-Are many partners ok? After all David and many other Old Testament characters like Jacob, had wives and concubines? And Abraham had sex with his wife's maid?

God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve, not Eve and Evelyn, not Adam, Eve and Emily -Ecclesiastes 7:29. Having more than one sexual partner at a time shows immaturity, selfishness, and a lack of really what to look for in a partner, as well as showing that one is willing to enter into consecutive frivolous relationships without a heart for the commitment required between a couple for the permanent foundation necessary to progress in intimacy.
    Never enter into a sexual relationship unless you are sure that this is the one that you want to live with all your life, the one that you can solidly make a commitment to. If it doesn't work out that way; if the relationship becomes untenable; if there seems to be just no way for the relationship to progress, then feel free to move on
    Because they didn't have the heart in them to have a proper relationship (Deuteronomy 5:29; Matthew 19:8) and because God now changed all that (Hebrews 8:10; Ephesians 5:25), why would you want more than one relationship? Not only would it take too much time away from spiritual concerns, but two or more women constantly together in the same house can have problems. Jacob found this out
    Paul's recommendation as to who should be taken into the traveling group was -1Timothy 5:9. Of course some women, and men, just always have to have someone for sex in their lives. When there was great distress upon the church due to persecutions back in Paul's time, Paul had this to say -1Corinthians 7:7,8
    Paul was divorced or widowed at this time. He was earlier, before his conversion, many scholars believe, a member of the high ranking Jewish Sanhedrin (2Corinthians 11:22) (the supreme judicial and administrative council of the Jews) and was taught by Gamaliel (Acts 5:34; 22:3) and see-Josephus-(for history, at your library, free on the Internet, and at Christian Book stores), an extremely legalistic sect of Pharisees with strict adherence to Old Testament practices which they thought they understood. God took Paul out of all this (Acts 9:1-20) as he was so sure that he was right and that Christians were wrong when it came to religion, that he would even travel to different cities to haul Christians away to be put to death. As a member of the Sanhedrin, a requirement was that one be married. With the same fervor with which he was in error, Paul now served God -2Corinthians 11:23-30; 1Corinthians 10:33.-...continues
