Husbands, continue loving YOUR wives, just as the Christ also loved the congregation and delivered up himself for it, – Ephesians 5:25
In this way husbands ought to be loving their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself, for no man ever hated his own flesh; but he feeds and cherishes it, as the Christ also does the congregation, because we are members of his body. “For this reason a man will leave [his] father and [his] mother and he will stick to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This sacred secret is great. Now I am speaking with respect to Christ and the congregation. – Ephesians 5:28-32
YOU wives, be in subjection to [your] husbands, as it is becoming in [the] Lord. YOU husbands, keep on loving [your] wives and do not be bitterly angry with them. – Colossians 3:18,19

So that they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore, what God has yoked together let no man put apart.” – Matthew 19: 3-6

Drink water out of your own cistern, and tricklings out of the midst of your own well. Should your springs be scattered out of doors, [your] streams of water in the public squares themselves? Let them prove to be for you alone, and not for strangers with you. Let your water source prove to be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth, a lovable hind and a charming mountain goat. Let her own breasts intoxicate you at all times. With her love may you be in an ecstasy constantly. So why should you, my son, be in an ecstasy with a strange woman or embrace the bosom of a foreign woman? – Proverbs 5:15-20

26 Her mouth she has opened in wisdom, and the law of loving-kindness is upon her tongue.
