Marital relations on Yom Kippur

Marital relations:[1]

Marital relations are forbidden on Yom Kippur.

Harchakos:  All the laws of Harchakos that apply when ones wife is in the state of Nida apply equally throughout the entire[2] duration of Yom Kippur even if ones wife is pure. This is a safeguard to avoid marital relations.

Speaking with wife: One should refrain from excessive speech with one’s wife on Yom Kippur.

[2] By Tishe Beav we rule that by day one may be lenient. Seemingly this is because by T.B.  its only a Rabbinical prohibition and by day there is less of a suspicion that they will have relations.
