Daily Bible Study
They've condensed it (obviously, this isn't 8 verses) and skewed it just a bit. . What the passage says is that if a man marries, and hates his wife, he can claim she isn't/wasn't a virgin. If the bride's father can prove she is/was, then the husband is stuck with her. If her father can't prove it, then the people are to stone her to death. . It's interesting where the burden of proof lies. Gotta love the Mosaic Law.
