"When the parents-in-law are still alive the daughter-in-law sleeps in the left compartment. When someone in the family dies, she must move her bed elsewhere, as the compartment is then reserved for keeping the body of the dead. In the days before the burial, husbands must not sleep with their wives. They have to sleep in outer compartments with their brothers and sisters. Only after the funeral may the daughter-in-law come back to her compartment. ...Only after the parents-in-law die may the daughter-in-law move in to sleep in the 'owner's' compartment."
