כתובות פרק א׳ משנה ג׳


With regard to an adult man who engaged in intercourse with a minor girl less than three years old; or a minor boy less than nine years old who engaged in intercourse with an adult woman; or a woman who had her hymen ruptured by wood or any other foreign object, for all these women their marriage contract is two hundred dinars, as their legal status is that of a virgin. This is the statement of Rabbi Meir. And the Rabbis say: The marriage contract of a woman whose hymen was ruptured by wood is one hundred dinars, as physically, since her hymen is not intact, she is no longer a virgin.

ומוכת עץ – if [piece of wood] had been inserted in her at that same place

כתובתן מאתים – it they simply married in an undefined manner

וחכמים אומרים: מוכת עץ כתובתה מנה – And the Halakha is according to the Sages, and even if he did not know her, her Ketubah is a Maneh, and it is considered an errant purchase.

שבא על הקטנה. פחותה מבת שלש שנים ויום אחד שאין ביאתה ביאה:

וקטן. פחות מבן תשע שאין ביאתו ביאה ובא על הגדולה:

ומוכת עץ. שנתקע לה עץ באותו מקום:

כתובתן מאתים. אם נישאו סתם:

וחכמים אומרים מוכת עץ כתובתה מנה. והלכתא כותייהו. ואפילו לא הכיר בה, כתובתה מנה, ולא הוי מקח טעות:
