  •  Define wife (0+ / 0-)

    In the Bible we have a range of situations which may or may not qualify as legitimate but almost certainly result in a change of status

    sister = wife if you cohabit with her
    handmaiden = wife if you procreate with her
    daughter = wife if you procreate with her
    concubine = wife if her father gives her to you out of hospitality
    son or daughter to be sacrificed as a virgin to the gods is entitled to a month to bewail her virginity and attempt to get a husband or a child and become a wife which perhaps would be sufficient to protect her with the ownership of her body passing from father to husband.
    sacred prostitute = wife substitute
    sacred male prostitute likewise
    virgin = wife if she produces offspring
