For those who celebrate anniversaries, or for calculating the end of Shanah Rishonah, if a couple gets married in Adar of a non-leap-year, when is the anniversary celebrated in a leap year? Is it in the second Adar, like Bar and Bas Mitzvos? Or is it in the first Adar, like a yahrtzeit?

As per Rambam, Hilchos Milchamos 7:10 that Shanah Rishonah applies to the other exemptions from war as well (i.e. one who builds a house or plants a vineyard), my question can be extended to those cases as well.

  • ושמח מנין ימים של ושמח חייב בתשמיש המטה בשנה שהן כל ימות השנה חוץ מיה״כ - The Ba'al Haturim (Devarim 24:5, the passuk of Shana Rishona) seems to understand Shana Rishona ends at 354 days from when you get married. Mar 6 '19 at 20:06
  • @רבותמחשבות Not sure we can pasken off Ba'al HaTurim; after all, in any year but a shaleim non-leap year, his remez fails, even before we consider Adar.
