1.Dear Abdullah, the every commandment (do or don't) from Allah (the creator) has blessings to mankind whether we understand the essense of the order or not.Here in verse 4/23 as you refered to,might have adverse social consequencies along with genetics problems as today's medical research claims.The societies strengthen with family units,because the values less unit must have frustration , therefore all social structure may collapes.Ultimately there will be JUNGALE KA QANOON.As for as wives of prophit Mohammad (pbuh) is concerns there is nothing like that in Quran, but religious intrigues concocted these stories in AHADITH.Plz finde out the meanings of AZWAJ ANNABI in quran as Dr. qamar sahab already explained it very well. let me reproduce here under.

Dear members Assalam-o-alaikum,  
The discussion has gone too far, I thought better to put the translation of Sura Tehreem.  
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ لِمَ تُحَرِّمُ مَا أَحَلَّ اللَّهُ لَكَ تَبْتَغِي مَرْضَاةَ أَزْوَاجِكَ وَاللَّهُ غَفُورٌ رَحِيمٌ  
1. O Prophet! why do You ban that which Allâh has made lawful to you, seeking to please your companions? and Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.  
(Please note nothing is mentioned what was lawful which he forbade, so why to make stories.)  
A very important thing to note is that the مخاطب is النبی but the subject matter told is not for prophet. Nor his wives can do such a thing that their hearts have gone so astray that if they don’t turn to Allah the whole Allah’s machinery including Himself ,the community of pious Momins angels and the Quran will come and stand against them.  
(as described in verse 4 so ازواج and امراۃ are not his wife or wives but they are either his communities or his companions. The text decides accordingly.)  
This Sura is about those people who claim to be Momins but in actuality they are not (Verse 8 ). Hence words like ازواج and امراۃ are not for ladies but for the community.  
قَدْ فَرَضَ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ تَحِلَّةَ أَيْمَانِكُمْ وَاللَّهُ مَوْلاكُمْ وَهُوَ الْعَلِيمُ الْحَكِيمُ  
2. Allâh has already made compulsory the legality of your oaths. And Allâh is Your Lord, and He is the All-Knower, the All-Wise.  
وَإِذْ أَسَرَّ النَّبِيُّ إِلَى بَعْضِ أَزْوَاجِهِ حَدِيثًا فَلَمَّا نَبَّأَتْ بِهِ وَأَظْهَرَهُ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ عَرَّفَ بَعْضَهُ وَأَعْرَضَ عَنْ بَعْضٍ فَلَمَّا نَبَّأَهَا بِهِ قَالَتْ مَنْ أَنْبَأَكَ هَذَا قَالَ نَبَّأَنِيَ الْعَلِيمُ الْخَبِيرُ  
3. Remember when the Prophet disclosed a matter in confidence to one of his companion, so when he told it to another companion , and Allâh overpowered prophet over him, so that he came to know part of it . Then, when prophet inquired him thereof, he said: "Who told you this?" He said: "The All-Knower, the All-Aware has told me.”  
إِنْ تَتُوبَا إِلَى اللَّهِ فَقَدْ صَغَتْ قُلُوبُكُمَا وَإِنْ تَظَاهَرَا عَلَيْهِ فَإِنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ مَوْلاهُ وَجِبْرِيلُ وَصَالِحُ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ وَالْمَلائِكَةُ بَعْدَ ذَلِكَ ظَهِيرٌ  
4. Better if You two turn in repentance to Allâh, because your hearts have already inclined to disobedience, but if you try to overcome him then undoubtedly Allâh is his Lord , and Jibrael (the commandments), and the righteous among the peaceful and furthermore the law implementers are his helpers.  
عَسَى رَبُّهُ إِنْ طَلَّقَكُنَّ أَنْ يُبْدِلَهُ أَزْوَاجًا خَيْرًا مِنْكُنَّ مُسْلِمَاتٍ مُؤْمِنَاتٍ قَانِتَاتٍ تَائِبَاتٍ عَابِدَاتٍ سَائِحَاتٍ ثَيِّبَاتٍ وَأَبْكَارًا  
5. It may be if he broke up with you that his Lord will give him instead of you, communities better than you, Muslimatin (who establish protection), Mominatin (who provide peace ), Qanetatin (everready to obey), Ta’ibatin (those who turn to Allâh in repentance) , Aabedatin (obedient to Allâh), Sa’ihatin (provider of remedy to peoples sufferings ) Sayyebatin ( who repeatedly turn to commandments ) and Abkara (those who bring new dawn to community) .  
