Husband and wife relationship

The Meaning of Becoming One In Marriage.


If people understood the meaning of the marriage vows they make, married life would be so easy. We need pre marital counselors, church leaders and parents teaching the youths what it actually means to become one, away from just quoting the scripture at the wedding reception.

"So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”Matthew 19:6 NKJV

You need to see what is in God's mind when He declares that you are no longer two but one flesh. And this goes beyond the joining in the physical through intercourse. The hidden meaning is in the losing of yourself into one another, such that your consciousness forgets you have two independent lives or bodies. 

"The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does" I Corinthians 7:4 NKJV.

This oneness in a marriage brings you to a place of losing your authority to each other. There's nothing like 'my things, my life'. You lose yourself to serving the needs and priorities of your spouse. In other words, you cannot do anything without factoring in how it will affect your partner.

This ongoing foolishness of husband and wife tearing each other's dreams apart, withholding support and companionship and betrayals would be non existent. When you understand that your thriving is dependent on your partner, you will make sure that they're okay. Simply because they are your destined complementary, you can't work well as a team without them. 

"For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church" Ephesians 5:29 NKJV

Just imagine if every youth was trained to look at dating and relationships with this mindset. This would preset their hearts and minds to commitment to serve even before they engage into any relationships.
