7. MARRIAGE IS FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE NO (living) HUSBAND
Mt.5:32 whoever marries a divorced woman is committing adultery. Mark 10:11,12 When a woman puts away her husband and marries another, she commits adultery. Lu.16:18 whoever marries a woman put away commits adultery. Romans 7:2,3 husband lives - wife marries another - is adultery. 1Corinthians 7:28,39 ...and if a virgin marry she hath not sinned. (39) The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband lives; but if husband is dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord. Deuteronomy 22 :28,29 If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found; Then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.
Herodias, Philip's wife is an example of one man having another man's wife. John the Baptist lost his head over speaking out about this immoral marriage. Some believe God only accepts marriages of Christians. Are these three believers? I think not. Did John lose his head because he didn't know what he was talking about? NO! Some say this marriage was wrong because it was Herod's brother's wife (incest?). The same chapter in Leviticus that says it's wrong to have your brother's wife also says it's wrong to have another's wife (Leviticus18:16-20). Mark.6:17 says For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias' sake, his brother Philip's wife: for he had married her. For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother's wife.
Rahab the harlot was in the line of Christ. She was blessed for turning to God and was forgiven of her past sins. In the following references (Matthew 1:5) (Ruth.4:18-22) (Joshua 6:17,23,25) (Hebrews ll:31) we see Rahab as one of the faithful.
Because Joshua saved Her father's household I believe that she was still under her father [not married]. Joshua 6: 25 And Joshua saved Rahab the harlot alive, and her father's household, and all that she had; and she dwells in Israel even unto this day; because she hid the messengers, which Joshua sent to spy out Jericho.
Hebrews 11:31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.
Bathsheba wife of Uriah, in line of CHRIST. (Matthew 1: 6) And David the king begat Solomon of her that had been the wife of Urias. This is an example of adultery that David tried to cover up by murder. So that marriage ended because her husband was dead and another started after his death. David did not sin in Marrying a woman who had no living husband. David had to repent for the sins of Adultery, Murder, and Lies, and God forgave him, but he was told, "the sword shall never depart from your house." Reaping the harvest of the seeds we plant. David suffered much because of this sin Please read (2Samuel 11- 12: 24).
Michal was taken from David and “married” another man. Then she was taken from that man and returned David. This is an example of a woman in another "marriage" being returned to her right husband. 1Samuel 18:27, 25:44 2Samuel 3:13-16.
Gomer a wife that commits Adultery, Fornication, Prostitution, with no sign of repentance, but still a wife. (Hosea 1:2)

If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?
