Married Only Once

This past weekend I was looking at the NRSV and
noticed that MIAS GUNAIKOS ANDRA in 1 Tim 3:2
was translated "married only once", which suggests
the meaning "one marriage for a life time" instead of
"one marriage at a time".

That Paul taught the permissability of more than one

        "A wife is bound as long as her husband lives;
        but if her husband is dead, she is free to be
        married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord."
        -1 Cor 7:39

is obvious. But was the requirement to be a bishop more
strict in that he was to be a MIAS GUNAIKOS ANDRA ?
