      Under the Law aman would marry his deceased brother’s sonless widow in order to produce offspring to carry on the brother’sline. (Genesis 38:8) (Deuteronomy 25:5-7) The woman was not to become a strange mans’ wife from outside thefamily. When the brother in law took her, the first-born would bear the name of the deceased man. A well-knownexample of brother-in-law marriage in the Bible is themarriage of Ruth to Boaz as recorded in the book of Ruth. Jehovah blessed this arrangement, for they gave birth to Obed who was the father of David in the directlineage of Jesus Christ. (Ruth 4)
