@DoubleAA right but this is totally ambiguous. could just as well say it refers to 24 hrs.

comment When would a man have married multiple women on the same day?
@MonicaCellio read it "because of this" i.e. these types of scenarios. could be the mishna wrote it here because you might think it was done only for common cases where this may be problematic such as business deals but not for kesuvos where this would be rare. as is the normal way of talmud, they teach the biggest chidush so you know the other cases too. you can see the talmud brought a story from other documents

mishna also discusses marrying 3 year old girls and even less than this. does that mean it was common? it's just trying to teach you certain laws

comment Mocking God- sources
"But if a person should act highhandedly.., he is blaspheming the Lord, and that soul shall be cut off from among its people. For he has scorned the word of the Lord and violated His commandment; that soul shall be utterly cut off" (Number 15:31-32)
