What do you mean by "your surrogate lover"? That an actual human being is
sort of a flesh-and-blood prop standing in for the imagined ideal lover? In
this sense, a "divine partner" provides a self-protective distancing from a
human partner, who is perceived as inadequate or never quite good enough
compared to the ideal. Don't think that this isn't felt by the human lover,
if only on subtle levels.

Although it isn't the most joyful aspect of partnership, I find that the ways
in which my living, "flawed" human partner challenges and disappoints me
presents me with the greatest opportunities to expand my awareness and inner
growth. Otherwise, I would remain much more stuck in many of my
ego-fixations. I love myself more because of my husband's love for me; I
know myself deeper because of his understanding of me; and I am more aware of
and charitable toward my own shortcomings because of his influence on me.
These are my gifts to him in our relationship also.
