Finding a Wife, Old Testament Style

This is pretty funny: Top 15 Biblical Way to Acquire a Wife
My favorites:
– Find an attractive prisoner of war, bring her home, shave her head, trim her nails, and give her new clothes. Then she’s yours.
(Deuteronomy 21:11-13)
– Find a man with seven daughters, and impress him by watering his flock.
Moses (Exodus 2:16-21)
– Cut off 200 foreskins off of your future father-in-law’s enemies and get his daughter for a wife.
David (I Samuel 18:27)
– Become the emperor of a huge nation and hold a beauty contest.
Xerxes or Ahasuerus (Esther 2:3-4)
And I’m sure my pal T would agree:
– Don’t be so picky. Make up for quality with quantity.
Solomon (1 Kings 11:1-3)
