Corinthians

1 Corinthians 7:4, " For the wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does; likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does." I can understand this passage to a certain point. It's like in today's society whomever we marry we belong to each other and whatever his is hers and hers is his. But in this passage authority over body? What exactly does this mean? Is this in relation to having a sexual relationship with another? Where is the cutoff? When do we begin to let others control our bodies and does this later end up letting others control our lives?
