In these passages, Paul speaks to the Corinthians about the relationship between a husband and a wife. He says that marriage is good for those who are tempted to fornicate because God only blesses sexual relations in a marriage. 

Sex strengthens a marriage, and married couples should not deny each other their sexual needs. Paul goes on to say, “The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does; and likewise, also the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does.” 

Therefore, married people should keep their bodies fit so that they remain physically appealing to each other. When one views their marriage with this in mind, it provides motivation to live a more healthy life. The result will be a more fulfilled marriage.
