So this is love. Da da dum da dum.
When the bride comes in and she makes her giant grand entrance, I like to glance back at the poor bastard getting married. Cause even though I think he’s an idiot for willingly entering into the last legal form of slavery, he always looks really, really happy.

When God made the first man, He loved his creation. But besides serving God something was missing in Adam’s life. And God noticed it.
The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”
So God brought every creature he made and brought it to Adam, but for Adam no suitable helper was found.
Long story short, He made a woman out of Adam. Literally.
And we hear the world’s first ever love confession when Adam lays his eyes on his new bff:
The man said, “This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.”
For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.
God intended marriage like a braid. You start off with 3 strands- you, him and God. But once the braid is done, people only end up seeing two strands, you and him- with God interwoven between.
