Default Re:Sex voor het huwelijk?

Sorry voor de o zo lange post, maar ik denk niet dat het anders gelezen wordt.

Let no prudent man, after giving his daughter to one (man), give her again to another; for he who gives (his daughter) whom he had before given, incurs (the guilt of) speaking falsely regarding a human being.
-Manusmriti, 4-71 (The Laws of Manu)

Though a man may have accepted a damsel in due form, he may abandon (her if she be) blemished, diseased, or deflowered, and (if she have been) given with fraud.
-Manusmriti, 4-72

If anybody gives away a maiden possessing blemishes without declaring them, (the bridegroom) may annul that (agreement or arrangement)) with the evil-minded giver.
-Manusmriti, 4-73

A man who has business (abroad) may depart after securing a maintenance for his wife; for a wife, even though virtuous, may be corrupted if she be distressed by want of subsistence.
-Manusmriti, 4-74

If the husband went on a journey after providing (for her), the wife shall subject herself to restraints in her daily life; but if he departed without providing (for her), she may subsist by blameless manual work.
-Manusmriti, 4-75

If the husband went abroad for some sacred duty, (she) must wait for him for eight years, if (he went) to (acquire) learning or fame (she must wait for him) six (years); and if he went for pleasure, three years.
-Manusmriti, 4-76

For one year let a husband bear with a wife who hates him; but after (the lapse of) a year let him deprive her of her property and cease to cohabit with her.
-Manusmriti, 4-77

She who shows disrespect to her husband who is addicted to (some evil) passion, who is a drunkard or diseased, (she) shall be deserted for three months (and be) deprived of her ornaments and furniture.
-Manusmriti, 4-78

But she who shows aversion towards a mad or outcast (husband), a eunuch, one destitute of manly strength, or one afflicted with such diseases as punish crimes*, shall neither be cast off nor be deprived of her property.
* (Some words may be missing as the meaning here is not clear.)
-Manusmriti, 4-79

She who drinks spirituous liquor, is of bad conduct, rebellious, diseased, mischievous, or wasteful, may at any time be superseded (by another wife).
-Manusmriti, 4-80

A barren wife may be superseded in the eighth year; she whose children (all) die (may be superseded) in the tenth (year); she who bears only daughters (may be superseded)in the eleventh (year), but she who is quarrelsome, (may be superseded) without delay.
-Manusmriti, 4-81

But a sick wife, who is kind (to her husband) and virtuous in her conduct, may be superseded (only) with her own consent and must never be disgraced.
-Manusmriti, 4-82

A wife who, being superseded, in anger departs from (her husband’s) house, must either be instantly confined or cast off in the presence of the family.
-Manusmriti, 4-83

But she who, though having been forbidden, drinks spirituous liquor even at festivals, or goes to public spectacles or assemblies, shall be fined six Krishnalas.
-Manusmriti, 4-84

If twice-born men (Brahmin, Kshatriya and Vaisya) wed women of their own (caste) and of other (lower castes), the seniority, honour, and habitation of those (wives) must be (settled) according to the order of castes (Varna).
-Manusmriti, 4-85

Among all (twice-born men) the wife of equal caste alone, not a wife of a different caste by any means, shall personally attend her husband and assist him in his daily sacred rites.
-Manusmriti, 4-86

But he who foolishly causes that (duty) to be performed by another, while his wife of equal caste is alive, is declared by the ancients (to be) as (despicable) as a Chandala (sprung from the) Brahmana (caste).
-Manusmriti, 4-87

To a distinguished handsome suitor of equal caste should (a father) give his daughter in accordance with the prescribed rule, though she have not attained (the proper age).
-Manusmriti, 4-88

But the maiden, though marriageable, should rather stop in (the father’s) house until death, than that he should ever give her to a man destitute of good qualities.
-Manusmriti, 4-89

‘Let mutual fidelity continue until death,’ this may be considered as the summary of the highest law for husband and wife.
-Manusmriti, 4-101

Let man and woman, unite in marriage, constantly exert themselves, that (they may not be) disunited (and) may not violate their mutual fidelity.
-Manusmriti, 4-102

Thus has been declared to you the law for a husband and his wife, which is intimately connected with conjugal happiness, and the manner of raising offspring in times of calamity.
-Manusmriti, 4-103

If among all the wives of one husband one (wife) has a son, Manu declares them all to be mothers of male children through that son.
-Manusmriti, 4-183

On failure of each better (son), each next inferior one is worthy of the inheritance; but if there be many of equal rank, they shall all share the estate.
-Manusmriti, 4-184
