"I don't think that we should be together. And, I've thought about it a lot and this is what's going to happen. OK. I'm going to keep pursuing what I'm pursuing. And, because I'm doing that, it's going to take up more and more of my time and I'm not going to be able to spend as much time with you. And, even when I do spend time with you, I'm going to be thinking about drumming. And, I'm going to be thinking about jazz music and my charts and all that. And because of that, you're going to start to resent me and you're going to tell me to ease up on the drumming and spend more time with you because you're not feeling important. And I'm not going to be able to do that. And, really, I'm going to start resenting you for even asking me to stop drumming and we're going to start hating each other. And, it's going to be, it's going to get very ugly. So, for those reasons, I'd rather just break it off clean." Andrew, Whiplash
If Andrew had said serving/loving God/others instead of drumming, then he would explain what Jesus meant by "there are also eunuchs who made themselves eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. He who is able to accept this, let him accept it."
"No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other or he will be devoted to one and despise the other." In this context, Jesus was talking about money. But, I think these wise words can apply to any conflicting interest, including spouse and kingdom.
