From this:

To this:

Not a day goes by that I don't thank G-d that I married this fantastic woman.

Here's to many, many, many more years.

  4. Steve -

    Excellent question! It's more or less explained here.

    But, the short answer is that Jews are sensitive about writing (and erasing) the name of G-d. So, using a - means you're not writing out the name.

    To my knowledge, both the English spelling G-o-d and it's presence on screen are examples of not actually writing the name of G-d. But, as a nod to the concept, and because it makes me feel a little more comfortable, I use the abbreviation.

    In other words, it would be fine to write God. I just usually don't :-).
