missing person alert

“For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh”

For what reason?

The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man.  The man 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.”

For the reason that she isn’t a separate entity, but rather part of him, living in a different body.  For the reason that he is missing a piece; he is incomplete without her.

    Just reading my bible here. Hope this doesn’t offend your 21st century values and world view.

    Reminded me of this:
    Eph 5: 25Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her 26to make her holy, cleansing[b] her by the washing with water through the word, 27and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. 28In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself.
