It is interesting the extent of love and bonding that exist between parents and their children. It is simply amazing as this bonding remains for years, even after the children became adults.

You often see adults becoming and behaving all over again like babies when they are around their parents.

And that is perfectly okay.

However as marriage approaches, this has to change quickly or else there will be issues in marriage.

The Bible is unequivocal when it declares:

Gen 2:24 (MSG)
Therefore a man leaves his father and mother and embraces his wife. They become one flesh.

Does this mean you should not take care of your parents? No. Does this mean you will not take care of them after marriage?

Not really?

What does it mean then?

It means that your husband or wife will take priority after wedding. That is exactly what marriage is.

KJV translation says there must be a leaving and then a cleaving.

Gen 2:24 (KJV)
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Without properly leaving, cleaving will be unachievable. That is the simple reality.

The Bible says they will become one flesh.

There is no intimacy that is higher than that aside the one with God

But before this intimacy can be a reality, there must be proper leaving.

So the question to you as a single is, are your prepared to leave and focus on your marriage?

Are you prepared to disconnect emotionally and focus that emotional energy to the one who will be your spouse?

Are you sure you will not be a Daddy’s girl or Mummy’s boy to the detriment of your marriage? Those are pertinent questions you need to ask.

May God grant you more understanding in Jesus name.

I am prepared to focus on my marriage.

Lord, help me to cleave to my spouse

Genesis 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Leave your parents

Gen 2
