This verse is a parallel to the verse in which Hashem (God) says, “It is not good for man to be alone; I will make a fitting helper for him” (Genesis 2:18). God wants man to find a wife who will serve as his partner in life. When he does, Hashem will bless that union, as it fulfills His will. The Hebrew word for ‘man’ is eesh (איש), and the word for ‘woman’ is eeshah (אשה). The two words share two out of three Hebrew letters, א and ש. The other two letters, י and ה, spell one of the names of God. The Sages teach that when man and woman unite in marriage and work together, the presence of the Lord resides with them.
