3. Yes, but so is gossip and breaking the sabbath and making blended fabrics.
Oh, and killing. And several hundred more things.

And we recognize the marriages of people who do those things. We even recognize the marriages of killers on death row.

BTW, to add to your list: Sarai, Abraham's wife, was his half sister. And, I cannot swear to this next bit, but I seem to recall something about his introducing her to some ruler who fancied her as his sister, rather than his wife, because he feared the ruler's wrath.

As far as concubines, Abraham and Sarah agreed that Abraham should sire children with Hagar, Sarah's maid.

And, as far as Lot, he was ready to let a mob from Sodom gang bang his young daughters, in order to protect the two strangers (supposedly angels) from that fate.
