When Michal, David’s wife, rescued him from Saul, David fled, leaving her behind (1 Sam 19:12). Saul gave her as wife to Paltiel (1 Sam 25:44). After the death of Saul, David demanded his wife back. When they took Michal from Paltiel, “her husband went with her, weeping as he went.” (2 Sam 3:13-16). Such a poignant story. We wonder if David ever loved anyone.
