So I have this question.
If a woman has sex with a man is she instantly married to the last man she had sex with?
Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh."
1 Corinthians 6:16 NIV
If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay the girl’s father fifty shekels of silver. [c] He must marry the girl, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives.

Deutoronomy 22:20-21 NIV

Deutoronomy 22:25-26 NIV
So if a man INTENTIONALLY marries a woman who is not a virgin, widow or rape victim, is that adultery because she would have been married to the previous man?
