We learn God’s heart for our human relationships in regards to sexuality.
You don't have to choose between the relationship and the rules
Rules without relationship always leads to rebellion
You shall not commit adultery
You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
1 Cor 6:16-18
Or do you not know that he who is joined to a prostitute becomes one body with her? For, as it is written, “The two will become one flesh.” But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him. Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.
The Corinthian Views of Sexuality:
1 Cor. 7:1
Now concerning the matters about which you wrote: “It is good for a man not to have sexual relations with a woman.”
1 Cor. 7:2
The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. (NIV)
Sex should not be deified or denied
1 Cor. 7:3
For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. Likewise, the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does.
1 Cor. 7:4-5
Do not deprive one another, except perhaps by agreement for a limited time, that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then come together again, so that Satan may not tempt you because of your lack of self-control.
1 Cor. 6:19-20
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So, glorify God in your body.
Your body has been bought
