Why did Satyavati and Parashara have a child out of wedlock? Why did she then marry Shantanu?

Based on this, does it mean pre-martial relationship is fair? Was their relationship really bodily, because he was a great sage how could he lust someone?

    Does this answer your question? What's the view of Hinduism on prostitution and premarital sex? Jan 20, 2021 at 15:42

    These incidents in Mahabharat do not involve normal human beings. Can you imagine any common man/woman having sex, and a child being born that is instantly 16 years old (Vyasa), or born with an armor and earrings (Karna) ? You have to stop seeing the acts of Avataras through human eyes/mind.

  • No I'm not seeing it through human eyes, but those women were humans and they were married to a human.

  • So sathyavathi and Kunti mata were not human's. But they were married to a human later, what about that. I'm not thinking bad things about them, but I feel like are those people who stands against dharma having a point. If I'm wrong please correct me.
