Chapter Summary

The four lawful wives give their own full honor-price from their excess for a loan and for deposit and for lending in regard to contracts and for contracts, and they give two-thirds of their own honor-price from their half of the marriage contribution. Each woman in general gives from her own property the little gifts that are in the book to her needy friends. The woman has half the labor of husbandry and one-third of one-third of labor that she got from it, and he has two-ninths in that case. A wife goes about her work until she gets one-ninth from him, and he does not own land or seed in that case. The share of the secondary wife's labor is forfeited; the share of the primary wife's land and stock and labor is forfeited.

Keywords: husband; labor; marriage contribution; primary wife; secondary wife
