View Wesley's Notes for Matthew 14:4
14:4 It is not lawful for thee to have her - It was not lawful indeed for either of them to have her. For her father Aristobulus was their own brother. John's words were rough, like his raiment. He would not break the force of truth by using soft words, even to a king.

Mt 14:4 It is not lawful for thee to have her. The marriage was unlawful for these three reasons: (1) The former husband of Herodias (Philip) was still living. (2) The former wife of Antipas was still living. (3) Besides, the Jewish law did not permit a man to marry his niece.

It not common nowadays to marry and only follow the one family advice in marriage because cultures are no longer original. Ethnicity has changed with a bit of Christian. Isnít right to marry a non-believer?
