Who Can a Noahide Marry?

Updated: Jan 16

Daily Study of the Noahide Code of Laws

Today: Pages 404 - 405

Topic Chapter 1:6 - 1:9

The Torah Law itself did not forbid a Gentile man from marrying his daughter, but this has been rejected from Biblical times as a disgusting practice.

If a Gentile man divorces his wife or she dies, he may then marry her daughter from another man. In fact, a Gentile man (who is permitted within Torah Law to have multiple wives) may be married to a woman and her daughter (his step-daughter) at the same time, but it is an abomination.

Within Torah Law, a Gentile man may be married to a woman and her grand daughter (from her daughter or from her son).
