The church has created cannon law regarding priests and celibacy. This is one among many cannon laws which have nothing to do with spirituality and communication with our creator and yet Celibate priests are asked to give advice on marriages and sexual issues of which the priest may not have any experience and certainly not in the area of raising children.
Another cannon law, In the Greek Orthodox church you may be married before getting ordained but if your wife dies while you are still young, you may not re-marry. Is this spirituality? Is the church cutting off it's head in spite of it's nose?
Peace and Love to all!
