Love, commitment and dedication mean exactly that you're willing to put your partner's needs ahead of your own. Nobody needs a marriage if they itend to show love only on days they feel like it. Without any further discussion or investigation, I take for granted that any woman I see would be willing to give herself to me if she happened to feel like it. I could get a deeper commitment than that from a prostitute. I love my family and I attend to their needs to the best of my ability regardless of how I happen to feel. It doesn't feel oppressive and I'm not resentful to do it. It's what I promised my wife when I married and it's the job I took on when I decided to be a father. I don't hate my kids because they get hungry. I don't hate my wife if she gets sick, scared, lonely, or horny. These are all normal human needs. If I didn't want to be bothered by others' needs, I should have stayed single. I don't have the right to turn another innocent human into a cold, celibate freak of nature and nobody has the right to turn me into one. Trying to do so is inhuman and just plain evil. If an unexpected illness or accident renders my wife incapable of fulfilling all her promises, I'll roll with it. I'll still expect that she participate in the marriage the best she can considering her limitations. Marriage isn't a form of welfare. It's not winning the lottery. She's not a guest and this aint a resort. She's not baggage or a passenger. She's my partner and she can row, steer, or get out of the canoe.
