Should a couple marry if they can’t control their sexual desires as singles?

If anyone is worried that he might not be acting honorably toward the virgin he is engaged to, and if his passions are too strong and he feels he ought to marry, he should do as he wants. He is not sinning. They should get married. But the man who has settled the matter in his own mind, who is under no compulsion but has control over his own will, and who has made up his mind not to marry the virgin—this man also does the right thing. 1 Corinthians 7:36-27
            Yes, but that shouldn’t be the only reason.  If sex is that important and the temptation to sin is too great, then marry, but they will soon realize that sex is not the most important part of the marriage—but sacrifice, mercy, love, devotion, kindness, serving all take priority.
            Paul wanted to the couple to know that commitment is better than sin, but don’t commit if it’s only going to lead to more sin.
