Legends of all three desert religions say they fell in love, two of the brightest minds in the world in those primitive days a thousand years before Christ when less than 1% of humanity could read. 
Notice their stance implies a wedding, a sacred marriage.  They were equals in both heart and mind.

Arabian and Jewish traditions go so far as to say the Queen of Sheba got pregnant by Solomon and had a child. He ruled Sheba after her and one of his descendants was asked to protect the Ark of the Covenant centuries later when Solomon’s Temple was destroyed.  So say the legends.
