'Married' in the Bible
Now we had among us seven brothers. The eldest of them married, but died childless, leaving his wife to his brother.
At the Resurrection, therefore, whose wife of the seven will she be? for they all married her."
For Herod himself had sent and had had John arrested and had kept him in prison in chains, for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip's wife; because he had married her.
There were once seven brothers, the eldest of whom married a wife, but at his death left no family.
The second married her, and died, leaving no family; and the third did the same.
At the Resurrection whose wife will she be? For they all seven married her."
There was also Anna, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, belonging to the tribe of Asher. She was of a very great age, having had after her maidenhood seven years of married life,
"Another said, "'I am just married. It is impossible for me to come.'
The woman, then--at the Resurrection--whose wife shall she be? for they all seven married her."
A married woman is not mistress of her own person: her husband has certain rights. In the same way a married man is not master of his own person: his wife has certain rights.
But to those already married my instructions are--yet not mine, but the Lord's--that a wife is not to leave her husband;
but a married man concerns himself with the business of the world--how he shall please his wife.
There is a difference too between a married and an unmarried woman. She who is unmarried concerns herself with the Lord's business--that she may be holy both in body and spirit; but the married woman concerns herself with the business of the world--how she shall please her husband.
Let married women be silent in the Churches, for they are not permitted to speak. They must be content with a subordinate place, as the Law also says;
and if they wish to ask questions, they should ask their own husbands at home. For it is disgraceful for a married woman to speak at a Church assembly.
Married women, submit to your own husbands as if to the Lord;
And just as the Church submits to Christ, so also married women should be entirely submissive to their husbands.
Married men, love your wives, as Christ also loved the Church and gave Himself up to death for her;
So too married men ought to love their wives as much as they love themselves. He who loves his wife loves himself.
Yet I insist that among you also, each man is to love his own wife as much as he loves himself, and let a married woman see to it that she treats her husband with respect.
Married women, be submissive to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
Married men, be affectionate to your wives, and do not treat them harshly.
Married women, in the same way, be submissive to your husbands, so that even if some of them disbelieve the Message, they may, apart from the Message, be won over by the daily life of their wives, after watching your daily life--
Married men, in the same way, live with your wives with a clear recognition of the fact that they are weaker than you. Yet, since you are heirs with them of God's free gift of Life, treat them with honour; so that your prayers may not be hindered.
