We all know about the traditional teachings, but what else is there?

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - There are several areas of the Bible that touch on relationships between married couples. The following are CatholicOnline's top five quotes to open your eyes to exactly what is expected of a Godly marriage:

Do not stray, love your spouse and only your spouse!

Proverbs 5:15-20

Drink the water from your own storage-well, fresh water from your own spring. Even if your fountains overflow outside, your streams of water in the public squares: let them be for you alone, and not for strangers with you. May your fountain-head be blessed! Find joy with the wife you married in your youth, fair as a hind, graceful as a fawn: hers the breasts that ever fill you with delight, hers the love that ever holds you captive. Why be seduced, my son, by someone else's wife, and fondle the breast of a woman who belongs to another?

A man should treasure his wife just as much as a wife should treasure her husband.

1 Corinthians 7:1-6

Now for the questions about which you wrote. Yes, it is a good thing for a man not to touch a woman; yet to avoid immorality every man should have his own wife and every woman her own husband. The husband must give to his wife what she has a right to expect, and so too the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does; and in the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. You must not deprive each other, except by mutual consent for a limited time, to leave yourselves free for prayer, and to come together again afterwards; otherwise Satan may take advantage of any lack of self-control to put you to the test. I am telling you this as a concession, not an order.

Marriages should be honored.


Hebrews 13:4

Marriage must be honoured by all, and marriages must be kept undefiled, because the sexually immoral and adulterers will come under God's judgement.

1 Corinthians 6:18-20

Keep away from sexual immorality. All other sins that people may commit are done outside the body; but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Do you not realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you and whom you received from God? You are not your own property, then; you have been bought at a price. So use your body for the glory of God.

Overcoming Temptation.

Colossians 3:5

That is why you must kill everything in you that is earthly: sexual vice, impurity, uncontrolled passion, evil desires and especially greed, which is the same thing as worshipping a false god...
