Rav Shimon Eider in the Halachos of Pesach (IX:C:5) says: "Some Poskim hold that a married woman should nullify personal chometz." However, in footnote 70 Rabbi Eider writes this isn't found in printed books, but he has heard this from Poskim.

Are there Poskim nowadays who specifically require or exempt married women from the chametz-nullification procedure?

  • @Chatzkel the question was about her personal chametz. Everyone agrees a married woman can have personal chametz; that article is just about how common such a situation is likely to be nowadays

  • The first paragraph relates a story how he called his wife to remind her to be mevatel her chametz and the debate that ensued with the other rabbonim. He then explains why today marital financial relationship might be different than in earlier times.

  • @Chatzkel Yes. And how common it is for married women to own chametz is, again, not the question asked. What the default marital financial relationship may be nowadays is only relevant to how common it is for married women to own chametz.
