From Leaving To Cleaving To Your Boo In 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” and “Cleave” stands out in the above verse.

An understanding of those words will greatly help us in our marriage!

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 from 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 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 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 what it means to cleave.

You don’t pack your stuffs 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 seems 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.

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 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!
