comment Plastic gloves in Halacha
@SAH there is no Issur to touch Muktzeh, only to move it, which would then apply even with gloves.

Re Niddah: the Issurim you mention only apply to a Wife who is a Niddah. The question applies to Niddahs where there are no Harchakos, an unmarried girl over 12 for example.

comment Why isnt covering the place where hair meets the head good enough for a Sheitel?
@IsaacKotlicky I would argue the opposite. The one tefach is used from the forehead in, and displays the attachment of the hair to the scalp which would be Ossur even according to what I suggest. The reason of that is because it is lacking in Shiur.

Exactly. Which would allow any married womans' own hair so long as they wore a hair-band that covered the seams.

Hi Danny, in what way is a ponytail sticking out under a Sheitel different from her own hair but just covering the scalp attachment? Is it because it is little hair? Or because at least she has a covering on?

@DannySchoemann very interesting, something to think about is that a castrated person wouldn't be able to transgress anyway so that may carry extra leniency. thanks

@YeZ if the other question wanted sources, why does the unsourced answer have so many upvotes and no complaints from the mods about the lack of sources?

@ray perhaps. More so is there an Issur to remain married to her.

@DoubleAA right. I am not sure why this question was closed, nowhere in its alleged duplicate is any source presented whether or not they may live together without having relations.

comment Are there any halachic authorities which relate to the non-mechitza, pre-1967 prayers which were held at the Kotel?
Very interesting photos. Is there a place online to see olden day photos that will shed light on how they used to congregate, dress etc?

comment Would looking away help a Cohen stay Married to his wife?
Thanks, but I would say that here is worse as there is Raglayim LeDovor that a Rape did take place. Secondly, אינה בחזקת פרוצה בעריות wouldn't help here as even a Tznuah can be raped.

@ShmuelBrin Her witness testimony would only be counted as Shavya Anafsha Chaticha De'Issura. As far as he is concerned, there are ways she could be raped that wouldnt end the marriage. And maybe no rape happened at all in the end.
