BaruchDavid asked:

How can virginity be proven and a man go to court claiming wife not a virgin when the breaking of the Besulim is unreliable evidence. Wouldnt the fact that breaking the Besulim being poor evidence falsy accuse many women of not being virgins.

The Kollel replies:

Dear Baruch,

Hello there and thanks for your question. The issue you raise is discussed on Daf 10a. The Gemara explains that after a person invested so much in the wedding meal, he would not want it to go to waste, by falsely accusing her of not being a virgin.

Kol Tuv,

Y. Landy
