Being that Biblical history has been replete with the record of Hebrew patriarchs having multiple concubines . . .
Genesis 25:6 But to the sons of his concubines Abraham gave gifts, and while he was still living he sent them away from his son Isaac, eastward to the east country.
Genesis 30:1 When Rachel saw that she bore Jacob no children, she envied her sister; and she said to Jacob, "Give me children, or I shall die!"
2 Jacob's anger was kindled against Rachel, and he said, "Am I in the place of God, who has withheld from you the fruit of the womb?"
3 Then she said, "Here is my maid Bilhah; go in to her, that she may bear upon my knees, and even I may have children through her."
4 So she gave him her maid Bilhah as a wife; and Jacob went in to her.
5 And Bilhah conceived and bore Jacob a son.
6 Then Rachel said, "God has judged me, and has also heard my voice and given me a son"; therefore she called his name Dan.
7 Rachel's maid Bilhah conceived again and bore Jacob a second son.
8 Then Rachel said, "With mighty wrestlings I have wrestled with my sister, and have prevailed"; so she called his name Naphtali.
9 When Leah saw that she had ceased bearing children, she took her maid Zilpah and gave her to Jacob as a wife.
10 Then Leah's maid Zilpah bore Jacob a son.
11 And Leah said, "Good fortune!" so she called his name Gad.
12 Leah's maid Zilpah bore Jacob a second son.
13 And Leah said, "Happy am I! For the women will call me happy"; so she called his name Asher.
14 In the days of wheat harvest Reuben went and found mandrakes in the field, and brought them to his mother Leah. Then Rachel said to Leah, "Please give me some of your son's mandrakes."
15 But she said to her, "Is it a small matter that you have taken away my husband? Would you take away my son's mandrakes also?" Rachel said, "Then he may lie with you tonight for your son's mandrakes."
16 When Jacob came from the field in the evening, Leah went out to meet him, and said, "You must come in to me; for I have hired you with my son's mandrakes." So he lay with her that night.
17 And God responded to Leah, and she conceived and bore Jacob a fifth son.
18 Leah said, "God has given me my hire because I gave my maid to my husband"; so she called his name Issachar.
19 And Leah conceived again, and she bore Jacob a sixth son.
20 Then Leah said, "God has endowed me with a good dowry; now my husband will honor me, because I have borne him six sons"; so she called his name Zebulun.
21 Afterwards she bore a daughter, and called her name Dinah.
22 Then God remembered Rachel, and God responded to her and opened her womb.
23 She conceived and bore a son, and said, "God has taken away my reproach";
24 and she called his name Joseph, saying, "May the LORD add to me another son!"
25 When Rachel had borne Joseph, Jacob said to Laban, "Send me away, that I may go to my own home and country.
26 Give me my wives and my children for whom I have served you, and let me go; for you know the service which I have given you."
27 But Laban said to him, "If you will allow me to say so, I have learned by divination [ "divination?" ] that the LORD has blessed me because of you;
[ Note that the entire Jacobic/Israeli tribal structure, even yet mentioned by the twelve tribal names in the future-prophecies-book of Revelation (chapter 7), was and is built upon one-man-with-four-woman God-allowed-and-never-rebuked polygamy, which Hebrew-religion marital relationships were all simultaneously ongoing ].
Second Samuel 5:13 And David took more concubines and wives from Jerusalem, after he came from Hebron; and more sons and daughters were born to David.
Second Samuel 15:16 So the king went forth, and all his household after him. And the king left ten concubines to keep the house.
First Kings 11:3 [Solomon] had seven hundred wives, princesses, and three hundred concubines; and his wives turned away his heart.
First Chronicles 3:9 All these were David's sons, besides the sons of the concubines; and Tamar was their sister.
Second Chronicles 11:21 Rehoboam loved Maacah the daughter of Absalom above all his wives and concubines (he took eighteen wives and sixty concubines, and had twenty-eight sons and sixty daughters)
Esther 2:14 In the evening she went, and in the morning she came back to the second harem in custody of Shaashgaz the king's eunuch who was in charge of the concubines; she did not go in to the king [Ahusuerus] again, unless the king delighted in her and she was summoned by name.
Ecclesiastes 2:8 I also gathered for myself silver and gold and the treasure of kings and provinces; I got singers, both men and women, and many concubines, man's delight.
Song of Solomon 6:8 There are sixty queens and eighty concubines, and maidens without number.
Song of Solomon 6:9 My dove, my perfect one, is only one, the darling of her mother, flawless to her that bore her. The maidens saw her and called her happy; the queens and concubines also, and they praised her.
