So I know your probably thinking, “Man this girl is religious,” but I think there are a lot of things to be said about religious stuff. The argument these pictures make are that in a relationship, God is at the top and man and woman are at the bottom two corners. This symbol is popular among my church people because it represents a marital connection, as shown above. From my understanding, it means that as the man and woman grow closer to God, they will grow closer to each other. I believe this to be the visual argument. The counterargument might be either that it doesn’t work that way or that you grow farther apart than closer together.
I believe this to be true though because spiritually, two people have to be aligned in order to function as one in a marriage. I heard a saying once about how to know who is the one for you and a pastor said, “Just go as fast as you can for Jesus and whoever can keep up with you, is the one.” So in one way that this triangle can work, it could be that as you grow closer to God, your future spouse is doing the same and you find each other at the top. the first picture expresses this. This is for those who aren’t married yet and as part of your life run for God, you are moving toward that person who is meant for you. In this case, you may not know each other but both of you, the man and the woman, may be moving toward each other spiritually and eventually, when the right time comes, you will physically meet. Or in another case you may already know each other but aren’t thinking or prepared for marriage so you may be running the race to God side by side without knowing that you are meant for each other.
For the married couple, and as the second picture shows, this love triangle also works. Of course, not everyone is saved so people do get married for other reasons and then later on get saved as a couple or while they are still together. In this case, for “spiritual babies in Christ but married for many years” kind of couples, they could be connected in many ways together other than spiritually. This may help the couple to grow even closer to each other. As they learn and grow in God, it could improve their marriage, situations they are going through as a couple, financial problems, and hopefully strengthen their companionship and commitment to each other. It could also restore a marriage if it is on the verge of failure.
There are so many situations of married couples that this triangle metaphor can help with. Overall, the argument is that as a man and woman grow closer to God, they grow closer to each other. I add that it works this way whether two people are married or are aiming toward getting married.
