Paul writes a very practical advice to the church instructing them to follow Godly principles in building a life that is pleasing to God. The church at Corinth was tainted with Greek philosophy that taught that body was evil and so it is important to subdue the natural instincts of the body.
Paul writes to them this one simple principle, Don’t give the enemy a room to tempt you. If you want to get married, get married. Don’t subdue your desires and try to control them on your own. You will fail. It’s better to marry than to burn with lust.
