According to the Bible, is it a sin to marry someone who is not a virgin?
For the purpose of this question, lets exclude dealing with the following scenarios:
- the special cases of somebody not being a virgin due to the death of their spouse.
- the practical difficulty of being able to figure out if somebody is a virgin. (See Hymenorrhaphy)
- the practical difficulties of meeting people who avoid premartial sex in this modern age.
I'd like to hear answers that present a Biblical basis for whether or not the act itself is a sin rather than anything from modern cultural perspective.