Daniel 5:2 Belshazzar, when he tasted the wine, commanded that the vessels of gold and of silver which Nebuchadnezzar his father had taken out of the temple in Jerusalem be brought, that the king and his lords, his wives, and his concubines might drink from them.
. . . and the Holy Spirit, through His Scriptural author Saint Paul, forbad only bishops and deacons from being simultaneously in a married state with more than one woman . . .
First Timothy 3:2 Now a bishop must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, sensible, dignified, hospitable, an apt teacher,
First Timothy 3:12 Let deacons be the husband of one wife, and let them manage their children and their households well.
Titus 1:5 This is why I left you in Crete, that you might amend what was defective, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you,
6 if any man is blameless, the husband of one wife, and his children are believers and not open to the charge of being profligate or insubordinate.
7 For a bishop, as God's steward, must be blameless; he must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain,
8 but hospitable, a lover of goodness, master of himself, upright, holy, and self-controlled;
9 he must hold firm to the sure word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to confute those who contradict it.
. . . ( thus the understanding that for non-clergy non-church-officials lay-person congregants what was (and yet still is!) allowable (though admittedly perhaps rare and maybe inconvenient for sloganizing with not 'One Man, One Woman' but instead: 'One Husband, Multiple Concubines') . . .
. . . and because of the plethora of magazine pics and videos porn and masseuse/escort prostitutes readily available (particularly here across America now in the early 21st century), especially on Backpage internet and advertised on TV and in phone books and metro tabloids . . .
. . . and because many women have recurrent and sometimes extended diverse handicaps, maladies, sickness, disabilities, monthly menstrual prohibitions, increasing disinterest in doing sex and/or certain types of sexual behavior such as performing fellatio, frustrated with the previous-masturbation-exacerbated erectile-dysfunction limpid-and-flaccid impotence of particularly older men . . .
. . . and because laws against fornication have been overturned and purged so that many young people freely cohabitate together in sexual immorality with completely immunity . . .
. . . and because of adversarial and malicious chauvinism and the non-cooperative spirit of rebellious and defiant feminist sexism of capreciously-frigid sadistic girls and women tyrannizing with rampant imposition of out-of-place, non-restricted, and sexually-harassing non-solicited female-human mopheadedness and naked-armed sleeveslessness and nude-legged slackslessness and exposing parts of bare female feet with soxless flipflops and sandals (especially during warmer weather) in practically every place males go to . . .
. . . and because the national situation has become so degraded that homosexual sodomy unions in certain states of the Union are accepted by all levels of government . . .
. . . what is desperately needed is an efficient and discreet catalyst offering the opportunity for decently-attired younger Christian women past puberty (aged 15 to 35 years old) to become available for acquisition and deployment as permanent-marital-relationship concubines to already-married Christian men (past puberty, age 16 to 76+) seeking an additional, non-State-registered, common-law-concubine spouse for permanent marital relationship with such.
Such, under present American law, is not to be considered "polygamy," because any such concubine here in America now in 2014 and beyond would legally still be regarded as a 'Single' in terms of government identification and registration pertaining to such financially-related phenomena as Social Security, the IRS, and so forth.
That does not mean that a non-government-sponsored Christian marriage ceremony with choice Christian witnesses cannot take place between a genuinely-Christian older man and his young-adult authentically-Christian concubine. It does require, however, that no State Marriage License be involved nor signed, as was the case during the 18th, 19th, and early part of the 20th century in the United States.
Currently, of course, an Arab or African sheik or chief bringing his harem of wives into this country is not required by American law to desert, disown, nor divorce any of those women in his privately-owned marital flock.
Hence, the novel presence of this Christian Concubine Connexxxion.
Perhaps one of the best ways for an older already-happily-married man to somewhat-secretly solicit a targeted personal-vehicle-owning, specific-local church-attending, and perhaps yet-available young Christian woman who has been under his casual surveillance in that same local-church parking lot (and who, by web-surfing chance, word-of-mouth, direct or indirect advertisement, etc.) has come to know of this Christian Concubine Connexxxion via the internet (as, for example, at http://cdccmn2.tripod.com or http://cdcv.tripod.com) is for that man to (without her nor a parking-lot security guard observing) place an envelope (on which he has printed the last three alpha-numeric-ID characters of his license plate preceded by three dots, such as " . . . XVF, which envelope contains a copy of the http://summerclothes.tripod.com/mateprep.htm under her vehicle's windshield wiper or dropped on her driver's seat through the slightly-opened-for-ventilation vehicle window on a very warm day.
