Wherever context allows, we will not use the English title “wife” as it is not found in either the Hebrew or the Greek and brings to mind rights that a woman was never given by God and which destroy marriages. It will take time to go through all the articles to make these changes. In the Bible, when you read the word wife/wife’s/wives/wives’ the underlying word is simply female. Greek gyne and Hebrew ‘ishshah. Yes, the word “wife” was invented and has come to assign nonsensical privileges, even rights, not found in the Bible.

“Any historian who had truly studied first century Rome, would have read much of the Lex Papia Poppaea, the Roman marriage law which included rewards for having many children and penalties for remaining single. It’s also clear that this is why Paul defended celibacy, not to promote celibacy as a permanent state, but in reaction to certain of the regulations in the Lex Papia Poppaea. If a single man between the age of puberty and sixty was to receive an inheritance, he would lose it if he didn’t get married within one hundred and twenty days. The same applied to single women between the age of puberty and fifty. Paul simply wanted to make sure that no man would marry out of compulsion from the government but would marry only out of a compulsion from God to be fruitful and multiply. We certainly know that Paul never meant for any woman to be without a husband. He clearly stated, ‘I will, therefore, that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.'”

Admonitions

Don’t confuse age with maturity nor confidence with ability.
