Nothing human is in its eyes mean or trivial; everything is regulated and sanctified by religion.
Religious precept and duty accompany man from his earliest years to the grave and beyond it.
A WOMAN PROSELYTE, A WOMAN CAPTIVE, AND A WOMAN SLAVE, WHO HAVE BEEN REDEEMED, CONVERTED, OR FREED [WHEN THEY WERE] LESS THAN THREE YEARS AND ONE DAY OLD THEIR KETHUBAH IS TWO HUNDRED [ZUZ].
AND THERE IS WITH REGARD TO THEM THE CLAIM OF [NON-]VIRGINITY. He tells us that, according to the Sages, the hymen of a girl younger than three literally grows back again. Daiches (25) See also the discussion of Niddah 44b and 45a, below.
(3) But Samuel maintains: Scripture writes, [And thou shalt not lie with mankind] as with the lyings of a woman.That is, Americans generally consider sex with a fifteen year old, a twelve year old, a six year old, and a three-year-old on a continuous scale of condemnation.The younger the child, the greater the condemnation.(17) Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Kethuboth 11a Soncino 1961 Edition, page 54 This seems like a generous and humanitarian ruling, the creation of a legal fiction of virginity when the woman is no longer physiologically a virgin. As we continue to explore the Talmud doctrines on child-adult sex, we will see further confirmation that the Talmud Sages believed that the hymen regenerates in a girl younger than three.In modern America, sex between an adult and a child is condemned in proportion to the youth of the child.
