He continued to be in the marriage because something is more to him than those.

I am in the same boat as holding and I can tell you that my responsibility to raise healthy productive kids is more important.

I don't see how these two statements disagree.

To say that he stayed because something in his M was more important than sex is shortsided.

I don't think this is what JM said. He said he stayed in the M because something was more important, not he stayed because something in the M was more important than sex". Wow, amazing how changing the location of one phrase changes the meaning!

A selfish person would have left his kids and wife to find a more sexually fulfilling M, but that is not what a responsible father does.

And, so, that responsible father stays in the M because his role as a father is more important to him. I think that doesn't disagree with what JM said.
