A man can tell a woman to marry me on condition X and if its fulfilled the kiddushin is valid. Can a woman during kiddushin say she will only marry the guy based on a certain condition?

Found the answer Shulchan Aruch (also in the Rambam): Siman 38 1 המקדש על תנאי וכל דיני תנאי ובו לט סעיפים: המקדש על תנאי אם נתקיים התנאי מקודשת ואם לאו אינה מקודשת בין שיהיה התנאי מן האיש בין שיהיה מן האשה:

    Yes, she can.the general rule is, if one can make a shliach she can make a condition.

    Pretty sure she can. I believe the Gemara in kiddushin even discusses cases of women who made conditions like “I’ll marry you on the condition that you are a kohen” and then they turned out to be untrue and so on so the Gemara discusses the law. Jul 28, 2022 at 21:08
  • @CuriousYid the Gemara is in Kiddushin 49
