It is the goal of love that two hearts become one

    Hi

    I am giving a speech at my friends wedding in a couple of weeks. A few years ago I heard a phrase which was:

    "It is the goal of love that two hearts become one"

    I'd love to be able to close my speech with that in latin, effectively to summarise their union.

    If a translation can be provided, that would be amazing. Thank you.

    Hi,

    I would suggest:

    Amor eo spectat, ut animi duo unus fiant.

    The word I've used to translate "heart" here doesn't mean literally the heart, but more like the mind/soul/spirit. This is more common in Latin for the figurative meaning of "heart". However, if for some reason the physical meaning of heart is important to you as well, this would be acceptable too:

    Amor eo spectat, ut corda duo unum fiant.
