Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.
(1 Corinthians 7:2)
“It’s time for our culture to wake up and smell the sex pheromones: monogamy is not natural for many, or probably even most, humans. With people living longer than ever before, a greater tolerance toward the human impulse to experience sexual variety is needed. … History and biology suggest that strict monogamy, which has social advantages, is not a ‘one size’ fits all proposition.” — Meghan Laslocky, author
But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female.’ ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” In the house His disciples also asked Him again about the same matter. So He said to them, “Whoever divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery against her. And if a woman divorces her husband and marries another, she commits adultery.”
