331 - HAVING INTERCOURSE WITH ONE'S FATHER'S WIFE


Leviticus 18:8 --The nakedness of your father's wife you shall not uncover; it is your father's nakedness.”

“The female relatives whom a man may not marry are alike in this respect – that as a rule they are constantly together with him in his house… If we were allowed to marry any of them, and were only precluded from sexual intercourse with them without marriage, most people would constantly have become guilty of misconduct with them. This is one of the reasons why intermarriage with a near relative is forbidden. But according to my opinion the prohibition serves another object, namely, to inculcate chastity into our hearts.”*

* Moreh Nebuchim III, 49
