Marriage question


#1

Is it true that married persons can call God their spouse, and we can find this in Christian writings and those of the saints? How is this?
Every time I love my wife, I am simultaneously loving God? I am loving God in the form of my wife?


#2

Never heard that one.


#3

I have never heard of such a thing. I have heard the husband loving his wife as Christ loved the church, etc. :slight_smile:


#4

The love of a married couple is a mirror of the perfect love of the Holy Trinity. So a husband loves his wife like the Father loves the Spirit, and so forth.
