    I think that using masturbation as a way to show if someone is committed to their religion is not a good indicator. I feel whether one masturbates or not is more likely a sign that their needs are not being met in their current situation, than it is religious devotion. If someone has a high libido, they would be more likely to masturbate, and less likely to feel fulfilled in their celibate status. The same with mixed orientation marriage, I think the lack of masturbation likely points to sexual fulfillment in the marriage, and not to commitment to their spiritual beliefs. I think some of the story is missed by assuming that masturbation is making people unhappy. Even single and sexually active ranked higher than single and masturbating, so in terms of a sin factor it would not be that. I think it can also be a sign of someone who is trying super hard, i.e. not having sex, but finding it to be distressing. Being in the middle is not a sign of lack of devotion in my opinion, but the opposite, someone who has strong urges, or very homosexual, as opposed to a little more bisexual, and is not able to make it work. In other words masturbation is not a cause of the distress, but a sign of the distress of trying to live something someone is not physically and mentally able to live.
