Srimad Bhagavatam Canto-11, Chapter-08, Text-36
kiyat priyam te vyabhajan
kama ye kama-da narah
ady-antavanto bharyaya
deva va kala-vidrutah

Men provide sense gratification for women, but all these men, and even the demigods in heaven, have a beginning and an end. They are all temporary creations who will be dragged away by time. Therefore how much actual pleasure or happiness could any of them ever give to their wives?

In this material world everyone is basically pursuing his personal sense gratification, and thus everyone is being ruined by the influence of time. On the material platform no one actually helps anyone else. So-called material love is simply a cheating process, as the lady Pingala is now discovering.
