Meaning of the Idiom and its use
Zvi always felt alone. He felt as if he would never find a partner, but then he met Zellah, a woman who is his equal in all ways. Zellah felt the same and one day she said to Zvi, “We are a match made in heaven.”
The idiom “a match made in heaven” means that two people are perfect for each other in every way. And, a match made in heaven will have a blissful marriage.
Where does it come from? The idiom comes from a belief that divine forces had a hand in making two people compatible. Couples who are a match made in heaven might say, “Perhaps it was the angels who paired us up.” Sadly, the origin of the saying is unknown.
To put it in practice, you may say, “My aunt and uncle are a match made in heaven,” or, “Look at that elderly couple, they are a match made in heaven.”
