  •  "Biblical Marriage" is not the one-man, one-woman (11+ / 0-)

    thing they think it is. Abraham, Jacob, Gideon, David and Solomon had multiple wives and God did not condemn them for it. Do not let anyone say that they believe in Biblical marriage unless they also believe in polygamy. And if they say that was only acceptable in Old Testament times then hit them with Matt 22:25  "Now there were with us seven brothers. The first died after he had married, and having no offspring, left his wife to his brother.” [the implication being that the brother would not only take care of her but also try to have children with her].

    •  Of course, because that was the custom (4+ / 0-)

      the woman was PROPERTY, to be kept in the family.

      Also, if she happened to be pregnant at the time of her husband's death, the children also were kept in the family, and in the bloodline.

      That was extremely important as well.
