One Woman, One Flesh
Suppose God wanted to create a world in which marriage re-
quired a man and a woman. How would he arrange this world?
What sort of story would be told?
Perhaps he would first make the man, and then—seeing the
man was all alone—make a suitable partner for him. Maybe,
in an expression of their equality and complementarity, God
would fashion the second human being out of the first. Maybe
the name of the one (woman, ishah in Hebrew) would be de-
rived from her natural complement (man, ish in Hebrew).
And in order to show the unique fittedness of the man for the
woman, perhaps God would give them a command (to be fruit-
ful and multiply) that could only be fulfilled by the coming
together of the two sexes. Maybe the story would end with the
two—one man and one woman—starting a new family together
and entering into a new covenant relationship, solemnized by
an oath and sealed by the sort of physical union capable of per-
petuating this family and reflecting their status as image bearers
of a divine Creator.
