Marriage is a life long commitment. The husband is the head over the wife, and neither should deprive the other without mutual consent.
||Therefore a man shall
leave his father and mother and be joined to
his wife, and they shall become one
||Wives, submit to your own
husbands, as to the Lord. For the
husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head
of the church; and He is the Savior of the
body. Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ,
so let the wives be to their own husbands in
everything. Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ
also loved the church and gave Himself for her... So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.... Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
|| Wives, submit to your own husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter toward them.
||Marriage is honorable among all,
and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge.
|1 Corinthians 7:2-5

And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time , that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
|1 Corinthians 7:39,40
||A wife is bound by law as long as
her husband lives; but if her husband dies, she is at liberty
to be married to whom she wishes, only in the
Lord. But she is happier if she remains as she is, according to my judgment -- and I think I also have the Spirit of God.
if, while her husband lives, she marries another man,
she will be called an adulteress; but if her husband
dies, she is free from that law, so that she
is no adulteress, though she has married another

sexual immorality, and marries another, commits adultery; and
whoever marries her who is divorced commits
