Celibacy can be a choice in life or a condition imposed by circumstances.

While attending a marriage encounter weekend, Ray and his wife, Violet, listened to the instructor declare, "It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other." He addressed the men, "Can you name and describe your wife’s favorite flower?"

Ray leaned over, touched Violet’s arm gently and whispered, "It’s Pillsbury All-Purpose, isn’t it?"

Thus began Ray’s life of celibacy.
