Nedarim 11:10-11

Nedarim 11:10

There are nine types of girl whose vows are upheld: (1) a girl over the age of majority (bogeres) who is an orphan*; (2) a girl between the ages of 12 and 12½ (naarah) who has come of age and who is an orphan*; (3) a naarah who has not yet come of age and who is an orphan*; (4) a bogeres whose father died; (5) a naarah who has come of age and whose father died; (6) a naarah who has not yet come of age and whose father died; (7) a naarah whose father died and who then came of age; (8) a bogeres whose father is alive; and (9) a naarah who has come of age and whose father is alive. Rabbi Yehuda includes a minor girl whose father married her off, and she was widowed or divorced and returned to him while still a minor.

*Not literally an orphan. If she married as a minor and was widowed or divorced, she is considered “an orphan in her father’s lifetime.”

Nedarim 11:11

If a woman says to her husband, “Konam I do not benefit from my father or your father if I do work for you” or “I do not benefit from you if I do work for my father or your father,” he may overturn the vow.
