|Bais Ovi: Time Off From Torah For Weddings & Sheva Brachos|
|The gemara says that you stop learning for Hachnasas Kallah. What does that entail, going to a Chupah? Staying for the meal? What about Sheva Brachos? Also the gemara says that you may not indulge in the se'uda of a Choson and Kallah if you do not gladden their hearts. Does this include Sheva Brachos?|
Rav Yitzchok Eizek Liebes in Shu"T Bais Ovi 5:14 says that when the gemara allows for Bitul Torah for Hachnasas Kallah it is specifically to escort the Choson to his Chupah as per the wording of the Rema (EH 6:1). The heter of bitul torah does not go beyond that. Similarly says the Bais Ovi, it is logical that the gemara that talks about not enjoying the meal of a choson without making him happy refers to the wedding meal and not the Sheva Brachos.
