Marry Fast Or Burn
The scripture says it's better to marry than to burn (which can possibly lead to the sin of fornication). So, should one rush into marriage to stop burning when it seems desire will not subside? Or should one just live with the burning while praying God remove this desire?

Walk in the Spirit, Lest you FULFILL the LUST of the FLESH.
If Married & Lust is in your Heart for other Women "You are an Adultrous person".
Sex out of Wedlock You are "a Fornicator".
This is why it is IMPOSSIBLE for a Praticing Gay person to Enter Heaven.
Man might allow them to marry, BUT GOD NEVER WILL.
NOT even STRAIGHT people "THAT FORNICATE" will enter Heaven.
NO Fornicators, Liars,Murderers ect. can Make it to Heaven. GODS WORDS

Are you talking about yourself or someone else? Or just asking? You should not have feeling like this about just anybody. If you do it's a problem. But, if you are intending on dating with the possibilty of marraige and these feelings arise, it is natural for this to happen. Then Gods word says, it is better to marry then burn.

No, you should not rush into marriage. Instead you should rush into a cold shower!

, when you truly love someone, you want to wait for when the time is right. when you only lust someone, you speed up the engagement and wedding so you can indulge your desires.

It is better to be single wishing you were married than married whishing you were single.

Sex is mostly in the mind. The best way to combat thoughts on sex, and in the process "put out the fire" (or anything God doesn't want you to think about,) is to fill you mind with thoughts of spiritual matters. Read Philippians 4:8

pray and ask God to help you hold back your desires till married. If you can not be with this person without needing to sin then you should not be alone with him to prevent any situations which would cause you to sin.
You need to pray and get priorities straight. If marrying for lust you need to take another look at what you want in life because a marraige based on lust will crumble. You need a relationship build on God.

Burning is the sin - To marry on the grounds of lust seems to make sex the only motive.
Marriage, needs endurance and so does courtship.
I like Sally's cold shower answer. Any man/woman willing to endure cold showers before marriage, might like the heart and heat after the marriage.
