Hearts Melted Together

GENESIS 2:22–24--Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man, He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. 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 a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.

When a man and woman cleave to one another, their hearts are melted together. Jo Beth and I have been married a long time, so my original wedding ring became dull and worn. One Christmas she gave me a new ring. A jeweler took the old wedding ring, melted it down, added some gold, and made me a new ring.

I have some “old gold” and a bit of “new gold.” That’s what it means for two hearts to cleave to one another: they are melted together.

In a sense, then, the bedroom is a fusion chamber. Sexual intimacy between husband and wife is the prime expression of the oneness of the hearts melted together. If you are already married, celebrate the oneness. If you are contemplating marriage, choose carefully the heart you want fused to yours.
