Chapter 1, Mishna 1
Do you have to have betrothal and then chuppah? What happens if you skip the betrothal? What is symbolic exchange? Can wife be acquired this way? Can woman be released from marriage by means of halitza? Can a woman be acquired through money? How long do Hebrew girls sold into slavery have to serve? How can Hebrew slave be released? Can master of Hebrew maidservant sell her? Can he marry her? What if he doesn’t marry her? Do earnings of daughter belong to her father?
What happens to a rapist? What are similarities in legal status between maidservant and wife? Do grandchildren have the same status as children? Who keeps betrothal document? What is legal status of an alonis? Does adulthood release maidservant from master’s authority?
