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

Thank you, I am being married to a wonderful man in December, and this illustrates to me one of the differences between living together and being married.

I love the picture of the crushed grape and the blend of the wine, because the two truly "become one", in the Covenant marriage between a man and a woman. Just as in the weave of a three-stranded cord, mentioned in Ecclesiastes, the weave of the two, with God in the center, creates the strongest weave of all.

Wiah my first marriage had been like wine

We started out no more than kids, but we're so fiercely independent never made wine just stayed two different types of grapes. I think the process of becoming wine has to be God the winemaker. And the two varieties must surrender themselves to Him.

I thought this was an excellent picture of what marriage is supposed to be. When my husband left this world behind I felt as if half of me had been ripped away. We had been together 46 years and were still in love.
