One of the most intimate and difficult of all human relationships is that of marriage. Most likely a married man himself, Paul would have been able to speak from personal experience as he taught Church members about marriage. Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities.” [33]. Yet, our teens experience a unique challenge when it comes to working through loss. But Paul was neither condoning a husband’s unrighteous dominion nor was he lending support for any kind of abuse. Would Paul’s counsel in these verses be suitable for all Church members or even for all unmarried and widowed members? [25] Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary, s.v. More likely Paul’s concern here has to do with a husband or wife who rejects or withholds sexual intimacy from the spouse for long periods of time in an attempt to hurt, manipulate, control, or seek revenge. (Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1966), 242; see also McConkie, Mortal Messiah (Salt Lake City: Deseret Book, 1980), 3:294–95; Spencer W. Kimball, “The Blessings and Responsibilities of Womanhood,” Ensign, March 1976, 71; Ezra Taft Benson, Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson (Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1988), 534. “But he who is married, careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife; therefore there is a difference, for he is hindered.” Then, in verse 38 (JST) Paul concludes, “So then he that giveth himself in marriage doeth well; but he that giveth himself not in marriage doeth better.”. Conversely, as Elder Russell M. Nelson noted: “Without a strong commitment to the Lord, an individual is more prone to have a low level of commitment to a spouse.” [20]. . This is for the unmarried and widows. Marriage may be like the Abrahamic or the Mosaic in some respects without being like either in all respects. 2. Elder Bruce R. McConkie interpreted Paul’s statement to mean, “I would that all men understood the law of marriage, that all had self-mastery over their appetites, and that all obeyed the laws of God in these respects.”[14] That interpretation would seem to be confirmed by the rest of verse 7: “But every man hath his proper [i.e., his own] gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that.” In addition to the spiritual gifts Paul discerned among the Corinthian Saints, he desired that they seek after the gifts of understanding, of self-mastery, and of unqualified obedience to the will of God. Members of the Apostolic church believe that the Bible is the infallible word of God and that it must be interpreted literally to be properly understood. “I Would That All Men Were Even as I Myself.” Paul begins verse 7 with this statement: “For I would that all men were even as myself.” What exactly is Paul yearning for here? Would divorce be justified then? Third, to avoid temptation after marriage, there must be commitment. shall take that man and chastise him; and they shall amerce him in an hundred So dear Another question that Paul apparently dealt with on a frequent basis had to do with the issue of interfaith marriage and whether or not a member so involved should seek a divorce, particularly in cases where the influence of the unbelieving spouse was perceived by the member to be negative or detrimental to gospel living. [19] See, for example, Ezra Taft Benson, “To the Young Women of the Church,” Ensign, November 1986, 82–83; Benson, “To the Single Adult Brethren of the Church,” Ensign, May 1986, 44. Abstinence in marriage can cause unnecessary temptations and tensions. That statement could be preceded by this one: “Jesus first loved us because the Father first loved him.” Can you see a pattern? But while prophets have counseled married couples to keep their sexual passions and behaviors within appropriate boundaries, the context of 1 Corinthians 7 suggests that Paul is referring to something else. Fourth, Paul’s teachings on marriage are, themselves, indicative of his conviction to the importance of marriage in God’s eternal plan. Now, what about Paul’s counsel that women should submit themselves to their husbands in “every thing.” Are women really required to submit to their husbands in every thing? He counseled children: “obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right” (Ephesians 6:1; emphasis added). 185 Heber J. “And God blessed them [not him or her alone] and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion” (Genesis 1:27–28, emphasis added). . Total Fidelity after Marriage. Could those two statements be followed by “And wives love their husbands because husbands first loved their wives?” Now, certainly we could reverse that and say that husbands love their wives because their wives first loved them. “To be trusted,” President David O. McKay taught, “is a greater compliment than to be loved.” [8]. And love precedes progress. you cannot put away your unsaved wife or husband. . . Many wives in that kind of marriage report a correlation between their own submissiveness to such behavior and the increase in severity and frequency in the acts of domination imposed upon them by their husbands. Since experience and credibility are so closely intertwined in the minds of most people, the Saints of that day would have been more likely to listen to Paul’s counsel if they believed he had learned, by his own experience, what a marital relationship was really