When a woman submits to a man, its the most precious gift she can give. Herself. Unreservedly. The man has to respect and honor that gift above all else. Even if he respects nothing else in the world, he must respect the woman in his care. Its his sworn duty to protect, honor and cherish his submissive. To take care of her and provide a safe haven. Someone who would put his own above his womans is no man.
