    A 100% paralyzed person living for more than a few seconds was way beyond the imagination of anyone in Bible times. Trying to develop a theology to encompass this physical condition (as mentioned in a closed thread) makes as much sense as a Biblical theology of space aliens.

    Except quadrepligics are human beings with full rights just like any other human and fit into Biblical theology.

    But there were those who were paralyzed in the Bible. Were they able to fulfill marital duties? We don't know but it's possible the answer is no.
