Many of us are familiar with the iconic line “You complete me” from the famous movie Jerry Maguire. I loved watching the tear-filled scene as Tom Cruise’s character, Jerry, professed his undying need to be made whole by Renee Zellweger’s character, Dorothy. It seemed to make perfect sense…two halves becoming one whole. But, it’s not at all how marriage is described in the Bible.
In Genesis 2:24, the union of marriage is described as this,
“That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh.”
So, yeah. Marriage is in part a physical, sexual union between a husband and wife, but I love how Mark 10:7-8 records Jesus describing this connection even further.
