To your answer below, you might want to add the apostle Paul. Did he not
tell the Corinthians that "I say to the unmarried and to the widows, that
it is good for them to remain as I am"? (1 Cor. 7:8-9) And, isn't the
implication here (picked up by the translators of the RSV, NRSV, and NIV)
that Paul was unmarried? In other words, if singleness keeps you from
overseeing a church, then the foremost church planter of the 1st century
would be ruled out, no?
