There’s a scene in Mad Men where Pete Campbell tried to make love to his wife, but she refused. With humiliation and embarrassment, he said something along this line: “You want to throw away the one thing that matters the most in this relationship?”
Glad to hear I am not the only one thinking this way. Love, kids, money, companionship, and everything else matter in a relationship, but that also is a major part of the package. I am not saying Pete should have done that with another married woman in his neighborhood, but I understand why he did it.
