A second wife is dependent upon law to justify her remarriage and she will oppose anyone that disagrees. King Herod was an example. He sent John the Baptist to prison “for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife: for he had married her.” John had told Herod, “It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother’s wife.” (Mark:17-18) On Herod’s birthday, Herodias’ daughter danced for him and pleased him. He promised her anything that she wanted . She went to her wicked mother and said, “What shall I ask?” And she said, “The head of John the Baptist.”
