The one positive was they began to cling to one another to push away the loneliness they now experienced.
For Bible reading they started reading in Genesis and several things stood out. Reading where God decided to make a helpmate for Adam, Tom felt that was a great idea and the part where it said; the two shall become one flesh was exhilarating. Of course at this stage of marriage he thought that it referred to physical acts alone.
It was some time later he realized the spiritual application of this passage. The time when titillating love grows into a hearts devotion of dedication and caring. A oneness in purpose for life, A melding together where you no longer see two opposites as to being, yet allowing freedom of expression for each a one soul as well as a one flesh existence.
Having seen how others have missed this altogether and the struggle of trying to get “theirs” he determined to avoid this malady.
