Of Plurality of Wives

We must now consider the plurality of wives. Under this head there are five points of inquiry:

  1. Whether it is against the natural law to have several wives?
  2. Whether this was ever lawful?
  3. Whether it is against the natural law to have a concubine?
  4. Whether it is a mortal sin to have intercourse with a concubine?
  5. Whether it was ever lawful to have a concubine?
