38 So then, he who marries his virgin[a] does well, and he who does not marry her[b] does better.

39 A wife[c] is bound to her husband for as long as he lives, but if the husband has died, she is free to be married to any man she wishes, only in the Lord. 40 But she is more blessed if she stays as she is, in my judgment, and I think that I too have God’s Spirit.
