  • A single witness who testifies that a husband died is believed. If a woman says that her husband drowned, it is the same as saying that he was killed at war. If a hundred women testify that a man died, it is the same as the testimony of one witness. If witnesses testify that they saw someone drown in water that has no end, his wife is forbidden.

  • Brief Insight
    A SMALL BATTLE

    If a woman says that they were attacked by bandits, and she escaped and her husband was killed, she is believed. Rashi explains that a woman is not afraid of bandits, because she knows that they will spare her in order to be promiscuous with with her, and therefore she will stay there until she is sure that her husband died. Tosfos explains that since a woman does not engage in battle, the bandits will have mercy on her and spare her. However, in a place of war, since arrows and stones are falling indiscriminately, she is afraid to stay there. The Mordechai writes that if there is a small skirmish and the enemy is attacking only the men and not the women, the women are not afraid to stay there, and therefore such a situation has the same law as the case of the bandits.
  • Quick Halachah
    ATTACKED BY BANDITS

    If a woman says that they were attacked by bandits, and she escaped and her husband was killed, she is believed, because it is not usual for bandits to kill a woman. Therefore, we are not concerned that just as she escaped, perhaps her husband also escaped. (Shulchan Aruch EH 17:54)
