In Ephesians 5:31 we read "For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh". What I have been told is that when people are involved outside of marriage is that they become this "one flesh" spiritually. Is this true in your thought on the matter? What troubles me about this idea, is what happens when it is not by freewill, and a child is abused, are they one flesh with their abuser? How about people that have been involved in freewill relationships prior to marriage with differenet people, are they still one flesh? Is there any precedent in the Bible that prayers to God can break this one flesh bond that is supposed to exist between people? I understand if this topic has to be moved to the respective private forums, yet the question is based around a Scripture, and the teaching of that Scripture.
