    And Adam said:
    “This is now bone of my bones
    And flesh of my flesh;

    Because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.
     
  • Genesis 1:27-28
    So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

  • Matthew 19:4-6
    And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who madethem at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”
     
  • Malachi 2:15-16
    But did He not make them one,
    Having a remnant of the Spirit?
    And why one?
    He seeks godly offspring.
    Therefore take heed to your spirit,
    And let none deal treacherously with the wife of his youth.
    "For the LORD God of Israel says
    That He hates divorce,
    For it covers one's garment with violence,"
    Says the LORD of hosts.
    "Therefore take heed to your spirit,
    That you do not deal treacherously."

    Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband. The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does. And likewise the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does.
     
  • Ephesians 5:28-29
    So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church.
