A Woman’s Love: The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Steve Harvey: Have you ever tried to out-give a woman?

Male Caller: No

Steve Harvey: Did you win?

Male Caller: No

Steve Harvey: Right, cause you will never out-give a woman. The least you can do is provide for her: pay for her meals and whatever else she needs. You cannot put a price tag on the amount of love and support she’ll give you in return. Sir, it’s priceless. So why are you complaining?

This is a conversation that took place on the Steve Harvey Morning Show a couple weeks ago. Say what you want to about Steve Harvey, but I respect the advice and help he offers women of all ages. His no-nonsense delivery makes it clear that women (and men) need to take a different perspective on how we approach relationships.

The caller mentioned above called the Show to complain about the woman he was dating. She required him to pay for her meals and buy her gifts and he didn’t feel that it was appropriate that he be her provider. He felt that she was not doing anything in return and as a result, he was becoming frustrated.

Steve’s argument above was right on-point. Women are amazing givers. An old theory  suggests that women should marry a man who loves her slightly more than she loves him. According to this theory, a marriage with this kind of man will ensure that he will give as much as she does.

But even with this, I still think a woman will out-give a man on any given day. Our love is pure. It is unwavering. It is the closest thing a man will come to unconditional love on earth.
