The article stated: "… for years, he’s been going out with one of my dear childhood friends, a real catch:"

A few questions:

1. Has his order changed the rules regarding monk's dating?
2. If not has he given up the robe?
3. Is that relevant to what he said in the video? (which I watched) Just seems like gossip.

I like him as a teacher a lot so it's not about snark. Just seeking clarification.

Steve Vegas Greatest living teacher hands down.

Pith instruction starts at 6:14, ends at 6:30 – he pretty much outlines the whole deal in 16 seconds.
