“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”
“And said, for this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and the twain shall be one flesh” (Genesis 2:24 & Matthew 19:5,6 summarized)
There is a great Honoured principle behind the two key words in this Bible verses that are destitute in a lot of Marriages. The word ‘LEAVE & CLEAVE’

I once heard a Preacher said, the MAN here is referring to both male and female but I beg to defer because it is well clarified and so, it is the MALE – MAN and not the generic MAN.
I began to see the reason God made that statement, it is clear now that we have a lot of baby husbands than we have the real ones. All they have succeeded to do is leave their Fathers and Mothers physically but they didn’t cleave to their wives. They also leave their wives emotionally, spiritually, financially and mentally to cleave to their families. They run to their families at every little confusing or challenging situation, instead of forming an ally with their wives, have the situation discussed and both take it to God in prayer.
This is mostly the cause of many marital problems and conflicts.
To LEAVE and CLEAVE are just a letter difference from marital bliss and marital blister(problem).
That one letter is ‘C’ which can be a lot of things depending on how you manage it in your Union. This letter C could threaten your marriage or thicken your love for each other.
