The strength of a woman's identity is not dependent on a man's desire to be a controlling factor in her life. Romantic fascinations of an exotic sort notwithstanding, the relationship that needs to be understood from a Christian perspective is the spiritual connection that gives strength to the emotional search for kindred thinking in living a fulfilling life subject to the Savior. One need not lose their identity in living for the Savior; but living in submission to the Savior's will in obedience to His commandment of love is what should be the desire of every believer.
Once that is established, then finding an appropriate life with a like-minded man is what should be sought after. Anything less than that is a search of futility.
Look at all the women of the Gospels that were devoted to the Savior, not for any other purposes than being subjected the Spirit of His presence. They did not give up their identity, but remained true to their devotion to Him as their LORD of eternity.
