Yes, there are those who marry for the "dowry."  lol  To call it a shame would be a gross understatement.  After all, the Bridegroom is the gift, is He not?!

I have very high standards for a wife.  I'm looking for a Godly, Christian, 85 year old woman who is worth at least $10 million and who would like to have a week of pleasure before she died.   8)

No comment.  ;D

1 Corinthians 7
Concerning Married Life
 1 Now for the matters you wrote about: “It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman.” 2 But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband. 3 The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body but yields it to his wife. 5 Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 6 I say this as a concession, not as a command. 7 I wish that all of you were as I am. But each of you has your own gift from God; one has this gift, another has that.
 
8 Now to the unmarried[a] and the widows I say: It is good for them to stay unmarried, as I do. 9 But if they cannot control themselves, they should marry, for it is better to marry than to burn with passion.   10 To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband. 11 But if she does, she must remain unmarried or else be reconciled to her husband. And a husband must not divorce his wife.

 12 To the rest I say this (I, not the Lord): If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her. 13 And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her, she must not divorce him. 14 For the unbelieving husband has been sanctified through his wife, and the unbelieving wife has been sanctified through her believing husband. Otherwise your children would be unclean, but as it is, they are holy.

1 Cor. 7:25 Now about virgins: I have no command from the Lord, but I give a judgment as one who by the Lord’s mercy is trustworthy. 26 Because of the present crisis, I think that it is good for you to remain as you are. 27Are you married? Do not seek a divorce. Are you unmarried? Do not look for a wife. 28 But if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. But those who marry will face many troubles in this life, and I want to spare you this.

29 What I mean, brothers, is that the time is short. From now on those who have wives should live as if they had none; 30 those who mourn, as if they did not; those who are happy, as if they were not; those who buy something, as if it were not theirs to keep; 31 those who use the things of the world, as if not engrossed in them. For this world in its present form is passing away.

32 I would like you to be free from concern. An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairs—how he can please the Lord. 33 But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world—how he can please his wife— 34 and his interests are divided. An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world—how she can please her husband. 35 I am saying this for your own good, not to restrict you, but that you may live in a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord.

36 If anyone thinks he is acting improperly toward the virgin he is engaged to, and if she is getting along in years and he feels he ought to marry, he should do as he wants. He is not sinning. They should get married. 37 But the man who has settled the matter in his own mind, who is under no compulsion but has control over his own will, and who has made up his mind not to marry the virgin—this man also does the right thing. 38 So then, he who marries the virgin does right, but he who does not marry her does even better.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

Do you think YOU could survive that week of pleasure with the Godly, Christian, 85 year old woman who is worth at least $10 million? :-X
She might make you want to revisit your very high standards for a wife??!!

I might be going off topic here, but with all these verses regarding one man, one woman, why did some of the historic figures have multiple wives? I haven't really done any research on this I'll admit, but it just popped in my head.

Because of the hardness of their hearts they had multiple wives, but from the beginning God made one husband, one wife.

None of the Old Testament people will be in the 1st Resurrection.  They will come up in a resurrection to judgment where they will need to repent from their sins.

I would rather keep to "Deut 29:29 The Lord our God keeps certain things hidden. But he makes other things known to us and our children" with regard to "none...".
We know we are saved by grace through faith...
I liked this thread and its wonderful comments.

God said in Genesis: "Be fruitful and multiply".  You can do this much faster with multiple wives.  I don't know when the command was rescinded as the earth did get well populated. 
It wasn't until the New Testament (I believe) that one wife was commanded. 
 :-)   In the Old Testament life was rather SIMPLE so to add some ACTION, besides warring, "multiple wives meant multiple problems" so too today!  See Sarah and hand- maid (Abraham "stepped into" that one!!
