I wonder why I should buy an opinion of BDAG rather than FWSFOROS (his
is more enlightening)?   Isn't it enough to see the text just say
'When they gather together'? What does the idiomatic phrase in a
locative sense says more than what the text says?

In this particular example in 1Co 7:5, many English translations
actually omit it, while a few seems take it as 'purpose' when
paraphrasing (as in NET '.... resume your relationship').
