Marriage relationship

I am interpreting 1 Corinthians 7:24 for you:

In fact, Paul has included circumstances under which it is sensible for a Christian to seek out a change their status. Single people who “burn with passion” should, in fact, get married (1 Corinthians 7:9). Those married to unbelievers should not fight their change in status if their spouse demands a divorce (1 Corinthians 7:15). Slaves with the opportunity to be freed should take it (1 Corinthians 7:21).
In other words, Scripture’s command here is not a blanket restriction on changing from one situation to another, ever.

Instead, the Bible discourages believers from seeking radical change out of a wrongheaded idea that marital status, or social status, or even religious status will make them more spiritual or more acceptable to God. In a similar way, God doesn’t want them to attempt to change their status for the approval of other people. 

Paul adds the words “with God” to his statement about remaining. God is with Christians, no matter their current status in the short time we will exist on earth before eternity. Believers should not seek out radical, self-driven changes in their lives in an attempt to get closer to God. He is already fully with them.
The change should be done and prepared by God himself, any thing you attempt to do by yourself at the wrong time, will surely have negative impact in your life.
