Protegé, yes. Adopted daughter, no. There's never been any indication of that. It would not be any kind of creepy for Spock and Saavik to be married.
Spock called Saavik Saavikam in TWOK and in my mind that's him treating Saavik as some kind of daughter.
And teacher/student that's sort if creepy too
I assumed Savikam was the Vulcan pronunciation of Saavik.
Yes, never in the course of history has a professor ended up marrying one of their previous students. No, wait, EVERY Professor who has ever been married did so to one of their previous students.
