Mitzvah #165 - Marrying one's mother

One is not allowed to marry one's mother.

One who has relationships with their mother deserves to be stoned to death by Bet Din.

By Rabbinic decree this includes grandmothers as well.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Verse: "...and the nakedness of your mother you shall not uncover" (Vayikra 18:7)
