I really don't think there's much below the surface of that song.
Guy decides to cheat on and/or dump his wife/girlfriend (it's not clear which), so he places an ad in the personals (which actually used to be an actual thing in actual paper newspapers). In a crazy twist of fate, his "own lovely lady" is the one who answers the ad, and they realize they were meant for each other all along.

If there's any message, I guess it's to appreciate what you already have.

(For the record, I don't hate it. But it's surely not a masterpiece of 20th-century musicianship.)
