Marriage question


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?


Never heard that one.


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


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.
