Were members of the Sanhedrin required to be married?
The Sanhedrin was made up of 71 council members. It was a major requirement that all members of the Sanhedrin be married.
To be a member of the Sanhedrin you had to be married and at least 30 years of age.
Scripture doesn't specifically indicate, but members of the Sanhedrin were required to be married, and it seems likely that Saul did indeed sit on the Jewish ruling council (Acts 8:1). By the time he wrote his epistles he obviously did not have a wife, so it is very possible that Paul was a widower (1 Corinthians 7:8).
The members of the Sanhedrin were the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law. The elders were lay members, the chief priests were the Sadducees and the teachers of the law were the Pharisees.
To many who have examined the evidence available, it appears that being married was a requirement for membership in this high court of the Jews, and at one point, only married men WITH children were acceptable.
Elders, chief priests and teachers of the law.
The Sanhedrin (Hebrew: ×¡Ö·× Ö°×”Ö¶×“Ö°×¨Ö´×™×Ÿâ€Ž) was was an assembly of twenty-three judges appointed in every city in the Biblical Land of Israel. The Great Sanhedrin was the supreme court of ancient Israel made of 71 members. The Great Sanhedrin was made up of a Chief/Prince/Leader called Nasi (at some times this position may have been held by the Kohen Gadol or the High Priest), a vice chief justice (Av Beit Din), and sixty-nine general members.
was Saul later named Paul ever married because he was a member of the Sanhedrin?
The difference in function between a Sanhedrin and a Beit Din was that the Sanhedrin required the vote of all members, whereas the Beit Din only required the vote of a vice chief justice. Jewish answer: The Beit Din and the Sanhedrin are two different things. 1) The Sanhedrin existed in ancient times. It was a Jewish court of 23 or 71 Torah scholars. The court of 23 judged capital crimes (Talmud, Sanhedrin 2a). Every… Read More
Rashi commentary (on the Talmud, Sanhedrin 58b) states that, even though they may not have been required, the practice was for married women to cover their hair in public, out of modesty. This practice was kept not only among Jews.
The Hasmonean court in the Land of Israel, presided over by Alexander Jannaeus, king of Judea until 76 BCE, followed by his wife, Salome Alexandra in 76 or 75 BCE, bore all the trappings of Hellenistic royalty: ministers, courtiers, a bureaucracy and bodyguards. The former Council of Elders was renamed Synhedrion or Sanhedrin. The exact nature of this early Sanhedrin is not clear. It may have been a body of sages and/or priests, or a… Read More
This is copied from another site: http://www.gotquestions.org/apostle-Paul-married.html Some believe that the Apostle Paul was married because history tells us that a member of the Sanhedrin was required to be married. However, Paul never stated that he was a member of the Sanhedrin. He definitely seemed to be on the path, "I was advancing in Judaism beyond many Jews of my own age and was extremely zealous for the traditions of my fathers" (Galatians 1:14). However… Read More

If you are looking for its name, it was called the sanhedrin. its members were the priests of the church, the pharisees and saducces and more.
Jesus had no formal relationship with the Sanhedrin. To the Sanhedrin Jesus was a problem His popularity with people, His miracles and His claims to authority made the religious officials in Jerusalem nervous; Jesus' approach to Sabbath practice, healings, exorcisms, and sinners ended up challenging the existing religious structure of Judaism. So members of the Sanhedrin plotted to get rid of Jesus. Matthew 26:59 Now the chief priests, the elders, and all the council sought… Read More
I believe only 3 members, Daniel, David and Paul, are married
The members of the Sanhedrin had to be experts in the entire written and oral Torah. They had to be people whose righteousness was exemplary. In addition, they needed to have enough worldly knowledge to be able to judge. For example, a sage who knew nothing about the methods of burglars wouldn't be considered competent to judge a case of burglary.
All four were married

The Passover is a very holy, sacred time. The Sanhedrin probably realised the arrest would end in death, and did not want the Passover to be violated by a good teacher's death. They may not have believed His claim about being the Son of God, but they did acknowledge Him as being a teacher who spoke with authority.
The sanhedrin used to meet at the outer wall of the temple.

Many people are under the mistaken belief that the Sanhedrin was made up of priests. However, the Sanhedrin was completely separate from the priesthood and was made up of religious scholars. The leader of the Sanhedrin from 9CE to 50CE was Rabban Gamaliel the Elder.
