Practically speaking, this impinges on every single decision you have to make as a married couple. God did not create man alone to be competent to fulfill his calling to image God.
For example, how do you decide what you should do at any point in your life? He created man and woman in relationship to do that.
If we don’t acknowledge that we’re ruling God’s rule, then we’re ruling under the rule of an idol, or a combination of a whole series of idols. He needs a suitable helper in order to do that, so Eve is provided so that together they will fulfill God’s calling to bring glory to his name under his rule. “It is not good for man to be alone” isn’t true primarily because man is lonely: it’s true because he’s incompetent, even before the Fall.
A BRIEF BIBLICAL THEOLOGY My hope is that this article will be of some use to people in such a situation, but of more use to the Christian who, long before the temptation arises, needs to make a stronger resolve not to get romantically involved with a non-Christian.
And just to be clear: getting romantically involved is likely to happen if you spend a great deal of time with someone of the opposite sex one-on-one.
If they’re really interested in the gospel, they’ll be just as delighted to hear about it from them as from you.
If the Lord wants you to be married, he’ll make it clear that it would be possible for you to pursue such a relationship by them coming to faith!
