Issues Concerning Marriage
13If a man marries a woman and goes to her, and afterward he hates her 14and accuses her with unfounded charges and defames her and says, “I married this woman, but when I approached her I found that she did not have evidence of virginity,” 15then the father and mother of the girl are to produce evidence of the girl's virginity and bring it to the elders of the city at the gate.
16The father of the girl shall say to the elders, “I gave my daughter to this man as a wife, and afterward he hated her, 17so he has accused her with unfounded charges by saying, ‘I have found that your daughter does not have evidence of virginity,’ but here is the evidence of my daughter's virginity.” Then they are to spread out the bed covering in front of the elders of the city.
18Then the elders of that city will take the man and discipline him. 19They will fine him a hundred pieces of silver and give them to the father of the girl because the man defamed a virgin of Israel. She shall continue to be his wife. He is not allowed to divorce her as long as he lives.
