Chapter 14, Mishna 1, Chapter 15, Mishna 1
Do we have an obligation to prevent a minor from eating meat from an unslaughtered animal? This matters because a deaf-mute was similar to a minor before the law in ancient times, and we ask whether we need to prevent a deafmute from marrying in a prohibited manner. If a couple travels to another country, and the wife returns and testifies her husband died, do we allow her to remarry? Depends on whether there was peace between them and peace in the world. Wartime and other calamities like famine, earthquake, snakes, etc. might lead her to believe her husband was dead when in fact he might have been saved against all odds.
