Ketubot, Chapter Four, Mishnah Five
This mishnah discusses the exact point in which a betrothed woman ceases to be in her fathers domain and is transferred to her husbands domain. We should note that different sources reflect different answers to this question. The question is of import because as long as she is in her fathers domain, he inherits her and he benefits from her work. Once she is in her husbands domain, the husband gains such rights. Furthermore, there is importance for an Israelite girl who is betrothed to a priest. As long as she is in her fathers domain, she does not eat terumah. She is allowed to eat terumah when she enters her husbands domain.
1) She remains in the domain of her father until she enters the domain of her husband [by going into the bridal chamber] at marriage.
2) If her father delivered her to the agents of the husband she passes into the domain of her husband.
a) If her father went with the husbands agents or if the fathers agents went with the husbands agents she remains in the domain of her father.
b) If her fathers agents delivered her to the husbands agents she passes into the domain of her husband.
Section one: In a normal situation the girl is in her fathers domain until she enters the bridal chamber (huppah) with the intent of becoming married.
Section two: The following clauses of the mishnah deal with a situation in which there is some distance to be traveled between the fathers home and the husbands home. If the father turns his girl over to her husbands agents, she is already considered to be married. If her husband is a priest, on her journey she may eat terumah. If the father or his agents accompany her on the trip, then she is still in her fathers domain. She enters into her husbands domain only when she is fully turned over to him or to his agents.
