Let me give you a picture of what this is like. There on a mountain top is a little stream that begins to trickle down. On a distant mountain another spring bubbles and forms a second spring and it begins to trickle down. Now each stream takes a unique course as it comes down the mountain side. And when these two streams meet and the water intermingles, they become one stream. That is like marriage.
