'...the reflective, faithful celibate and the reflective, faithful married person may have more in common - by way of prayerful surrendering of inevitably thwarted desire to God - than the unreflective or faithless celibate, or the carelessly happy, or indeed unhappily careless, married person.' 
Sarah Coakley, The New Asceticism: Sexuality, Gender and the Quest for God, p.39.
