Brachos 31 – ברכות לא

Chana declared ‘I will seclude myself with a stranger in front of my husband’ which will result in my drinking the Sotah water.  How can she allow herself to transgress the prohibition of Yichud?

The Gemara says if one needs to fast on a Shabbos, he should nevertheless atone (for his neglecting Oneg Shabbos) by fasting again… If fasting on Shabbos requires atonement, how can one transgress a prohibition with the intention to atone for it later?

Eruvin 47 – עירובין מז

The Gemara concludes that perhaps we cannot apply those’halacha formulas’ to a machlokes within a Braisa.  Why could this not have been an answer to the Kushya from the Braisa of the three month wait period as well?
