Only Virgin girls and or Widowed women have a Biblical Authority to take a Husband.
Scripture reveals that when a virgin girl has sex with a man, she becomes “Known” by that man. She becomes “Joined” to the man as One Flesh. Society should recognize said couple as man and wife. Man’s failure to recognize them man and wife is not the fault of the Scriptures.
Paul declares — “There is a difference between the wife and the virgin. The unmarried woman cares about the things of the Lord…But she who is married cares about the things of the world.” 1 Corinthians 7:34
Question — who is the ‘unmarried’ according to Paul? Answer — the Virgin.
A couple questions to ponder…..Please take these Polls……………..
Scripture reveals that only “Death” will separate the One Flesh Union. Hence why Widows are the other category of women who have the Biblical authority to take a husband.
Paul admonishes the Corinthians that only ‘death’ will sever this one flesh union. He writes —
“A wife is bound by law as long as her husband lives; but if her husband dies, she is at liberty to be married…” 1 Corinthians 7:39
A more thorough explanation —
“For the woman who has a husband is bound by the law to her husband as long as he lives. But if the husband dies, she is released from the law of her husband. So then if, while her husband lives, she marries another man, she will be called an adulteress; but if her husband dies, she is free from that law, so that she is no adulteress, though she has married another man.” Romans 7:2-3
It is my assertion that if one applies the following Rubric to all Scripture pertaining to Sex and Marriage, one will find perfect balance and harmony.
Rubric — Only Virgin girls and Widowed women have permission to take a husband and it be righteous. When a virgin girl has sex, she becomes joined to the man as one flesh. Only death will sever this bond. If the non-virgin woman does not remain under the authority of her first lover (as a wife), she will be understood as “defiled”. Defiled means that she can have no other husband unless the first husband/lover is dead. She is ‘defiled’ because she is joined to a man as ‘one flesh’. If a different man would take her as a wife, he would be sexually immoral as she is joined to another man. This is a sin against the body.
Apply this rubric to all Scripture pertaining to sex and marriage and you will find perfect harmony.
