The scriptures indicate that in marriage the ‘two become one’. This does not mean that we loose our individuality, but it does mean that we share our lives with each other. The typical husband and wife spend many hours each day geographically separated from each other. Simply coming into the same house at the end of the day does not bring them together.
“Becoming one” is the result of many shared thoughts, feelings, activities, dreams, frustrations, joys and sorrows. In short, it is the result of sharing life. Establishing a ‘daily sharing time’ is the best way I know to make this happen. It is as vital to the marriage as food is to the body.
