How can two separate people become one? It is the same way that we are made a part of God's family. We are grafted in. When the two are married, they are joined together. The longer they are together, the stronger that bond becomes. They grow together, and they both bear fruit together.
'and the two shall become one flesh'; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh.
The marriage is a picture of God's love for us. Just as a husband, and wife are joined in marriage, we are to be joined to the body of Christ. We are in Christ, and He is in us.
