Whether it’s for an ailing mother and aunt, or a young son who needs his dad, it touches my heart to see professional athletes who can be real men more so off the field than on. It can’t be easy to give up so much for what some people might consider so little.
Couples should value each other so much that they actually reverence each other, almost to the point that they could genuflect before their spouses.

So, too, are our spouses, although not in the same form, ontologically speaking.
