Paul is talking about the principals of marriage. He warns married people to not deprive your spouse of sex because while not being provided for sexually you will most likely be tempted to sin. For most men, you wouldn't dream of depriving your wife of sexual relations. For most women, sex is not on our minds nearly as often as men. I am no sex therapist- but Paul has some pretty good advice here. I know that if my husband and I are without sex for more than a few days, the house has more tension in it. It then dawns on me that we haven't been intimate, but usually by that tense time, that's the last thing I want to give! If we as women keep this verse in mind, maybe even handy- it may just change our attitudes about the "headache" we have. You know what I'm talking about....! If we think seriously though, that when we choose to not provide for our husbands' sexual needs, he will most likely be tempted, would you think twice about serving him in this area? Or would you rather him be tempted and trust his self control? I doubt that latter. I've been down the road of sexual temptation and have failed miserably. For a man- it's not his choice that he needs sex. God made him that way! Does that not mean that God also then expects us, as their spouse, to serve them in that way? Absolutely. It's not something I always like to remember- especially when Joey and I have had a disagreement and the bitterness lasts a few days. But honestly- sex is usually the best cure. Go figure!
