Bible: Deuteronomy 21:10-13

Laws Concerning Wives

21:10 When you go out to do battle with your enemies and the Lord your God allows you to prevail 1  and you take prisoners, 21:11 if you should see among them 2  an attractive woman whom you wish to take as a wife, 21:12 you may bring her back to your house. She must shave her head, 3  trim her nails, 21:13 discard the clothing she was wearing when captured, 4  and stay 5  in your house, lamenting for her father and mother for a full month. After that you may have sexual relations 6  with her and become her husband and she your wife.
