My take on marriage stems from my understanding of Genesis 2:24 "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." To understand that we must realize there was no operation removing Eve from Adan but it was dreamt [see https://hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/Understan...] and makes it to represent the separating of each individual's femininity from their masculinity.
Since I have remarried my femininity to masculinity I have no problem proposing to any girl. The following is "MY PROPOSAL."
I want to be your lover and desire you as mine
but not to be each other's puppet nor control their mind.
I want to be your friend to last all our life
but not me a henpecked husband nor you a rooster-spurred wife.
I want to love you with a love true, one that makes you free,
so your friends can enjoy you and mine can enjoy me.
I want to know I'm in your heart when you aren't around,
that it's said with love when you say to me "be not found".
I want your love to be so real you'll not say it's only for me,
that it be so when we're with someone else there'll be no jealousy.
I want not to rule your life nor for you to rule me,
my joy is all I ask, and the same I ask for thee.
So if you'll love me this way, this way that I love you,
with our loving each other free we'll know our love is true!
