How To Leave And Cleave To Your Spouse. The words “Leave” and “Cleave” stand out in the verses we are considering today. An understanding of those words will greatly help us in our marriage!

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.

The word “Leave” means to loosen, relinquish, permit, and forsake

It is a total departure.

But it is never a disconnection.

The man has to do the leaving.

Without leaving, there will never be a successful marriage.

All undue interference and control from the parents must be minimized.

The word “Cleave” means cling or adhere; to catch by pursuit: – abide, follow close (hard, after), be joined (together), and pursue hard

Allegiance must shift from parents to your wife. 

This is what marriage is.

Your wife comes first on the wedding day.

Your spouse becomes your priority.

Your mum is another man’s wife, not your wife.

 Your own wife must be your priority.

Cleaving means to catch by pursuit, so you never stop pursuing your wife.

You keep at it, even after the wedding.

In the pursuit lies the cleaving.

The man is to cleave unto HIS OWN wife!

An attempt to cleave to another man’s wife will usher in a marital crisis.

 It also means to follow close.

Be joined and connected to her emotionally and otherwise.

When things seem not to be going right, you don’t quit.

This is How To Leave And Cleave To Your Spouse

You don’t pack your stuff and start singing songs of divorce when there is a little provocation.

This is what cleaving is.

It is just like your relationship with God.

You are to cleave unto Him and not try to leave when things seem not to be going your own way.

Leaving God and refusing to cleave will complicate issues, and that is the same thing in marriage.

You are to cleave for life!

Any attempt to leave is a tearing part that would be painful. 

Stay with each other no matter what.

Cleaving means that you are dedicated to each other.

It means sharing with each other on the deepest level.

It means enjoying each other and supplying warmth for yourselves. This is How To Leave And Cleave To Your Spouse

Ecc 4:11 (KJV) 
Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?

 I pray that God will grant understanding.

Your marriage will not suffer a crisis.

Your marriage will not lose that godly steam.

I pray that God will pour new wine into your marriage and cause the love between you to come alive!

Have a great day!

I will cleave to my spouse

Lord, help to leave completely and cleave fully to my spouse   

Ecc 4:11 (CEV)  If you sleep alone, you won’t have anyone to keep you warm on a cold night4

Cleave to your spouse in a special way today

Gen 2
