But because sexual immorality is so common, p q each man should have his own wife, r and each woman should have her own husband. A husband should fulfill his marital responsibility s to his wife, and likewise a wife to her husband. A wife does not have the right over her own body, but her husband does. In the same way, a husband does not have the right over his own body, but his wife does. Do not deprive t one another sexually—except when you agree for a time, to devote yourselves to u prayer. Then come together again; otherwise, Satan may tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
