Every man has a family tree. That tree is based upon the women that he has loved and the women with whom he has laid. Even though Jacob laid with Leah before Rachel, Rachel is the one that he loved and pledged to make his wife. She was his first true love. Furthermore, the children of a man’s first wife are the cornerstone of his family. It does not matter if he has children with his second wife that are older. The children of the first wife always come first before the children of the second wife. Go to Wikipedia.com and look at “Abraham’s family tree”. Then try to draw your own family tree.
