Now for the matters you wrote
It is good for a man not to marry.
But since there is so much immorality,
each man should have his own wife,
and each woman her own husband.
The husband should fulfill
his marital duty to his wife,
and likewise the wife to her husband.
The wife's body does not
belong to her alone
but also to her husband.
In the same way,
the husband's body does not
belong to him alone
but also to his wife.

Do not deprive each other
except by mutual consent and for a time,
so that you may devote yourselves to prayer.
Then come together again
so that Satan will not tempt you
because of your lack of self-control.
I say this as a concession,
not as a command.
I wish that all men were as I am.
But each man has his own gift from God;
one has this gift, another has that.
Now to the unmarried and the widows I say:
It is good for them to stay unmarried,
as I am. But if they cannot control themselves,
they should marry,
for it is better to marry
than to burn with passion.
To the married I give this command
(not I, but the Lord):
A wife must not separate from her husband.
But if she does, she must remain unmarried
or else be reconciled to her husband.
And a husband must not divorce his wife.
To the rest I say this (I, not the Lord):
If any brother has a wife who is not a believer
and she is willing to live with him,
he must not divorce her.
And if a woman has a husband
who is not a believer and
he is willing to live with her,
she must not divorce him.

For the unbelieving husband has
sanctified through his wife,
and the unbelieving wife has been
sanctified through her believing husband.
Otherwise your children would be unclean,
but as it is, they are holy.
But if the unbeliever leaves, let him do so.
A believing man or woman
is not bound in such circumstances;
God has called us to live in peace.
How do you know, wife,
whether you will save your husband?
Or, how do you know, husband,
whether you will save your wife?
~ 1 Corinthians 7: 1-16
