I was considering the following verse:
1 Corinthians 7:8-9 To the unmarried and the widows I say that it is good for them to remain single as I am. But if they cannot exercise self-control, they should marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion.
If an unmarried or widowed woman was to fall in love with a married man, would this not be a command for them to enter a polygamous marriage?
Also, if a married man (I realize the verses above state "unmarried") fell in love with an unmarried or widowed woman, would it not be better for him to marry her also rather then "burn with passion" and perhaps participate in fornication with her?
