The “Togetherness” of Marriage


There is something extra-special about happily married couples. I do not refer simply to their longevity together but to the idea that they truly belong together. Many of us have seen the beauty of couples who are rarely seen apart and who look out of place if they are apart. God designed marriage to be just like that, so that two people will grow closer together throughout their lives, so that they will learn to depend on one another, and so that through this “togetherness” they will have a home in the truest sense rather than only on paper or in the mundane chores of daily living.

God performed the first “wedding ceremony;” Moses records, “And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh” (Genesis 2:23-24). God intended marriage to foster togetherness, to build inter-dependency, and to create the proper environment of unity for training children. Many couples fill their lives with so many things that they forget to fill their lives with God and one another, but this is what marriage is supposed to be about.
