The Chasam Sofer* adds another reason of
his own for this great Yom Tov of Tu B’av.
The Gemoro (Moed Katan 9a) says on the Pasuk
(Melochim 1:8:64) וילכו לאהליהם שמחים וטובי לב –
לאהליהם They came home and their wives were Tehoros.
וטובי לב They all became pregnant with a Ben Zochor.
על כל הטובה
They were forgiven for eating on Yom Kippur.
The last person to reach his home in Nehar Peros was on the 7th of Cheshvan (Ta’anis10a)
If you count from the 7th of Cheshvan, 271 days of pregnancy (Nidah 38a) they will have given birth on the 15th of Av which was their sign of Kaparah.
According to the Chasam Sofer, perhaps we can add an additional Simcha on Tu B’av.
They all had boys and realized that in the next few years
there won’t be any Shidduch crisis.
