Best discription of marriage ever.

As I watch my married children struggle in our western influenced culture, there are many different struggles they face. Different checking accounts, different family and career goals, different ideas of the importance of G-d in their lives.
Being one means, OUR money, OUR family and career goals, OUR connection to G-d. This means loving enough to give-up oneself for the union of one. Each functions uniquely but combine to make one body.
With this in human form we fight selfishness, self pride, self centeredness, self inclination to do evil for the sake of the one. It is not easy and can not be achieved quickly. But all things are possible with G-d.

Beautiful

What a wonderful lesson. Of course, each person is still an individual but it is far superior if they can blend together.

Very nice concept but how can you become one? In what ways or actions?

give

Adopt the mindset of being a giver instead of a taker. A person is married not in order to get anything (satisfaction, possessions, etc.). Be married because of what you can give to your spouse. Find ways to help him/her become a better, happier person. With success, the sense of fulfillment of this kind of relationship will give you real happiness and a truly beautiful relationship.
