    Richard,

    Deut 17:14-20 outlined what God revealed to Moses what a king should do or not.

    "Neither shall he multiply wives to himself, THAT HIS HEART TURN NOT AWAY:"Deu 17:17

    Solomon had 700 wives, many of which were for political alliances with other countries. They, in fact, did turn his heart away from God.

    There are religions today that justify polygamy on the basis that lots of men in the Old Testament had many wives. They read and interpret The Scriptures with no understanding! Listen to what Jesus said about marriage.

    "Have ye not read, that He which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder." Mat 19:4-6

    This answers ANY and ALL questions regarding marriage, what the definition of marriage is and how marriage should end. God's intent from the beginning was that the family unit was ONE man joined to ONE woman becoming ONE flesh for ONE lifetime.
