Can one accept the consequences of someone else's actions? It would seem unfair and unlikely that one would be able to accept someone else's rewards. If that is true, does it also apply to accepting someone else's punishments?

    By speaking Lashon Hara about someone, you get their sins. So, technically, yes.

    Isn't that along the lines of when a man/husband/father bears the iniquities of his wife or daughter's vow after hearing then some time after disallowing it?

    Our rewards and punishments are not similar to tangible or intangible objects. They are not a currency in your account, they are not points on your scoreboard. They are a part of who you are. Can I transfer my life in this world and the next world onto another? The answer is obvious.
