Maybe in the future that will change and maybe not, but I'm solid with things as they are right now.
I don't see any value in this kind of sacrifice. She is getting someone who is half halfheartedly committed to living the lifestyle she is living, you are getting someone who fundamentally differs in how they view love and only accepts you because you pretend to be ok with it. You consider it honorable and that seems to be enough to get you through, but I wouldn't wish that kind of false life on someone I don't like.
Sorry, I'm not trying to be a dick, I'm just baffled.