Assuming the young lady is broadminded enough to be curious about the obstruction under her windshield wiper, carefully remove it, read the license-plate ID imprinted on the envelope, open the envelope, read it, and answer the questions with an orthodox Biblical perspective, realize that she is being solicited as a potential concubine candidate by some so-far anonymous man, and considers herself thus-far-available to cautiously follow up accordingly, she herself can then engage in parking-lot reconnaissance then or very soon thereafter and commence surveillance of her own as to who apparently owns a vehicle with that aforementioned alpha-numeric ID (such as " . . . XVF).
If, then when, she discovers the vehicle, observes who the man is who gets inside that vehicle, and decides to proceed to ascertain more about him, she can then, very soon, place her completely-filled-in <http://summerclothes.tripod.com/mateprep.htm copy along with a blank copy of this website-obtained http://summerclothes.tripod.com/mateprep.htm inside an envelope upon which she has imprinted her complete six-character (or whatever) license-plate ID, and (without been spotted or interfered with by any parking-lot security guard) put that under the windshield wiper (or slightly-opened driver's-side window) of the targeted man's vehicle.
When the older man sees her envelope under on or within his vehicle, he (as soon as possible) fills it out with Scripturally-congruent answers, places it along with a blank http://summerclothes.tripod.com/mateexam.htm inside an envelope on which he has imprinted his complete six-character (or whatever) license-plate ID, and places it under her vehicle's windshield wiper or through the slightly-opened driver's side window of her vehicle.
When the teen-or-older woman (neither "minor" nor "major") discovers that, opens the envelope, reads his http://summerclothes.tripod.com/mateprep.htm answers, and observes the detailed personal questions in the http://summerclothes.tripod.com/mateexam.htm, she should promptly take one of two options:
(1) observe when the who owns his license-plate-ID'd vehicle is about to get into his vehicle, walk over to that man, and ask him to let her into his vehicle so she can acknowledge his careful, friendly, polite, honorable, and discreet solicitation for her, then discuss possible answers with her to the http://summerclothes.tripod.com/mateprep.htm Questionnaire he put on or in her vehicle, or
(2) walk over (as soon as possible) to the man's vehicle and place under his windshield or through his slightly-opened window onto his driver's seat an envelope on which is imprinted her full license-plate ID, within which envelope she has written a note stating: "After prayerful consideration, the Spirit of my Savior has convinced me that, in my case regarding your understandable and appreciated solicitation for me indicated by that http://summerclothes.tripod.com/mateprep.htm and http://summerclothes.tripod.com/mateexam.htm, the essence of Ruth chapter 4, especially verse 6, is somewhat applicable. May Christ Jesus bless you with eventual success."
Purchase of then consistently wearing (when in public) a "friendship" or "purity" ring on the 4th finger of the left hand of the concubine-to-be is optional and perhaps recommended so she is not solicited by any other man.
What is alluded to in . . .
Genesis 26:6 So Isaac lived in Gerar.
7 When the men of the place asked him about his wife, he said, "She is my sister"; for he feared to say, "My wife," thinking, "lest the men of the place should kill me for the sake of Rebekah"; because she was beautiful to look upon.
8 When he had been there a long time, Abimelech king of the Philistines looked out of a window and saw Isaac fondling Rebekah his wife.
9 So Abimelech called Isaac, and said, "Hey, she is your wife; how then could you say, 'She is my sister'?" Isaac said to him, "Because I thought, 'Lest I die because of her.'"
10 Abimelech said, "What is this you have done to us? One of the people might easily have lain with your wife, and you would have brought guilt upon us."
11 So Abimelech warned all the people, saying, "Whoever touches this man or his wife shall be put to death."
. . . and:
Leviticus 15:18 If a man lies with a woman and has an emission of semen, both of them shall bathe themselves in water, and be unclean until the evening.
. . . and:
Judges 21:19 So they said, "Hey, there is the yearly feast of the LORD at Shiloh, which is north of Bethel, on the east of the highway that goes up from Bethel to Shechem, and south of Lebonah."
20 And they commanded the Benjaminites, saying, "Go and lie in wait in the vineyards,
21 and watch; if the daughters of Shiloh come out to dance in the dances, then come out of the vineyards and seize each man his wife from the daughters of Shiloh, and go to the land of Benjamin.
22 And when their fathers or their brothers come to complain to us, we will say to them, 'Grant them graciously to us; because we did not take for each man of them his wife in battle, neither did you give them to them, else you would now be guilty.'"
23 And the Benjaminites did so, and took their wives, according to their number, from the dancers whom they carried off; then they went and returned to their inheritance, and rebuilt the towns, and dwelt in them.
