1. And this also has been established that no one will marry his father-in-law’s widow or his brother-in-law’s widow or his son-in-law’s widow
2. Let no one take as his wife the widow of any blood relative of his wife as far as the third generation.
3. If they are found in the fourth or fifth generation, let them not be separated.
4. A man is equally connected to his own blood relatives and the blood relatives of his wife.
