Sitting on Wife’s Bed as Guests

At my in laws for yom tov wife is a Niddah.
Can I sit on my wife’s bed, or even when we are a guest it’s considered “her” bed?

Thank you,



Even if it’s only for a short stay, if the bed is specified for your wife’s for the duration of the stay, it isn’t permitted for you to lie down on it.

According to the Taz (195:6) it is likewise not permitted to sit on the bed (this is the general custom).

Best wishes.
