I believe there is something beautiful when you get married under the Blessing of God. As Unificationist I believe that the core of a healthy and successful society is result of healthy families that have a strong commitment in their faith and in their love.
Yes, she is my beautiful wife Marites, and I receive from her all the love God can give me every moment. For us as unificationists, we believe that our partner can become the expression of the masculinity/femininity of God. This is described in the bible in Genesis 1:26-28:
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
When God said “Let us Make Man in our image, after our likeness” it means not a trinity of Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit, but it explain about the nature of God. For us, as Unificationists, it is a very important topic that holds all our faith since it is known as “The Purpose of The Creation”.
This make me think many things.
- The concept of eternity : Since we are image and representation of God, we inherit all his attributes and virtues. Of course we are not talking something like “Bruce All-Mighty” representation of ourselves, but, is the capability to love as God. Since God is and absolute and eternal being, His love has this attributes. At the end, a perfect Adam and a Perfect Eve can inherit this attributes of eternal love. Rev. Moon explain it many times.
- The concept of couple in the society : I believe that the real marriage is between a men and a women. God did not create Adam and Steve. Regardingless of what kind of relationship a gay couple has, I as unificationist believe that is very difficult for them to have a real family. I know I’m touching a very sensitive topic, but as far I know, in one generation the Humanity can be finished if all men/women were gay .
So returning back to my topic, My marriage is an authentic expression of God Blessing. I was not only able to be matched with a person completelly different in terms of race of culture, but at the very end you learn to love the world in the hands of the person you love.
This is our third anniversary, and I’m very proud to have such beautiful wife. I know as everything in life has difficult times, but nothing shades against the honest and pure love between a husband and wife.
