Principles of Marriage

1 About the things you wrote:a "It is good for a man not to have relations withb a woman."c 2 But because of sexual immorality,d each man should have his own wife, and each woman should have her own husband. 3 A husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise a wife to her husband. 4 A wife does not have authority over her own body, but her husband does. Equally, a husband does not have authority over his own body, but his wife does. 5 Do not deprive one another-except when you agree, for a time, to devote yourselves toe prayer. Then come together again; otherwise, Satan may tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 6 I say this as a concession, not as a command. 7 I wish that all people were just like me. But each has his own gift from God, one this and another that.
