Trinitarianism

Plato's thesis seems to describe an ontological relationship:

" ... in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them."[Gen 1:26–7] For Trinitarians, emphasis in Genesis 1:26 is on the plurality in the Deity, and in 1:27 on the unity of the divine Essence. A possible interpretation of Genesis 1:26 is that God's relationships in the Trinity are mirrored in man by the ideal relationship between husband and wife, two persons becoming one flesh, ..."

SEE ALSO:

"According to the words of Jesus, married persons are in some sense no longer two but are joined into one. Therefore, Orthodox theologians also see the marriage relationship between a man and a woman to be an example of this sacred union. "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." Gen. 2:24. "Wherefore they are no more twain but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let no man put asunder." Matt. 19: 6"

BTW, speaking of relationships and the concept of (almost) ubiquitous nuclear families, the name 'Trinity' is the name (not coincidentally) selected for the first atomic testing site.

[ See the reference to Oppenheimer's explanation for origin: "Batter my heart, three person'd God;—." ]
