  1. Daf Hayomi Torah thought Yevamoth 30a
    Mishnah. If two of three brothers were married to two sisters and the third was married to a stranger, and one of the sisters’ husbands divorced his wife, and when the brother who was married to the stranger died he who had divorced his wife married her and then died himself- this is a case concerning which it was said: and if any of-these died or were divorced. their rivals are permitted [The stranger who was taken in levirate marriage was never the rival of the sister of the wife of the surviving brother, since the sister had been divorced before the levirate marriage with the stranger had taken place.] Gemara. The reason [why the stranger who was taken in levirate marriage by one of the husbands of the sisters is permitted to the last surviving brother] is because he [the brother who divorced his wife] had divorced [his wife first] and [his brother] [the first husband of the stranger] died afterwards [so that the stranger was not even for one moment the rival of one of the sisters, either through marriage or through the levirate bond of subjection], but [if the other] [the first husband of the stranger] had died [first] and he [the brother who divorced his wife] divorced [his wife] afterwards [In which case the stranger came for a certain period under the levirate bond in respect of the husbands of the two sisters], she [the stranger] is forbidden [to marry the last surviving brother. Since she was, for a period at least, the rival of one of the sisters, through the levirate bond, she may never be married to the husband of that sister's sister (being forbidden to him as the rival of his wife's sister) even if the sister whose rival she was had been subsequently divorced and ceased to be her rival] said R. Ashi: this proves that a levirate bond exists [between the widow of a deceased childless brother and the levirs], even where two brothers are involved [since, in the case under discussion, the widow whose husband died before one of the sisters had been divorced was subject to two levirs and is, nevertheless, regarded as the rival of the divorced sister, in consequence of which she is forbidden to the last surviving brother].

    My theory. A B C are 3 brothers. A and B’s wives are sisters. C’s wife has no relationship whatsoever to A and B and to their wives. None of the wives have children. A divorces his wife. Terrorist kills C. A does yeebom with C’s widow.. Another terrorist kills A.

    The question is can B, the survivor from horrific terrorist attacks killing men in ancient Jerusalem---do yeebom, marry or halizah with the widow that was married to C?

    R. Ashi’s explanation is that B is forbidden wife of last surviving brother as the rival of the divorced sister. If she were not a divorcee she would not be forbidden. The Torah forbids a Kohen to marry a divorcee.

    Beautiful fascinating. “Hence a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife, so that they become one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24). Please God no more untimely deaths.
