Men aren't necessities, they're luxuries.

Some men feel their masculinity can only be proven if they play out in their own life all the
locker-room stories, smugly confident that what a wife doesn't know won't hurt her. The

knowing, some of the magic of this relationship disappears. There are more men griping about
marriage who kicked the whole thing away themselves than there can ever be wives
deserving of blame.
Ronald Reagan, letter to his son just before his wedding, 1971
