According to Carl Jung, every man must embrace his own feminine aspect (anima) and every woman must embrace her own masculine aspect (animus). The most fundamental marriage that an individual can achieve is of an inner nature it is the alchemical marriage, the mysterious mystical union within. A balance of the male and female polarities within
The purpose of marriage is for two separate individuals to become one, therefore by having a good husband and a good wife which our soul can love, listen to, understand and mirror would help in quickening the attainment of this state within.
If the soul is able to balance the male and female polarities within through understanding, then then the Spirit of God within would find it easier to become one with the Soul of the man or the woman for when two opposites come together in harmony there results a perfect third.
