quite a few debates on polygamy and adultery
Such as Jacob wanting to marry Rachel, but her father pulls a switcheroo at the wedding and tricks him into marrying the older sister Leah!
Then Jacob has to work and wait 7 more years to marry his true love Rachel.
In some kind of competition to have children, both wives recruit and press their “maid servants” to the cause. Bilah in the case of Rachel, and Zilpah in the case of Leah. And if they’re even partially indentured servants, not so cool. I mean, on non-abuse grounds and all.
And this is family values ! ? !
Or if religious conservatives are talking about the “Biblical principle” of one man and one woman, they’re not talking about this family!
And unlikely but not impossible that they had 12 sons and only one daughter. More likely, this is just an example of a patriarchal culture ignoring the daughters unless they’re directly involved and mentioned in a story.
