comment A wife wants to stop going to the mikva. What does that mean for the husband?
See Lev. 20:18. Until going to the mikvah, a woman retains the status of niddah. See Rambam, Issurei Biah 4:3 chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/960651/jewish/…

comment וְהִתְקִין לוֹ מִמֶּנּוּ בִּנְיַן עֲדֵי עַד Is the translation of מִמֶּנּוּ **His** very self or his very self?
לימוד זכות - It may be a typo, in that a vigilant editor hyper corrected "his" to "His."

נוי עבודה זרה is also a category, for which I believe there is bittul (and selling constitutes bittul)

comment Bal Tashchit and Chametz
I would imagine that this would not fall under bal tashchit in the first place, since bal tashchit is likely defined as destruction for no purpose, whereas here the destruction is for the purpose of fulfilling a mitzvah; thus there would be no necessity to invoke עשה דוחה לא תעשה

@warz3 I suspect that megadef does not constitute heresy because it does not imply denial of God

comment Can a parent “victim” forgive a child due the death penalty?
@loewian he obviously doesn't permit suicide, but says there's no obligation of hatzalah because it is like someone throwing his property away.

comment Can a parent “victim” forgive a child due the death penalty?
@loewian I am pretty sure that Minchas Chinuch holds that anyone can allow someone to hit him. This probably also relates to his position which R. Moshe argues vehemently against in which he applies the rules of dinei mamonos to someone committing suicide.
