Deuteronomy 17:17 --Neither shall he multiply wives for himself, lest his heart turn away; nor shall he greatly multiply silver and gold for himself.”

Since Scripture states the reason for this commandment, lest his heart turn away,* the Sages infer that “he may not marry even one who would turn away his heart.”**

* Deuteronomy 17:17
** Sanh. 21a; Shoftim, Hilchoth Melachim III, 6
