Can men only marry virgins and widows?

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.
[c] That is, about 1 1/4 pounds (about 0.6 kilogram)
Deuteronomy 22:28-29 NIV

"If a man seduces a virgin who is not pledged to be married and sleeps with her, he must pay the bride-price, and she shall be his wife. If her father absolutely refuses to give her to him, he must still pay the bride-price for virgins.
Exodus 22:16-17 NIV

If so does this mean that if another man marries her at a later time she has committed adultery against either the previous man or her husband?

If, however, the charge is true and no proof of the girl’s virginity can be found, she shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death. She has done a disgraceful thing in Israel by being promiscuous while still in her father’s house. You must purge the evil from among you.
Deutoronomy 22:20-21 NIV

But if out in the country a man happens to meet a girl pledged to be married and rapes her, only the man who has done this shall die. Do nothing to the girl; she has committed no sin deserving death. This case is like that of someone who attacks and murders his neighbor,
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? Or would it be fine because she committed adultery against her future husband with the previous man and therefor okay for the man to marry her, if he just keeps her pa…

Leviticus 20:13-15…not take a wife and her mother…

Lev 20:13 If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.
Lev 20:14 If a man takes a woman and her mother also, it is depravity; he and they shall be burned with fire, that there may be no depravity among you.
Lev 20:15 If a man lies with an animal, he shall surely be put to death, and you shall kill the animal.

I know you have all read this but it is very interesting in light of the SSM debate. Have you noticed that most mainstream Christian leaders connect SSM to polygyny? (ex: Dr. Dobson) The Bible clearly connects Homosexuality with Bestiality.

However look at the three verses above. Homosexuals are dealt with in the first verse and bestiality in the last, but there in verse 14 is a restriction on polygamy. You cannot take a wife and her mother. If the worlds standard (monogamy only) were true, should not this say, "If a man takes a woman and another woman…" No, that clearly is not the case. This is a restriction of a wife and her mother, and else where is a restriction about taking a sister to vex her. (Which also sheds light on that verse)

Now I know you guys all know this stuff, but it seems to me that these verses sandwiched the way they are provide a unique opportunity to share with other Christians…

Any thoughts? Have you ever used these scriptures to defend your position? Does it make sense to use it?

Food gluttony…Proverbs 23:20-21 "Be not among winebibbers; among riotous eaters of flesh: For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags."

Obesity is the greatest preventable cause of death in the world. Should eating be a freedom without responsibility? Is it a sin or a vice? Most people make lasting first impressions quickly. Is it wrong to think someone is overweight when they are (not a trick question)? Is the ability to have self-control in eating a trait that we should seek for ourselves, spouses or potential spouses? Is gluttony genetic? Can it be passed on to children or learned? How does gluttony affect relationships?
