When Christ was addressing divorce he expounded on marriage, and in doing so he pointed back to the garden of Eden and the beginning of creation to show God's intentions for man. And God intended Adam to have one wife, Eve.

But again let me ask you to provide me with the passages where we can see that Adam had more than one wife. I and many others would be very interested in this revelation, since I have read my Bible many times an I can't seem to recall anything like that.

Maybe I just overlooked it, but please help me out here.

Memphis could you answer this?

Memphis, would you take more than one wife? How old are you and are you already married?

Biblically, I can see how one could argue this point, however,

If you ask me, no matter how you slice it up or what reasons you come up with for wanting to do what you want to do without consequence- the Bible tells us that we are to respect our rulers and follow the law which reveals what is sin to us.  The law in America is that men are to have only one wife and women one husband, therefore regardless of who's example you want to use to justify polygamy it is illegal for we who are in America to practice it and therefore it is sin for us to do so.  Other cultures have different laws- David was not American

Is bang on

We're not living in Eden any longer.  There aren't just two people on the planet.  And we still have to be fruitful and multiply per the command of God in Genesis. 
And I don't charge God with sin because He had more than one wife. 
And if I want four or five wives, you know what? that is my God given right.

God also told wives to be obedient to their husbands.  Do you follow that command? 


No matter how you say it, that doesn't change what God created. We certainly can be fruitful and multiply with one wife or husband.

I follow it indeed, just ask my husband, my one and only.

Since multiple wives are not allowed legally in the US of A, this discussion is pretty much moot anyhow.

Yes I know what you mean. if my husband wanted to have another wife, I would be out of the door so fast and even I may get a gun and I am British and I dont even agree with owning a gun! The trouble is that this man is ignoring all the many teachings in the new testament that specifically say that we are to have one wife and one husband.

memphis please answer the question as to whether you are married cos if you are I would LOVE to know what your wife thinks of this. If you arent then may I suggest that you find one wife before you start thinking that you need more than one.
You may find that once you have told her what your feelings are on the matter she wouldnt want to marry you anyway. I cant see many women being happy about being married to a guy who wanted to be unfaithful.(and that is what it would be.)Not a good start for any mariage is it.How would you feel if your wife told you that she wants to have more than one husband as you cannot satisfy her. Also what would you say to those who would have no wife due to the fact that you had 2 or 3?

Sorry to be blunt, but this sort of thinking (as you have confirmred memphis) usually comes down to the fact of the man wanting to have sex with lots of different women and using The Bible to justify it. Sorry, it wont wash .Jesus himself made it clear, as did Paul, that each man is to have his own wife and each women her own husband (singular)as it was always mean to to be.

Answering questions best I can.  If I missed anyone's, please PM me. 

Multiple wives are not allowed in this country but there is no law against a
married man having girlfriends with whom he has made a vow.

I am 42 years old.  I am married. 

Not all laws are to be obeyed.  California has made it against the law to spank
children.  If I lived there, I would not obey that law if I had children.  Some states say men can marry men.  Not going to obey that law either. 


The thing is, the laws of God regarding physical relations have become so distorted by the melting pot American Church. 
We say sex is evil and can only be made acceptable when it is between one man and one woman.  Hmmmmm.  Why didn't God think to put it that over simplified when He wrote a whole chapter in the book of Leviticus? 

Maybe our hang-ups go back to some of the early misguided church “fathers

"Sex" is always good. It is the "Act/Sin" of doing it outside of marriage that is not good. God created "sex", so it is always good.

Making a vow does not make you married. If you find another woman you will be committing adultery and you know how God views that. Your desire to have sex with more than one woman is blinding you to what The Bible says on the matter.

Help me to understand, please.  What does the bible say on the matter?
God Himself says to David I gave thee thy master's house, and thy master's wives...
And then He told David if that had not been enough, He would have given him more.  More wives!! 

Does God tempt people to sin?  Heavens no!  James 1:13 says of God: neither tempteth he any man:

God said that David did right all of his days except in the matter of having Uriah the Hittite killed.  This can be found in 1 Kings 15:5.


All the twisting of passages like Matt 19:3-9 are just that: twisting. 


It is not wrong for a man to have several wives.  It is wrong for a woman to have more than one husband.  The husband is the head of his wife.

Maybe the laws regarding physical relations also have to do with ownership.  Father has rights to daughter, she is his property until she becomes married and then the ownership passes to the husband. 

I would like for my second wife to be very physically voluptuous.  Because usually that is a sign of fertility.  If she looks like Venus Williams, well then that would be awesome.  We’re praying that the right woman comes along soon. 
I think I'm going to puke.  No man will ever "own" me.  I am not an object or a piece of property.

In the early years of this country, certain men and women who considered themselves Christians made exactly the same arguments you are making:

It is in the Old Testament.
It is accepted in the Bible and appears to be approved by God.
It is “natural

If what I said makes ya want to puke, then read this:

Deut 5:21
Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour's wife, neither shalt thou covet thy neighbour's house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any [thing] that [is] thy neighbour's.

All of the above belong to the man signified by the words : any [thing] that [is] thy neighbour's.
Wife, house, field, manservant and maidservant, ox, ass,etc.
