Recently a Rabbinical Court in Jerusalem approvied a pilgesh in certain situations where a man cannot reproduce with his wife.

The Vilna Gaon and others (including Jerusalem Talmud, possibly Bavli with other girsa?) prohibit pilegesh without Kiddushin. Does this court approve of pilegesh with or without kiddushin?

    What does it mean when it says that the wife "refuses to grant her husband a divorce". I did not think a divorce was granted by the wife. – Avrohom Yitzchok Sep 21 '15 at 16:39

    @AvrohomYitzchok just guessing, but perhaps she refuses to accept it somehow – jj2 Sep 21 '15 at 16:46
