Meet The Famous Person In The Bible Who Married His Sister

Marriage between brother and sister or close relatives is seen as taboo not only in African society but also in the Holy Bible. Marriage is a commitment between two lovers who are ready to spend the rest of their lives together and grow a family together. The Bible highly condemns marriage between people related by blood and below is a famous person who married his sister.

Abraham is well known in the Bible as the father of all nations. According to the book of Genesis, Abraham had two brothers and one sister namely, Nahor, Haran, and Sarah. Although Sarah and Abraham shared the same womb, they were fathered by different people. The two married each other at a time when God had not prohibited siblings from marrying one another. Moses later wrote in the book of Deuteronomy where he forbade marriages between relatives and since then it has been regarded as taboo.
