The Law of Moses permitted polygamy, and even having concubines (women who were live in "lovers" who had only some of the same rights as proper wives). After Sampson was displeased with his wife's betrayal, he gave her away to a companion of his (Judges 14:20). Women were taken to wife as war spoils, and if a woman was raped or seduced, the man who did this to her was forced to pay her father for damages, marry her, and was never allowed to divorce her.

Women were property. For this reason, polyandry wasn't practiced among the Hebrews.

No doubt though, prostitutes and loose women had multiple suitors . However, this wasn't culturally acceptable.

This article might help your understanding:
