Fornication is forbidding by God to the man kinds in other to be holy unto Him (God) alone but we should get our own wife legally married so that we dont fulfill the lust of the flesh that can make us go against the law of God.

Great Verse,***ual immorality is a bone of contention,even among brethren.Apostle Paul witnessed this in his days,though marriage is not its solution,it will go a long way to create self control and respect for believers .

It's good to follow, but sad to say that some people get married only to be denied sexual satisfaction. Then you are trapped in this terrible situation.
