Sometimes the older we get, the more complicated love becomes.
A man doesn’t have to wait until he marries before taking on the role of spiritual headship of his love relationship.
It is easier to lead the woman you plan on marrying in the right spiritual direction and get her to respect your spiritual headship when she sees that in you or see you exercising that role way before the marriage covenant is even entered into. And it may be more easier to sustain it way into marriage when you’ve cultivated it early in the relationship.
Yes, be romantic towards her; but be all the more spiritual towards her.
Women need leading; if you fail to lead her, she will lead you. Just don’t resent it when she eventually takes over your roles and you begin to feel (spiritually) irrelevant.
Many men are in serious love relationships but don’t command prayer times together for the relationship, they don’t command fastings, they don’t command Bible study and devotions; they don’t even pray themselves for the relationship! Yet, they want the best out of the relationship, they want everything to just go smoothly, they want spiritual and character compatibility or synchronization?
Well…maybe things do fall in place effortlessly for some people.

Indeed, so little do we know in life
So completely unaware
Of the workings of His supernatural hands
Behind the scenes He works
Tirelessly for our good
But the finished product only we chose to see
Never His many invisible acts of love
Done behind the scenes
Obviously, it’s always amazing
When His supernatural hands lift a man
From the ashes to a position of glory
From a life full of struggles
To a life full of bubbles
Blessed indeed is that man
Who acknowledges the hand of God
Only not in his rise to a better life
But in his everything
Blessed indeed is he
Who remembers that of his own strength
He could not have prevailed
That of his own accord
He could not have won the fight of life
