But a disturbing picture emerges from the sparse snapshot of family life as it came to develop among the Cainites. In the case of Lamech, the seventh from Adam, we see that the primal law of marriage to one woman had already been cast aside as irrelevant , Lamech was a polygamist.

So, marrying one sister was ok but two, or more was not?

That is correct. Monogamy was to be practiced. As far as marrying ones sister, that was a given being as to how the race had not progressed to the point of cousins and distant cousins. The bloodline was still pure enough to allow for it without the genetic defects in todays times.