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا قُوا أَنْفُسَكُمْ وَأَهْلِيكُمْ نَارًا وَقُودُهَا النَّاسُ وَالْحِجَارَةُ عَلَيْهَا مَلائِكَةٌ غِلاظٌ شِدَادٌ لا يَعْصُونَ اللَّهَ مَا أَمَرَهُمْ وَيَفْعَلُونَ مَا يُؤْمَرُونَ  
6. O You the peace provider protect yourselves and your followers from the Fire whose fuel is men and stones, over which are stern and strong law implementers , who do not disobey the commands of Allâh, but obey that what they are commanded.  
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لا تَعْتَذِرُوا الْيَوْمَ إِنَّمَا تُجْزَوْنَ مَا كُنْتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ  
7. O You who disagreed, make no excuses This day! You are being rewarded only for what you used to do.  
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا تُوبُوا إِلَى اللَّهِ تَوْبَةً نَصُوحًا عَسَى رَبُّكُمْ أَنْ يُكَفِّرَ عَنْكُمْ سَيِّئَاتِكُمْ وَيُدْخِلَكُمْ جَنَّاتٍ تَجْرِي مِنْ تَحْتِهَا الأنْهَارُ يَوْمَ لا يُخْزِي اللَّهُ النَّبِيَّ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا مَعَهُ نُورُهُمْ يَسْعَى بَيْنَ أَيْدِيهِمْ وَبِأَيْمَانِهِمْ يَقُولُونَ رَبَّنَا أَتْمِمْ لَنَا نُورَنَا وَاغْفِرْ لَنَا إِنَّكَ عَلَى كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ  
8. O you who claim to be peaceful citizen turn to Allâh with sincere repentance! it may be that your lord will pardon you from your sins, and admit you into Gardens where prosperity flourishes under their control. The day when Allâh does not disgrace the prophet and those who deliver peace with him, Their beacon ( چراغ راہ، / نور) will guide their power and oaths. They will say: "Our Lord! complete perfectly our light for us and save us, Undoubtedly, you are able to do All things."  
يَا أَيُّهَا النَّبِيُّ جَاهِدِ الْكُفَّارَ وَالْمُنَافِقِينَ وَاغْلُظْ عَلَيْهِمْ وَمَأْوَاهُمْ جَهَنَّمُ وَبِئْسَ الْمَصِيرُ  
9. O Prophet strive hard against those who refuse to implement peace those who are hypocrites, and be firm and uncompromising against them, their destiny is Hell, and worst indeed is that destination.  
ضَرَبَ اللَّهُ مَثَلا لِلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا اِمْرَأَةَ نُوحٍ وَامْرَأَةَ لُوطٍ كَانَتَا تَحْتَ عَبْدَيْنِ مِنْ عِبَادِنَا صَالِحَيْنِ فَخَانَتَاهُمَا فَلَمْ يُغْنِيَا عَنْهُمَا مِنَ اللَّهِ شَيْئًا وَقِيلَ ادْخُلا النَّارَ مَعَ الدَّاخِلِينَ  
10. Allâh sets forth an example for those who refuse to implement peace , the community of Noh and the community of Lot , they were under two of our righteous law abiding persons, but both the communities betrayed ,so they both did not benefit themselves against Allâh, and it was said: "Enter the Fire along with those who enter!"  
وَضَرَبَ اللَّهُ مَثَلا لِلَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اِمْرَأَةَ فِرْعَوْنَ إِذْ قَالَتْ رَبِّ ابْنِ لِي عِنْدَكَ بَيْتًا فِي الْجَنَّةِ وَنَجِّنِي مِنْ فِرْعَوْنَ وَعَمَلِهِ وَنَجِّنِي مِنَ الْقَوْمِ الظَّالِمِينَ  
11. and Allâh has set forth an example for the implementer of peace the community of Pharaoh, when she said: "My Lord! build a home for me with you in paradise, and save me from Pharaoh and his actions and save me from the oppressors cruel and unjust people .  
وَمَرْيَمَ ابْنَتَ عِمْرَانَ الَّتِي أَحْصَنَتْ فَرْجَهَا فَنَفَخْنَا فِيهِ مِنْ رُوحِنَا وَصَدَّقَتْ بِكَلِمَاتِ رَبِّهَا وَكُتُبِهِ وَكَانَتْ مِنَ الْقَانِتِينَ  
12. And Maryam the follower of sociology who guarded her weaknesses and we enlightened her with our knowledge and she proved the truth of the commands her sustainer and his Scriptures, and she was one of the Qanitîn (ever ready to obey) .
