Paul's Suggestions on Marriage
I am just checking to verify that this is in line with the scripture in 1 Corinthians. If a man does not struggle with lust, there is no need for him to marry (In fact, Paul said it was better if a man didn't marry.) He said for single women or widows that if they didn't struggle with "burning of passions" that it wasn't necessary to get married.
First of all, I want to ensure my understanding is correct. Is it true that some people (who don't become nuns and priests) were not intended to be married?
In my case, I am a woman who went through severe abuse. I believe i wouldn't be able to get married and be intimate with a spouse like Paul suggested. So I want to know, is it wrong for me to decide marriage is just not for me? A lot of people encourage me to find "the right man" and settle down. People try to fix me up with men all of the time. But it bothers me, because it feels like people say I only have a purpose in God if I get married.
