"That is why man leaves his father and mother and is attached to his wife, and with her becomes one flesh." (Genesis 2:24)
They become one flesh: in Hebrew it means that they form one single being. This union of the couple is part of their mission. It is not a provisional agreement to enjoy each other, but the union of a family in which God's work is accomplished. Therefore the family will be fruitful and the two will give back to the large human family the treasure of humanity which they received from it.
