Non-marital sex vs. living together
#3
Director Michael Wrote:The relevant verse in the Torah states (Genesis 2:24):

"Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and cling to his wife, and they shall become one flesh."

This means that the "clinging" by a man which the verse refers to (which is sexual intercourse) should be with "his wife." In the Torah context for Gentiles, "his wife" means a woman who dedicates herself to establish her home with the man (whether or not he resides in this home of his full-time), for the purpose of a publicly known marriage relationship between them (whether or not there are any secular legal documents filed).

By reading the above information, it would appear that a monogamous relationship is then permitted even if there is no formal marriage?
