lf you’re starving and somebody throw you a cracker, you gonna be like this:
“Goddamn, that’s the best cracker I ever ate in my life! “That ain’t no regular cracker, was it? What was that, a Saltine? “Goddamn, that was delicious. “That wasn’t no Saltine. That was…That was a Ritz. That wasn’t a Ritz? “God, that was the best cracker
I ever ate in my life. “Can I have another one, please? Please, one more.”
From an Eddie Murphy stand-up routine – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRXq8TKq-a8
While Eddie was talking about dating a woman and waiting a long time to have sex with her, this applies to infrequent sex/ intimacy marriages as well as to a quickie in a low or infrequent sex/intimacy marriage.
The cracker (quickie) might taste good at that moment, but it’s not satisfying and fulfilling. It is empty calories for the person and the person giving it and the marriage – it has no nutritional benefits. While it can temporarily fill a person up, eventually the person who gets an occasional quickie instead of consistent meals of marital love, affection, and intimacy will figure out that that is his or her source of dissatisfaction and starvation. The marriage will eventually whither and die from malnutrition.
