Please read the whole chapter 1 corinthians 7:1-8

Now concerning the things whereof ye wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband. Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife. Defraud ye not one the other, except it be with consent for a time, that ye may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not for your incontinency. But I speak this by permission, and not of commandment. For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man hath his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that. I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is good for them if they abide even as I. But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is better to marry than to burn.
I was not trying to say it is okay to fornicate but I don't think that that scripture is applicable to people who are not in relationships because they cannot use it. They are unlikely to be fornicating with others as well as unlikely to have someone to marry because they are not dating anyone. Only people who are in relationships but not yet married will consider this.

Ex. I am single and not dating anyone currently. If some one told me "it is better to marry than to burn" then I'd be like "okay, that's nice" because I have no one to burn with or marry, if that makes any sense.

And as far as lust goes that is what the thread is about. Masturbation, so getting married really has nothing to do with it anyway.
