Marriage
Romans 7:1-5 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?
  For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.
  So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.
  Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
  For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
1 Corinthians 7:1-17 Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman.
  Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
  Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.
  The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
  Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency.
  But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment.
  For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.
  I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I.
  But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.
  And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband:
  But and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife.
  But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.
  And the woman which hath an husband that believeth not, and if he be pleased to dwell with her, let her not leave him.
  For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband: else were your children unclean; but now are they holy.
  But if the unbelieving depart, let him depart. A brother or a sister is not under bondage in such cases: but God hath called us to peace.
  For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? or how knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?
  But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches.
1 Corinthians 7:27-40 Art thou bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Art thou loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.
  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.
  But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none;
  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;
  And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.
  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:
  But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife.
  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.
  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.
  But if any man think that he behaveth himself uncomely toward his virgin, if she pass the flower of her age, and need so require, let him do what he will, he sinneth not: let them marry.
  Nevertheless he that standeth stedfast in his heart, having no necessity, but hath power over his own will, and hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his virgin, doeth well.
  So then he that giveth her in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth her not in marriage doeth better.
  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.
  But she is happier if she so abide, after my judgment: and I think also that I have the Spirit of God.
Ephesians 5:22-33 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.
  For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
  Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
  Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;
  That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
  That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
  So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.
  For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:
  For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.
  For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
  This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
  Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.
Hebrews 13:4 Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
