A woman can be betrothed if she asks the husband to give the money to someone else and doesn’t receive the money herself or if the husband himself doesn’t put up the money.  Rava explains where we derive this from.  Can she be the one to give the money?  If so, why does that work?  Can one betroth a woman by saying half of her is betrothed to him?  Or can he say half of him is betrothed to her?  Various questions are brought (and not answered) regarding combining 2 marriages with one peruta or 2 items (a woman and a cow, a woman and land).  If using something that has monetary value and not money itself, does one need to evaluate the item to know its precise value?
