Bible verses about Marriage Customs
(From Forerunner Commentary)

1 Corinthians 7:36-38

Dr. J. W. Shepard paraphrases these verses thus:

But if any man thinks that he is acting in an unbecoming manner toward his unmarried daughter, by withholding his consent to her marriage, if she may be of full age and if it ought to take place thus, let him do what he wishes about giving his consent to her marriage, he does not sin by so doing. Let them (the daughter and her lover) marry. But he who stands firm in his heart not having misgivings as to the (distress or) necessity but has legal authority (vested in the father by Roman law) concerning his own will and has decided this matter in his own heart, to keep his unmarried daughter, he will do well. So that, the conclusion follows, both the one who gives in marriage his own unmarried daughter does well or honorably and the one not giving in marriage will do better in view of the bad environment.
