I suppose if Lot chose to not tell his daughters that he had asked God to let him escape to the little town of Zoar, and God had agreed so that it was clear God wasn't destroying the whole of mankind save them. And allowed his daughters to have this horrible feeling that everyone else was gone though he knew that wasn't true. Lot feared going to Zoar, though he was the one to ask God to allow it.I think he is referring to how God designed sex between a man and a woman back in the garden which is within the context of marriage and procreation.
Speaking of Lot and his daughters, consider this. Noah was alive when Lot was a kid. No doubt he and Abram heard the account of the flood first hand from Noah. Imagine for a moment God destroys an entire city and only three people are left. I don't believe it's a stretch to think Lots daughters believed they were the last three people on earth. Just as 8 people populated the earth, why not 3? After all, Lot did offer his daughters to the mob.
When we look at Tamar, the situation wasn't ideal, but similar to Lots daughters, it was for procreation, not pleasure or monetary gain.
So what passages of scripture actually say that in odd cases like this that God recognizes marriages of people who really didn't have the true commitment and acceptable right to one another His word describes?
