|But I would prefer you to be without worry. Whoever is without a wife is worried about the things of the Lord, as to how he may please God.
|But whoever is with a wife is worried about the things of the world, as to how he may please his wife. And so, he is divided.
|And the unmarried woman and the virgin think about the things that are of the Lord, so that she may be holy in body and in spirit. But she who is married thinks about the things that are of the world, as to how she may please her husband.
|Furthermore, I am saying this for your own benefit, not in order to cast a snare over you, but toward whatever is honest and whatever may provide you with the ability to be without hindrance, so as to worship the Lord.
