Mitzvah #169 - Daughter-in-law

One may not marry one's son's wife - even after the son dies or divorces her.

One who has relationships with his daughter-in-law deserves to be stoned to death by Beth Din.

By Rabbinical decree this includes one's grandson's wives.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Verse: "The nakedness of your daughter-in-law you shall not uncover" (Vayikra 18:15)
