Adam as they were first known as represent God in His totality. God created the first man in his image and took the first woman out of that man which means she was a representation and part of God as well.
Adam as they were both known before the “fall” had dominion over Eden. It was their given kingdom they ruled over just as God rules over Heaven.
Beyond the fall when each a husband and wife accepts Christ into their lives and allows the Holy Spirit to dwell within them they become representations of God on Earth. When they come together as one sexual they reconnect with the original wholeness of one that God first created. We are to treat each other with the same love that God shows us, not trying to destroy each other, but be christlike in our very nature towards each other.