like. “For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. (London: Latter-day Saints’ Book Depot, 1854–86), 16:247. Sexual desires are to be fulfilled only within the bonds of a legal marriage. If so, are we to conclude that Paul wished that all men might experience the trauma of divorce or the loneliness of widowhood or that being divorced or widowed was somehow preferable to being married? . and marry someone though she be married to another man. (Apostolic exhortations are different from encyclicals, which do focus on doctrine.) It is a huge desire of most people’s hearts to have a wonderful marriage, but it seems that few attain it. "But I say unto you, that whosoever There are some people who have said that behind the bedroom doors anything goes. This has been . It is interesting that Paul teaches the same idea regarding children and parents. During his ministry in the meridian of times, Paul encountered a Church membership that was changing with the influx of Gentile converts. Other New Testament scholars have suggested that at the time this counsel was given Paul was either widowed or divorced. Should he marry before leaving on a mission? We have a very loving and intimate sex life and we're trying to educate ourselves on the teachings of the Catholic Church. “Let the husband,” he says, “render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband.” Benevolence is a “disposition to do good” or to “an act of kindness.” [6] President David O. McKay said: “Benevolence in its fullest sense is the sum of moral excellence, and comprehends every other virtue. married for years. "It is better to marry than to Benevolence and selfishness are opposing forces. Then all that you need for happiness will come to you.” [13]. “That they all may be one,” Jesus prayed, “as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. That is not true and the Lord would not condone it.” [12]. Paul’s most pivotal teachings on the subject of marriage are found in 1 Corinthians 7, 1 Corinthians 11, and Ephesians 5. The Saviors and our submissiveness was (and still is) complete and unconditional. maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity. . Both can be perfectly trusting of the other if both have proven to be perfectly trustworthy, which is possible because the seeds of benevolence have been sown between them. That divine pattern is also true in marriage. In the sequence of creation, God first created Adam from the earth (Genesis 2:7). “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” (Ephesians 5:23, 25, 28–31; emphasis added). He counseled, however, that if they could not do that, it would be better for them to marry than to commit sexual sin. . Paul’s clearest statement is but and if she depart, let her remain unmarried, or be reconciled to her husband: and let not the husband put away his wife (v. 11). “Surely,” said President Gordon B. Hinckley, “no one reading the scriptures, both ancient and modern, can doubt the divine concept of marriage. That is, the more He loved the Father and did His will, the more He could and would be able to love us. Interfaith Marriage. Throughout Paul’s writings, the virtue of submissiveness was encouraged in a number of different contexts, each bearing the connotation of supportiveness, cooperation, or subjection to the organizational leadership of another. brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel; and she shall be his wife; he . I would suggest that Paul’s counsel to develop benevolence, trust, and commitment is a good place to start. adultery.". take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her, and give occasions of speech Paul’s counsel on both issues is found in verse 27: “Art thou bound unto a wife? Satan can tempt a couple to adopt a recycling pattern of self-justification and other-blaming. “benevolence.”. hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a To answer that question, consider two similar queries: Should a husband be willing to submit to the will of the Lord in every thing? The mind of the spouse begins to wander and the heart begins to stray, thereby allowing Satan to gain greater power to tempt and destroy the marriage. In verse 4, Paul uses an analogy to describe the trust that should exist between a husband and wife. That is not the truth. He wrote: “And unto the married I command, yet not I, but the Lord, Let not the wife depart from her husband: But .

McConkie noted, “is lack of restraint and failure to bridle one’s passions (particularly where sex desires are concerned).” [10] What was Paul suggesting, in this context, by the word incontinency? They must recognize that they cannot break the cycle on their own. The idea that a woman should submit to her husband in everything is a controversial notion in our day. That is the way Jesus defined it and that is the way we must define it. “I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress [a full-time mission], for a man so to remain that he may do greater good” (JST). .

The basis for the union of marriage is found in Genesis 2:18-24 which reads, “And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. Paul would have understood and concurred with those sentiments. First Corinthians 7, probably written sometime in the spring of A.D. 57, was a letter Paul wrote in response to questions posed in an earlier correspondence from Corinthian converts. “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.
