When a man is loyal to his woman, she will adore him.
When a woman respects her man, he will adore her.
I think that most of us aspire to have that kind of love that Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell sung about in those duets like “Your Precious Love” and “If This World Were Mine”. We wonder if adoration indeed exists between a man and woman anymore in our society with the escalating divorce rate. It seems internal relational factors (respect, loyalty) are superseded with external societal factors (money, status, agendas).
Adoration is developed over time in a relationship. It is not something that will be present in the initial stages. However, you need to determine that your prospective mate is capable of respect and loyalty. Family background is relevant to this determination. It is important to know the health of the relationship between a man and his mother. Also, it is important to understand the health of the relationship between a woman and her father.
Sharing a deep love is wonderful. I have experienced it in my relational life. What I have discovered is that it is all of the natural, effortless acts of adoration that I appreciate most. Once, my guy and I were at a buffet-style BBQ with some of his friends. He was very attentive to me, so one of his friends commented to me, “He treats you like a queen.” Before I could reply my guy walks up with a plate of food and a drink for me. He overhears the comment and says to his friend, “Elaine isn’t a queen, she’s a goddess.” I smiled.
