QUESTION: Since marriage only allows two people to get married. I would like to know of the Bible’s opinion of open marriages and engaging in homosexuality while in a marriage? I don’t think that if anyone can be committed to one person, they shouldn’t get married.
ANSWER: The ancient world had “open marriages.” The male was married, had concubines, and visited prostitutes. The New Testament offers a different way of viewing marriage, one woman for one man at a time. It seems clear that Scripture does not allow for any same sex relationships in or out of marriage. Read First Corinthians and Romans (especially the first couple of chapters) for Paul’s thoughts on the subject of same sex sexual relationships.
