When the Bible speaks about, “one flesh,” it is speaking about sex. Sex is the blending of body, soul, and spirit. It means letting go and revealing all your dreams, deepest desires, energies, and love to your spouse, giving him/her the greatest gift – YOURSELF. Sex communicates, “I Love You” in the most intimate way. God designed sex for the “two” to become “one” in marriage. So, sex is God’s special wedding gift to you.
