What is the spiritual meaning of "one-flesh?" I want to know what exactly is meant by man and wife are to become one-flesh? I don't mean in a physical way, but in a spiritual way. I asked my father and he thought that it means one-accord, agreeing all the time etc. I disagree with that. I gave the example that being one-flesh doesn't mean one always has to agree on everything or even think the same. That is not what makes someone one-flesh to me. To me, being one-flesh is about submitting to God as two unique individuals who makes a covenant to come together and honor God by building a Godly household, one that will serve him and stand together at the light in a world of darkness. I believe it means cherishing the feelings, emotions and life and protecting one another. I believe it means ultimately building up a stronger faith and household in Christ in order to lead others by example toward Christ. What do you think one-flesh means to God in a spiritual sense?
