In our study of what is involved in marriage as God designed it we’ve considered the physical and rational dimensions of marriage. In his book, The Song of Songs, Solomon vividly describes the romantic/emotional dimension of marriage.  

Love is an experience which cannot be adequately defined. Solomon, however, gives a vivid description of the love shared with one’s beloved. 

True love burns intensely. No sacrifice is too great, no road too dangerous, no opposition too strong. Love searches until it finds and when it finds it holds fast. 

True love is also intimate. It delights in discovering all there is to know about the beloved and in being discovered by the beloved. This necessitates a mutual submission and possession between the partners. 

True love is also invincible. It cannot be conquered or subdued. It becomes purer and more precious when proved under pressure. 

Throughout the book there are titillating descriptions of the excitement and intimate moments enjoyed. There is also the pain of separation from time to time. Listen to just one description of the romantic/emotional dimension of marriage: “Place me like a seal over your heart, like a seal on your arm; for love is as strong as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave. It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame. Many waters cannot quench love; rivers cannot wash it away. If one were to give all the wealth of his house for love, it would be utterly scorned” (8:6-7). 

The strength of this dimension of marriage is captured in the assuring words, “My lover is mine and I am his” (2:16).
