162. VI. THAT FROM THE FIRST DAYS OF MARRIAGE THIS CONJUNCTION IS EFFECTED SUCCESSIVELY, AND WITH THOSE WHO ARE IN LOVE TRULY CONJUGIAL, MORE AND MORE DEEPLY TO ETERNITY. The first heat of marriage does not conjoin, for it partakes of love of the sex which is a love belonging to the body and thence to the spirit, and what is in the spirit from the body does not stay long, while love which is in the body from the spirit does. Love which belongs to the spirit and from the spirit to the body is insinuated into the souls and minds of married partners together with friendship and confidence. When these two conjoin themselves with the first love of marriage, that love becomes conjugial; and this opens the breasts and breathes into them the sweets of love, doing this more and more deeply as friendship and confidence adjoin themselves to the primitive love, and the latter enters into them and they into it.
