I've witnessed the giving of a get, and it has many steps (the below bulletpoints are adapted from here). For example:
- the woman accepts the folded get into her cupped hands grasping it.
- The woman then raises her hands, while holding the get, about 30 centimeters high. This act called ‘hagbahah (raising)’, serves as a symbolic legal act of transfer of ownership.
- After the hagbahah, the woman places the get under her left armpit, next to her heart
- takes 2-3 steps forwards
- turns around, and retraces her steps (walking a total of 4 amot)
Presumably all of this is done because we're Machmirim and want to make sure the giving of the get was chal.
Why aren't we also this level of machmir for kinyan kiddushin? Namely, instead of just putting the ring on the kallah's finger, why doesn't she also do all these additional kinyanim that we do for a get?
