Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
γαμέω gaméō, gam-eh'-o; from G1062; to wed (of either sex):—marry (a wife).
γαμέω, -ῶ; imperfect ἐγάμουν (Luke 17:27); 1 aorist ἔγημα (the classic form [Matthew 22:25 L T Tr WH]; Luke 14:20; 1 Corinthians 7:28a R G, 28b) and ἐγάμησα (the later form, Matthew 5:32; [Matthew 22:25 R G]; Mark 6:17; Mark 10:11; 1 Corinthians 7:9, (1 Corinthians 7:28a L T Tr WH], 33); perfect γεγάμηκα; 1 aorist passive ἐγαμήθην; (cf. Winers Grammar, 84 (80); Buttmann, 55 (48); Bttm. Ausf. Spr. ii. 134; Lob. ad Phryn., p. 742; [Veitch, under the word]);
1. used of the man, as in Greek writings from Homer down, to lead in marriage, take to wife;
a. with the addition of γυναῖκα or other accusative: Matthew 5:32 [here WH brackets the clause]; Matthew 19:9; Mark 6:17; Mark 10:11; Luke 14:20; Luke 16:18.
b. without a case, absolutely to get married, to marry, [cf. Buttmann, 145 (127)]: Matthew 19:10; Matthew 22:25, 30; Matthew 24:38; Mark 12:25; Luke 17:27; Luke 20:34; 1 Corinthians 7:28, 33; (Aelian v. h. 4, 1; οἱ γεγαμηκότες, Xenophon, Cyril 1, 2, 4; opposed to ἄγαμοι, Xenophon, symp. 9, 7). Passive and middle γαμέομαί τινι, of women [Latin nubere alicui, cf. Buttmann, § 133, 8], to give oneself in marriage [Winer's Grammar, § 38, 3]: 1 aorist passive, Mark 10:12 (where L T Tr WH γαμήσῃ ἄλλον for R G γαμηθῇ ἄλλῳ); 1 Corinthians 7:39.
2. contrary to Greek usage, the active γαμεῖν is used of women, to give oneself in marriage; and
