My ‘Titanic’ Moment Of Romance

In 1997 the motion picture ‘Titanic’ was released.  It seemed to have the perfect plot for both men and women; a romance on a doomed ship. My wife and I wanted to go see the movie, but had heard from friends that there was one scene that we might find objectionable. The scene involved a brief view of female nudity. Some might have made a different choice, but after talking about it, my wife and I decided that we would go.

Being forwarned, we had an inkling as to when the objectionable scene would take place.  As the scene neared, I started to feel uncomfortable sitting next to my wife there in the theater. At that moment I whispered to her that I was going to the concession stand to get some candy.  So I got up and went out into the lobby. I stood out there for a few minutes, pondered my situation, and then returned to my seat to watch the ending of the movie.

After the movie was over and we were riding home, we talked about the movie and then she said this to me.

“Getting up and leaving the theater at that moment was one of the most romantic things you have ever done for me. I can’t tell you how respected I felt.”

Well, perhaps I never should have taken her to the movie at all. That being said, over the years I have tried to do many things to romance my wife. Sometimes I have been creative and sometimes I have been boring, like wining and dining her with flowers, candy, and other gifts. But I will never forget that one moment of ‘titanic romance’ that so impressed my wife. That experience has left me wondering why I don’t learn that showing her the respect she deserves is the best gift a man can give to the woman he loves.  And the words of Paul  are still as wise as they were when he wrote them to the Ephesians:

“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church…”
