Day Questions

Gifts were given to a wife from her parents-in-law, with the condition that she can have them as long as she is married to their son. So, once they divorce, is the wife required to return the gifts?

If the divorce has occurred before consummating the marriage, the gift-giver has the right to have the gifts returned. If they have consummated the marriage, the gift-giver has the right to have those gifts returned to him which have not been altered, like jewelry. If the gifts have been altered, like if the cloth is tailored, they do not have to be returned.

There is a substance widely used in the food market – for example, in cakes and muffins – called Glycerol (Glycerine), as a humectant or sweetener. Can I eat the cake if it contains this substance?
