[The Blessed One said:] "If both husband & wife want to see one another not only in the present life but also in the life to come, they should be in tune [with each other] in conviction, in tune in virtue, in tune in generosity, and in tune in discernment. Then they will see one another not only in the present life but also in the life to come."

Husband & wife, both of them
having conviction,
being responsive,
being restrained,
living by the Dhamma,
addressing each other
with loving words:
they benefit in manifold ways.
To them comes bliss.
Their enemies are dejected
when both are in tune in virtue.
Having followed the Dhamma here in this world,
both in tune in precepts & practices,
they delight in the world of the devas,
enjoying the pleasures they desire.

i think it is also important to remember we are in no way required to follow the path of the bodhisatta, he did what he did to discover the path to nibbana and once he was the buddha he created a sangha that was 4 fold: monks, nuns,laymen and laywomen, he never suggested that we all ordain.

Bees, bonnets. It really is not that big a deal unless we make it so.
The Buddha was born into an extreme body negative culture.
We have other issues as a culture.
