Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

1.  Women are prohibited to come to the masjid irrespective of them being in menses or not.  With modern technology, there could be various ways for people out of the masjid to listen to the nikah conducted in the masjid.  A simple example is, a person is in the haram of makka puts /switches on his mobile phone and his family anywhere in the world would listen to the imam in the Haram.

2.  Fasting is compulsory upon every sane and mature muslim who witness’s the month of Ramadan.

 ( بُلُوغُ الْغُلَامِ بِالِاحْتِلَامِ وَالْإِحْبَالِ وَالْإِنْزَالِ ) وَالْأَصْلُ هُوَ الْإِنْزَالُ ( وَالْجَارِيَةِ بِالِاحْتِلَامِ وَالْحَيْضِ وَالْحَبَلِ ) وَلَمْ يَذْكُرْ الْإِنْزَالَ صَرِيحًا لِأَنَّهُ قَلَّمَا يُعْلَمُ مِنْهَا ( فَإِنْ لَمْ يُوجَدْ فِيهِمَا( شَيْءٌ ( فَحَتَّى يَتِمَّ لِكُلٍّ مِنْهُمَا خَمْسَ عَشْرَةَ سَنَةً بِهِ يُفْتَى ) لِقِصَرِ أَعْمَارِ أَهْلِ زَمَانِنَا.