. . . and:
Song of Solomon 1:2 Oh that you would kiss me with the kisses of your mouth! For your love is better than wine,
4:16 Awake, north wind, and come, south wind! Blow upon my garden, let its fragrance be wafted abroad. Let my beloved come to his garden, and eat its choicest fruits.
7:7 You are stately [ have good posture? ] as a palm tree, and your breasts are like its clusters.
7:8 I say I will climb the palm tree and lay hold of its branches. Oh, may your breasts be like clusters of the vine, and the scent of your breath like apples,
8:1 Oh that you were like a brother to me, that nursed at my mother's breast! If I met you outside, I would kiss you, and none would despise me.
. . . and:
Ezekiel 16:36 Thus says the Lord GOD, "Because your shame was laid bare and your nakedness uncovered in your harlotries with your lovers, and because of all your idols, and because of the [abortion-homicide? ] blood of your children that you gave to them,
16:37 therefore, hey, I will gather all your lovers, with whom you took pleasure, all those you loved and all those you loathed; I will gather them against you from every side, and will uncover your nakedness to them, that they may see all your nakedness.
23:3 they played the harlot in Egypt; they played the harlot in their youth; there their breasts were pressed and their virgin nipples squeezed.
23:20 and doted upon her paramours there, whose members were like those of donkeys, and whose issue was like that of horses.
. . . and more after the couple has mutually signed both copies of the <http://summerclothes.tripod.com/matecert.htm can discreetly (and inexpensively!) occur within some remote-enough latchable outdoor biffy or even a lockable unisex family restroom within a church or shopping center, inside a windowless van, secluded storage unit, etc.
There are many factors involved in making onesself available as a concubine candidate, actually becoming a concubine, searching for a suitable concubine to acquire and possess, and actually soliciting and accepting a teen-or-older eligible as one's privately-owned, chaste-and-faithful, personal concubine.
One of those things to take into consideration is parental reaction, or that of brothers and sisters and other kinfolk who might initially misunderstand and somewhat persecute the concubine and her marital male partner they have no ownership of and no legal right to stalk, harass, detain, nor report to law-enforcement officers. There is also the possibility of experiencing disdain of accusatory employers and friends concocting questionable-reputation gossip and prejudicially initiating disassociative segregation, and so on. Another thing is potential production and management of birthed children relating to identification, schooling, and relation of those children to the State and its social-worker agencies.
However, it is not unheard of nowadays for children to reside in one-parent homes, such as those wherein a widow or widower resides, or a non-remarried divorced parent. Frequently, even welfare benefits for housing and food are given to such people.
It is also not unusual for particularly a cohabitational woman not legally married to some man to continue to identify herself with her maiden name, and even for a divorced woman to resort back to her maiden name, or have a legally-registered hyphenated last name or non-registered nickname or alias. Thus, a concubine can identify herself with her original first name, her not-legally-married husband's name as her middle name, and her original maiden last name . . . and tell the State to regard her as a 'single' person "in a complicated permanent relationship."
A concubine is not an adulterizing nor fornicating "mistress," nor a prostitute nor whore nor slut nor harlot. She is not "having an affair" but is instead is respectably forever cemented into in a lower-status-than-legal-wife permanent marital relationship with an honorable already-happily-married-with-someone-else man, who might or might not convey or disclose (as much as possible) to his primary wife the existence of his possibly-covert concubine.
Such certainly is preferable to secretly adulterizing or fornicating or sodomizing or funding masseuse/escort prostitutes, or lusting at covertly-obtained-and-retained pornography of all types. And I won't even further consider same-gender pseudo-"marriage" lust-not-love homosodomizing of homoqueers.
A true and genuine Christian is one who has non-conditionally and totally surrendered to their Lord and Master Jesus Christ, believes and professes that He expects and requires perfect 24/7 obedience to all of His moral laws without qualifications, and if they do not so accommodate and comply they will burn in Hell forever, and consequentially they fear, respect, and love their Creator Him without forced coercion with the own free will, rightly considering Him "the only game in town."
In stark contrast, a pseudo-"christian" neither believes nor declares that God non-conditionally demands absolute perfection and 24/7 obedience by and from them without any qualifications. The atoning sacrifice of Christ on a cross does not and never will apply to such who claim the grace of God but actually use it as an license-to-sin excuse to commit a little evil now and then because of their worship-themselves-as-god non-willingness to give up every one of their idols of whatever types and their compromising refusal to displease their demonic worldly friends in their lying self-deceived and self-deluded, cross-of-Christ-despising, egotistical-self-esteem self-importance and anti-authority rebelliousness.
