Wisdom's Delight in Marriage Love: Followed by Insanity’s Pleasure in Promiscuous Love 332
332. POLYGAMY If investigation is made into the reason why polygamous marriages are wholly banned from the Christian world [it will be found that], by no one, howsoever endowed with the gift of genius in acutely searching into matters, can that reason be seen as in clear day, unless he has first been instructed THAT THERE IS A LOVE TRULY CONJUGIAL; THAT THIS LOVE IS NOT POSSIBLE EXCEPT BETWE...

336. III. THAT NONE OF THESE CAN BE GIVEN EXCEPT BY THE LORD ALONE; AND THAT THEY ARE GIVEN TO NO OTHERS SAVE THOSE WHO APPROACH HIM ALONE AND LIVE ACCORDING TO HIS PRECEPTS. This has been shown above in many places; to which it must be added that all these things, blessed, happy, and delightful, can be granted only by the Lord, and that therefore no other is to be approached. Who else is there? s...

339. VI. THAT A CHRISTIAN, IF HE MARRIES MORE WIVES THAN ONE, COMMITS NOT ONLY NATURAL ADULTERY BUT ALSO SPIRITUAL ADULTERY. That a Christian who marries more wives than one commits natural adultery is according to the Lord's words, namely, that it is not lawful to put away a wife, because from the beginning they were created to be one flesh; and that he who shall put away his wife without just ca...

340. VII. THAT FOR THE ISRAELITISH NATION IT WAS PERMITTED TO MARRY MORE WIVES THAN ONE BECAUSE WITH THAT NATION THERE WAS NO CHRISTIAN CHURCH, AND HENCE NO POSSIBILITY OF LOVE TRULY CONJUGIAL. At this day there are men who entertain ambiguous thoughts respecting the institution of monogamous marriages, that is, of the marriage of one man with one wife, debating within themselves concerning the re...

346. XI. THAT WITH POLYGAMISTS CONJUGIAL CHASTITY,PURITY, AND HOLINESS ARE NOT POSSIBLE. This follows from what was confirmed just above, and manifestly from what was shown in the chapter on The Chaste and the Non-Chaste, especially from the following there: That what is chaste, pure, and holy is predicated only of monogamous marriages or those of one man with one wife (no. 141); that love truly c...

369. VIII. THAT JEALOUSY IS SPIRITUAL WITH MONOGAMISTS,AND NATURAL WITH POLYGAMISTS. That jealousy is spiritual with monogamists is because they alone can receive spiritual conjugial love, as abundantly shown above. It is said there is spiritual jealousy with monogamists, but what is meant is that it is possible; for in the Christian world, where marriages are monogamous, it exists with very few....

376. XI. THAT WITH SOME THERE IS NO JEALOUSY, AND THIS ALSO FROM VARIOUS CAUSES. There are many causes of an absence of jealousy and of a cessation of jealousy. Those especially have no jealousy who make conjugial love to be of no more account than scortatory love, and who at the same time are inglorious, counting a good reputation as of no value. They are not unlike married pimps. Those also have...

425. II. THAT SCORTATORY LOVE IS THE OPPOSITE TO CONJUGIAL LOVE. There is nothing in the universe which has not its opposite; and opposites are not relative to each other but contrary. Relatives are things between the greatest and least of the same thing, While contraries lie over against them from the opposite side, being relatives with respect to each other just as are the former relatives; ther...

444. To the above shall be added the following Memorable Relation: After I had finished my meditations on conjugial love and had commenced the meditations on scortatory love, suddenly two angels stood by me and said, "We perceived and understood what you were previously meditating on, but the things on which you are now meditating are beyond us and we do not perceive them. Lay them...

453. VIII. THAT THE LUST OF FORNICATING IS GRIEVOUS SO FAR AS IT LOOKS TO ADULTERY. All those in the lust of fornication look to adultery who do not believe adulteries to be sins and think the same of marriages as of adulteries, with the sole distinction of lawful and unlawful. Such men make one evil out of all evils; they mingle them together, like filth with edible foods in one dish and offscour...

477. To the above shall be added the following Memorable Relation: I heard a certain spirit, a young man recently from the world, boasting of his whoredoms and eager to catch laudation as being masculine above other men. Among the extravagances of his boasting, he poured forth this: "What is more dismal than to imprison one's love and to live with one woman alone? and what more del...

478. ADULTERIES AND THEIR KINDS AND DEGREES No one can know that there is any evil in adultery if he judges of it merely from external appearances, for in these it is like marriage. When internals are mentioned and they are told that it is from these that external appearances draw their good or their evil, these external judges say within themselves: "What are internals? Who can see the...

479. I. THAT THERE ARE THREE KINDS OF ADULTERIES SIMPLE, DOUBLE, AND TRIPLE. The Creator of the universe has distinguished each and every thing which He created into genera or kinds, and each kind into species. He has likewise distinguished each species and each distinction of the species, and so on, and this to the end that an image of the infinite may exist in a perpetual variety of qualities. T...

481. That more may be learned as to the nature of the grossness of the present age where wise men see nothing of sin in adultery, as disclosed above (no. 478) by angels, I will add the following Memorable Relation: There were certain spirits who, from habit acquired in the life of the body, infested me with peculiar skill. They did this by an influx somewhat gentle like a kind of undula...

482. III. THAT DOUBLE ADULTERY IS THAT OF A HUSBAND WITH THE WIFE OF ANOTHER, OR THE REVERSE. It is called double adultery because committed by two, the marriage covenant being violated by both. It is therefore twofold more grievous than the former. It was said above (no. 480), that after the pact and covenant, the conjugial love of one man with one wife unites their souls; that this union is the...

491. XI. THAT ADULTERIES COMMITTED BY THESE ARE GRIEVOUS [AND ARE IMPUTED] ACCORDING TO THE CONFIRMATIONS. The understanding alone confirms, and when it confirms, it makes an ally of the will and stations it round about itself, and so drives it to compliance. Confirmations are effected by reasonings which the mind takes from either its higher region or its lower; if from its higher region which co...

500. To the above I will add the following Memorable Relation: Once, in the world of spirits, I heard a great tumult. It was from thousands of men gathered together and crying out, "Punish them! Punish them!" Going nearer, I asked, "What is the matter?" and one who stood apart from that great gathering told me they were in the burning heat of anger against three prie...

518. In the preceding pages, when treating of the marriage of the Lord and the Church (nos. 116 seq.) and the marriage of good and truth (nos. 83 seq.), it was demonstrated that the former marriage corresponds to marriages on earth. From this it follows that the violation of it corresponds to whoredoms and adulteries. That such is the case is manifestly evident from the Word itself, in that by who...

521. To the above shall be added the following Memorable Relation: My sight being opened, I saw a dark forest and in it a crowd of satyrs. As to their breasts these satyrs were hairy; as to their feet, some were like calves, some like panthers, and some like wolves, and on their feet, instead of toes, were the claws of wild beasts. They were running about like wild beasts and calling ou...

531. VI. THAT IN THE SAME WAY CONJUGIAL LOVE IS IMPUTED TO EACH MAN. There are marriages in which there is no appearance of conjugial love, and yet it is there, and there are marriages in which there is an appearance of conjugial love, and yet it is not there. The reasons in both cases are many and can be learned in part from what has been treated of in the chapters on Love truly Conjugial (nos. 5...
