Ruling 2510

If a woman’s husband marries a girl who is being breast- fed and his [first] wife breastfeeds the girl, then based on obligatory precaution the woman becomes forever unlawful for him, and as a precautionary measure he must divorce the woman and never marry her again. If the milk is related to him, the girl who is being breastfed also becomes forever unlawful for him. And if the milk is related to the woman’s previous husband, then based on obligatory precaution the marriage contract is invalid.
