“And they two shall become one flesh.” –Ephesians 5:31

Marriage can be but between two, one man and one woman, for it is impossible that more than two should as nearly and firmly be joined together as man and wife are. Almost every word in this law proves this doctrine. For it says ‘a man,’ not men; to ‘a wife,’ not to wives; to ‘his’ wife, not to another’s wife; ‘two,’ not more than two; ‘they’ two, not any two; and ‘one flesh,’ not many fleshes.”

William Gouge, Building a Godly Home, Vol. 1 A Holy Vision for Family Life
