7) [line 7] HIGI'A ZEMAN V'LO NIS'U, OCHLOS MI'SHELO V'OCHLOS BI'TERUMAH - [After Eirusin (betrothal), the Rabanan decreed that a virgin must be given twelve months to prepare her jewelry and her other needs for the wedding and a widow must be given thirty days. After this time, the groom must consummate the marriage through Nisu'in.] If the time for the Nisu'in came and they did not get married [because the groom delays the wedding, he is obligated to begin supporting his wife even though they are not yet married.] The Arusos eat (are provided for) from the grooms' possessions and eat Terumah (if the grooms are Kohanim) (Kesuvos 57a).

8) [line 8] KA MASHMA LAN, L'OLAM - our Mishnah teaches us that she may not eat Terumah even though she is provided for by her groom [who is a Kohen] until the marriage

12) [line 35] SETAMEI SETAMEI KETANI - the Tosefta delineates cases where the intentions of the couple are unspecified [as to whether they intend only to rest (la'Lin) or to get married (l'Nisu'in), and rules that the Halachah is based upon the owner of the courtyard into which they entered]
