And throughout Christian history, Ruth’s vow to Naomi has been used to illustrate the nature of the marriage covenant. These words are often read at Christian wedding ceremonies and used in sermons to illustrate the ideal love that spouses should have for one another. The fact that these words were originally spoken by one woman to another tells us a lot about how God feels about same-gender relationships.

it’s the same language, but i don’t believe they are the same exact words. i.e. i know genesis 2:23 is the “flesh of my flesh, one of my bones,” piece. i think that the section in Ruth reads, “wherever you go, I will go…” but i’m not looking it up.
