comment Why didn't Yaakov see Rachel the night they were married?
@DoubleAA Well, if there's one masechta with which that assumption would be consonant it's Kidushin.

Are you assuming that the g'mara's directive there is a mitzva mid'Oraisa?

comment Translation of the Aruch haShulchan
@DoubleAA It's probably empty because people are confused by the presence of "Author's Introduction" before Orach Chayim instead of Choshen Mishpat.

comment Grammar of Birchot HaShachar
Not to put too broad a point on it, but the conjugations in your question also do not agree. E.g. "have...noticed...are...is...depending...limited...agree..." are all different, but your meaning is very clear and there is nothing strange about your usage. There must be some contextual indication that we would expect the conjugations to match in order for their difference to be remarkable, mustn't there?
