Does the Bible give specifications and then someone has to marry? Like it is good that a 40-year old to get married first IF of 40?
There is no age at which a person should marry. Nor is a person forced to marry. Both Jesus Paul spoke of being alone as a virtue (or call) if you give yourself full time to God instead of a family. Nothing in the Bible speaks against one married for 40 years first time.
Bible Marriage Age
King Solomon in the Bible is not King Solomon in the Qur'an
King Solomon in the Bible:
His Father: David King
His mother, Bathsheba (She and David committed adultery before marriage!).
His elevation to the throne took place before the death of his father, and acceleration to all by Nathan and Bathsheba, following the rebellion of Adonijah (1 Kings 1:5-40).
Nathan, his teacher called him "beloved by the Lord"
During his long reign of forty years of the monarchy gained its greatest splendor. It manages the affairs of his vast empire, has entered into an alliance with Egypt by marrying the daughter of Pharaoh (1 Kings 3:1). He was surrounded by all the luxury and grandeur of a foreign monarch of the East, and his government prospered. It entered into an alliance with Hiram, king of Tyre, who many ways helped a lot in his many businesses.
After completion of the temple, Solomon engaged in the construction of many important buildings in Jerusalem and other parts of his kingdom.
Solomon also constructed major works and many buildings allover importance of his kingdom.
His fame spread abroad through all lands, and men came from far and near "to hear the wisdom of Solomon." Meanwhile, others attracted to hear the wisdom was the Queen of Sheba, in Yemen today. It was full of wonder at everything he saw and heard.
The "Golden Age" of his kingdom:
During his reign Palestine enjoyed great commercial prosperity. Extensive traffic was conducted by land with Tyre and Egypt and Arabia, and by sea with Spain and India and the coasts of Africa, whereby Solomon accumulated vast stores of wealth and property of all nations (1 Kings 9:26-28, 10:11, 12; 2 Chronicles 8:17, 18, 9.: 21). This was the age gold "of his kingdom.
Its decline and fall:
The first half of his reign was, however, by far the brighter and more prosperous, the second half was clouded by the idolatries into which he fell, mostly pagan marriage (1 Kings 11:1-8, 14:21, 31).
The golden age of his reign, died and the bright day of Solomon's glory ended in clouds and darkness.
He had seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines, an evidence at once of his pride, his wealth, and sensuality.
Its decline and fall its high estate is a sad record. Among the main causes of their decline were his polygamy and his great wealth.
The idle king living among these idle women, for 1,000 women, with all its attendant rest and playful, full of palaces and houses of pleasure he had built (1 Kings 11:3), learned first to tolerate, then to imitate their pagan ways. He did not actually stop believing in God with his mind. He did not fail to offer the usual sacrifices in the temple festivals. But his heart was not right with God, his worship became merely formal in his soul vacuum left by the disappearance of the true religious fervor,
This brought upon him the wrath of God.
Books of Solomon
The traditional view is that Solomon had written two books, and both are the product of the pen of Solomon.
They are the Song of Songs (Song of Songs) and Ecclesiastes, which means "Preacher."
Both books are contradictory.
The song is the book of love and sex, waiting for the beloved, the lover kisses, lips, legs, thighs, chest of beloved, etc.
In addition, Ecclesiastes is The book "Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities, all is vanity!"
King Solomon in the Qur'an:
The difference between the stories of King Solomon in the Bible cons Quran is very large.
The most important questions are:
1] Solomon was a prophet in the Koran, but not in the Bible
2] Solomon has never been in the Koran idolatrous
3] Their languages, the hosts, Spain and the latter, the castle in the Qur'an are unique, but not in the Bible
4] The power to control the wind and the devils are in the Koran, but not in the Bible.
5] was devoted God and everything possible to spread the religion of the Lord.
6] The Koran does not mention his 1000 women!

Not in the Bible, but in the Quran (22), King Solomon had spread the religion of the Lord?
There must be a hidden reason (s) why the Bible dishonors King Solomon. Moreover, the Quran clearly states his innocence.
Presumably the Bible writers Solomon hated a lot, but why and how? This will be discussed in the next section.
Back to the main issue of my series of articles is my question to you smart readers: "The Koran is quoted in the Bible?"
Indeed, the ignorant Arabs said they believed that the Quran cites the Bible more than 1400 years! (Read my article on Chapter 25).
