ONE FLESH


For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.
-Genesis 2:24,25

God gave marriage as a gift to Adam and Eve. They were perfectly created for each other. Marriage was not just for convenience, nor was it brought about by any culture. It was instituted by God and has three basic aspects. (1) the man ‘leaves’ his father and mother and, in a public act promises himself to his wife; (2) the man and woman are joined together by taking responsibility for each other’s welfare and loving their mate above all others; (3) the two become ‘one person’ or ‘oneflesh’ in the intimacy and commitment of sexual union which is reserved for marriage. Strong marriages today include all three of these aspects.

-Life Application Bible, p 9
