Withholding sex in a relationship or marriage
This is not an angelic world most people have those crude animal sexual feelings and they are not as good as the monks and the nuns at repressing them. So a partner denied sex will very likely look for it elsewhere, it's difficult to sustain a sexless marriage. I wonder at times how was Mary expected to remain a virgin all her life as the Catholics believe, Joseph supposedly was old and beyond sexual desire but how was she a very young woman not supposed to have a full marital life?
