IS B. SMITH'S HUSBAND RIGHT OR WRONG EVEN IF HE KEEPS HIS WEDDING VOWS

Barbara Smith, better known as B. Smith, restaurateur, model, interior designer, author, chef, and businesswoman who was diagnosed with Alzheimers husband is dating and sharing their house with the girlfriend, and fans are not happy about it. B. and her husband Dan have been married for 26 years, Smith revealed her diagnosis of early-onset Alzheimer's disease in 2014, saying that in the years before she was diagnosed she noticed she was repeating herself and forgetting things.

Alex Lerner the girlfriend has a room in the house Dan Gasby and Smith share, and she has begun to take care of Smith. "This is not a man cheating on his wife," Lerner said in the profile. "What I admire about him is that he takes care of her."

Is this relationship wrong meaning he is still married with a live-in girlfriend. You have to look at the situation biblically and socially to weigh the situation appropriately.

First, is it a sin? According to the Old Testament, no. The (OT) has no prohibitions against polygamy. And if the girlfriend is not married there is no case for adultery. In the New Testament Paul is the only one speaking about having one wife and that is the rule only for a bishop, Titus 1:6 If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly. Socially or according to civil law Dan Gasby, B. Smith's husband could not marry this woman while B. is still alive, but once again there is no prohibition in having a live-in girlfriend. The Bible condones polygamy moreso than prohibiting it otherwise many of Jehovah's leading biblical men like David and Moses would have been living in sin. Dan Gasby is keeping the wedding vows, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death do us part. Does it seem wrong...yes, but if there is no consciousness of guilt it is not. What society thinks about it doesn't make it wrong. The open ended question is, what does B. Smith thinks about it on an uncloudy day. Secondary what does God think about it. And it seems to not be a concern with either.
