Islam does not require celibacy as He understands the needs of humans.
What is a better way to express these feelings than with a life to after-life commitment?
Know that though what you look for, you will soon find the opposite except, the one who is looking for a pious companionship. The one you find for beauty, at first they will be beautiful, you will soon then see their flaws, that is right – no human is perfect.

A man as a creation is also equal to two females, as it has already been said.
But both, if they believe and do righteous deeds, they will have their reward by Him!
