Impracticality of that Concept

Reader comment on item: Study the Koran?
in response to reader comment: Someone please educate me on Surah AR-rahman of Quran

Of the many incomprehensible aspects of studying the Quran (and for the record, not all avenues of comprehending the Quran are beneficial to students of Western morays), the one that rises to the surface of such perceptions is the issue of promoting as a reward, the questionable promise of companionship by a chaste female. Is this not an unsustainable relationship that by its very premise, does not last? It cannot function in an eternal state.
This was not properly absorbed from the Quranic understanding of the teaching of Messiah; and man and woman (a chaste maiden) are joined; then once joined, are mates for life, temporary in that when one of the mates dies, the remaining mate is set free and is available to mate again, if the other factors are favorable. Innocence in being chaste in the mortal sense cannot be presumed, now can it? Someone ratify this notion, or can they?
