God designed marriage so that two believers could experience His love to its fullest degree and experience how He meant the church to work together. Marriage isn’t meant for every believer for He has specific callings for every believer. It certainly isn’t meant for anyone that doesn’t abide by His Word.
More and more couples are splitting apart these days because they simply do not understand how God designed relationships to work. You should read the following passage carefully in order to understand how God intended this relationship to work. Even if you are not married or do not intend to get married, this passage will definitely have something that you can learn from and apply in your own life.
I Corinthians 7: 3-40
I Corinthians 7:3-6 ( Truths regarding fornication and marriage )
I Corinthians 7:7 I would that all men were even as I myself ( context – the unmarried – in verse eight ). But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.
I Corinthians 7:8 I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I.
I Corinthians 7:9 But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.
I Corinthians 7:10-24 ( The responsibilities of the husband and wife within their calling of marriage )
I Corinthians 7:25-26 ( Truths regarding virgins and what a good man’s responsibility to God is )
I Corinthians 7:27 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.
I Corinthians 7:28 But and if thou marry, thou hast not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she hath not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you.
I Corinthians 7:29 But this I say, brethren, the time [is] short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none;
I Corinthians 7:30 And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not;
I Corinthians 7:31 And they that use this world, as not abusing [it]: for the fashion of this world passeth away.
I Corinthians 7:32 But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord:
I Corinthians 7:33 But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please [his] wife.
I Corinthians 7:34 There is difference [also] between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please [her] husband.
I Corinthians 7:35 And this I speak for your own profit; not that I may cast a snare upon you, but for that which is comely, and that ye may attend upon the Lord without distraction.
I Corinthians 7:36-37 ( Truths regarding a man and his virgin and the question of marriage with regard to the man’s commitment to God’s service )
I Corinthians 7:38 So then he that giveth [her] in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth [her] not in marriage doeth better.
I Corinthians 7:39 The wife is bound by the law as long as her husband liveth; but if her husband be dead, she is at liberty to be married to whom she will; only in the Lord.
I Corinthians 7:40 But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment (context – unmarried commitment to God’s service in verses 8-38): and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.
