A hermaphrodite is an organism having both male and female reproductive organs.[1] In many species, hermaphroditism is a common part of the life-cycle, enabling a form of sexual reproduction in which partners are not separated into distinct male and female types of individual.
How would God determine what sex these people actually are and which sex they should marry so they do not sin? Or should they not marry?

Hermaphrodite - Hermaphrodism In Humans

Quote:
Although doctors throughout history have tried to hide the existence of hermaphrodites from public knowledge, the public is now fully aware that these Star Trek versions of the human species are very real and exist in nature are a natural part of nature. Hermaphrodites are as much a natural part of nature as any other human being. Doctors have been giving hermaphrodite babies sex changes throughout history in order to hide their existence. But a sex change does not change the fact that these people are both male and female. While it may be difficult for any of us to imagine what it would be like to be both male and female in one body, it is not difficult for a hermaphrodite to realize. It is as natural for them to be who they are as it is for us to be who we are. As far as having sex with a hermaphrodite, this is neither a gay, straight, or bisexual encounter since the hermaphrodite is both male and female.

Do they contain both reproductive organs? Are they fertile as both male and female? Do they have a Y chromosome? Regardless of whether or not they have extra body parts, they are only 1 gender.

God only looks at the soul. The soul has no sexual organs. We only get those while were here.

They are infertile most of the time, although not always.

Although they may have both appendages, they don't have fully functional reproductive systems. They are not both male and female.

You're just playing with words. A human being with both sets of sexual organs who is infertile is neither (not both, as you seem to think has been implied) male nor female. That human being is a hermaphrodite. See?

But what is the Christian solution? Can they have sex with members of the same sex, meaning they have both sexes, so who can they sleep with if they wish to get married? Or since they can't reproduce is it forbidden for them to marry and have sex? Are they then neither sex? If so, who are they Biblically allowed to partner with?

Why did God create them this way?

Here is a little more information for you to go on:

Babies that are born with both male and female sexual organs, or characteristics of both organs, are called hermaphrodites or intersex. A child who is in an intersex state is classified in one of three categories: 1) true hermaphrodite – an infant born with both ovaries and testicles and has both male and female sex organs. 2) female pseudohermaphrodite – a genetic female with male external sex organs. 3) male pseudohermaphrodite – genetic male with external sex organs that fail to develop properly, resulting in female or male/female physical characteristics.

So if my girl parts aren't fully functional, by default you claim I'm not female? Nice!

they can marry the opposite gender. They are either male or female. Not both.

I know it's a bad thing...but sometimes birth defects just happen.
