Historically accurate

One fo the gubernatorial candidates this year made a foolish statement that one man one woman was the historically accurate marriage pattern. It shows he doesn't know history and doesn't know the Bible. There's more than a couple of stories from the Old Testament about patriarchs having more than one wife or also having children with the servants. In fact one of the ancestors of Jesus was called righteous by her father-in-law after she dressed up as a prostitute and seduced him. I could go on with more examples but Dipatches from the Culture Wars does a better job.
