A while back, a friend and I were discussing how we felt concerning the biblical idea of a man "leaving and cleaving" and what exactly did that mean, or how should it be applied in relationships today.
So, I have a question for the guys in our midst:
What is your understanding of the concept "leaving and cleaving?" How
far would you move in order to marry someone? Is it always necessary
for the guy to move out of state, in order to fulfill the dictum, or
just to move out of his parents house? Should the girl ever "leave and
cleave" i.e. move out of state, etc., in order to marry? What about
sons and daughters who desire to live near their parents in order to
carry out a multi-generational homestead, etc.?
And, gals, you are more than welcome to weigh in as well.
