    "First comes love, then comes marriage then comes...."

    The singularity of  bikurim, the first  fig was compared to the singularity of  the person before marriage.

    The "harkava schinsyis", the admixture of two items, still distinct and retractable, like the bundles of wheat or  the salad, was compared to the new couple upon  marriage. 

    The "harkava misgis", the new creation, the chemical compound created from two items, where those items are no longer distinct, but have formed an irrectactible new third item, the dough, was compared to the ultimate marriage where the two have become one

    I would add that that the third level,  the harkava misgis   the irretractable new creation, where each has contributed but the new creation conceals and compounds the individual contributions,  not mentioned in  the  shiur,  is the child.

    And then that child grows up to be a new singularity, etc etc

    Even though a woman was also made in the likeness and image of The Holy One, bless His Holy Name, and with His Holy Spirit, why can the woman not lead and certain services, dutie, and mitzvos.

      Both individuals need to want it more than anything, and that is when it works...1 plus 1 becomes 1. With flour and water there is no resistance to the combination.
