Kohen is not to marry a divorced woman.

 

 “They shall not take a women divorced from her husband” Vayikra 21:7

 

By the law of the Scribes –a woman who underwent Chalitza (+46 Positive Commandment)

is forbidden to a Kohen and she and her children are considered as profaned.

 

If a Kohen took any of the 3 woman listed above ( -138, -139 and -140) in proper marriage and was sexually intimate with her, he should be lashed.

 

A woman who is doubtfully profaned or profaned by the law of the Scribes should receive lashes for disobedience.

 

Female Kohanim are not instructed against marrying a disqualified Kohenim.
