Chapter 9, Mishna 2
Betrothal, pregnancy and levirate bond with a Yisroel are enough to disqualify a priest’s daughter from eating teruma, but the same relationships with a priest are not enough to qualify a Yisroel’s daughter to eat teruma. The same principles apply to Levite’s daughter, according to the opinion that only Levites may eat of the Levite’s tithe, but that’s a minority opinion because the Levite’s tithe does not possess inherent sanctity, and may thus be eaten by anyone after it is given to the Levites as their possession.
