Yes...your appearance looks better. If you have a wife, it will prevent you from jeopardizing your relationship. Breaking up a family creates heavy karma because a family is a unit of society. If every family does that, then we will have chaos. That's what happening now in the modern world. Too many divorces-children are not brought up good because of that. Then children will bring chaos to society...serial killers, rapists, pedophiles, etc.
From the practical standpoint of East Asian Buddhism, monks need to refrain from celibacy.
In generally practitioners should not actively seek for a union. But if it comes naturally or mutually, it is not right to reject either. In this case, take the middle path. Don't be attached deeply to it. The Mahayana teaching is not holding on to any side-rejection or acceptance, nirvana or samsara, etc.
Beginners should uphold all precepts dearly.
