together relationships can
provide the context for that
insight. The wedding sym-
bolizes a sense of creating a
shared history between the
couple. Six months after
their wedding, one couple
told me, "We didn't think
we would feel differently,
but we do. Now we really
know that we are together
for life."
But the spiritual element
of marriage goes beyond
the realization of per-
manence in the relation-
ship. The spiritual compo-
nent of marriage includes
God's presence not only in
the wedding, but in the
couple's relationship. This
is not a new idea; the rab-
bis knew the importance of
God in the marriage. To the
rabbis, the spiritual ele-
ment of marriage was the
sanctification of the cou-
ple's love by invoking God's
presence under the
chuppah.
The wedding ceremony
itself brings this dimension
into play. "Blessed art
thou, 0, Lord, who rejoices
with bridegroom and bride."
Somehow, when a couple in-
vokes God's blessing they
see their relationship in a
broader and more perma-
nent context. One couple
said, "By standing under
the chuppah, we felt more
secure that God was behind
us. We feel we are sharing
our lives for a purpose now
rather than when we were
living together." The
spiritual element can give a
sense of higher purpose to
a relationship that living
together cannot. At best,
living together before mar-
riage can provide the
groundwork for such feel-
ings, but only through mar-
riage can the couple ex-
perience the sacred aspect
of their relationship.
lbday's social climate
challenges us to rediscover
the sacred dimension of
marriage. We have to teach
our young people that mar-
riage is the ultimate ideal
for commitment in a rela-
tionship. If not, marriage
will cease to be the pin-
nacle of love and commit-
ment between a man and a
woman, and will, instead,
simply signify a legal for-
mula to satisfy societal
norms in regards to having
children.
This issue poses a major
challenge to the Jewish
community as we strive to
maintain the continuity of
our people. We, the com-
munity, must reach out to
couples who live together
and teach them that mar-
riage is an event that will

enrich their lives. Living
together as an alternative
to marriage cannot provide
them with the permanence
and purpose that marriage
adds to a relationship. The
key element is the perma-
nent commitment, and
public affirmation of it in a
religious context, which
serves as the lynchpin of
marriage. This is the
spiritual element of mar-
riage today. ■

Decorating Your
First Home

our first home or apart-
ment is a challenge that
can be exciting and creative
for you and your spouse.
.The goal is an interior plan
that makes the design
statement you desire but
allows for options. You can
be contemporary on a bud-
get and can use today's
styles and colors, but still
protect the value of your
investments. Being eclectic
allows you to take creative
advantage of contemporary
design elements.
The major advantage of
contemporary styling lies
in its minimal approach.
Monochromatic color
schemes create the illusion
