    It’s a stalemate. “if my body is hers, then her desire to NOT do something is my body bringing her pleasure” ..... it’s not about physical intimacy, but mutual respect and honor in a marriage

    Ephesians 5 and 1 Timothy 3 he speaks in favor of marriage. Hebrews 13:4 it is said that “marriage should be honored.”

    5. 5. “Is it beneficial?” “Will it overpower and enslave me and so have a detrimental effect on the church and my testimony for Christ?”
    6. 6. 12  All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be enslaved by anything. 13 Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food--and God will destroy both one and the other.The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.14 And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by his power.15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a prostitute? Never!
    7. 7. 16 Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, The two will become one flesh. 17 But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. 18 Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. 19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own,20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
    8. 8. Marriage Questions Individual rights Some were making radical changes after their conversion
    9. 9. 1 Now concerning the matters about which you wrote: It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman. 2 But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.
    10. 10. 3 The husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights, and likewise the wife to her husband. 4 For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. 5 Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
    11. 11. 6  Now as a concession, not a command, I say this. 7 I wish that all were as I myself am. But each has his own gift from God, one of one kind and one of another.

    17. 17. 1 Corinthians 7
    18. 18. 1 Corinthians 7 17  Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him. This is my rule in all the churches.
    19. 19. 1 Corinthians 7 17  Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him. This is my rule in all the churches. 22 For he who was called in the Lord as a slave is a freedman of the Lord. Likewise he who was free when called is a slave of Christ. 23 You were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men.24 So, brothers, in whatever condition each was called, there let him remain with God.
    20. 20. 25  Now concerning the betrothed, I have no command from the Lord, but I give my judgment as one who by the Lord's mercy is trustworthy. 26 I think that in view of the present distress it is good for a person to remain as he is.
