Marriage Day 6 – Does Your Marriage Look Like This?

A husband and wife are not just two people within the marriage. Yes, they have independent relationships with the Lord and with others, but they are also one flesh. Like our blessed Trinity, there is perfect oneness that unites the Father, Son, and Spirit. This kind of union is both a mystery and a practical reality. Though we cannot fully understand what a one-flesh union means, we can functionally and faithfully participate in a one-flesh marriage while enjoying its benefits. Before two people made a one-flesh covenant (agreement) with God, they were two individuals belonging to different family units. At some point after their initial introduction, they realized that being with each other was worth leaving their respective families to set up their unique autonomous domestic empire.
