However, the principles underlying the teaching of the husband of one wife qualification can simplify the understanding of the meaning. Where such information?

My husband uses this scripture to mean that a pastor, deacon or any other head of a church must be a male. I personally interpret the husband of one wife to mean that he should only have one wife. This is because the days before Christ it was common for gentiles (not sure about Jews) to have more than one wife at a time.

Thank you Ingrid. I agree. Scriputre, in the Old Testament, forbid the taking of more than one wife, but many did, but the verse you refer to about deacons/pastors or church leader may also mean he is to be faithful to his wife, but I do see that this should also mean that he should not take more than one wife, so I think you are right.
