That would be even worse: spousal abandonment without going ahead and admitting what you are doing. That is hardly loving one's wife as Christ loved the church (e.g. Ephesians 5)! Nor, would it be fulfilling Paul's instruction from 1 Cor. 7 to have frequent sexual relations.
It is a very bad idea to try to garner an understanding of the Christian life from the Buddha. While there are certainly bits of Buddhism that echo Christian doctrine, much of it -- including its rejection of the goodness of the material world -- is entirely contrary to Scripture.
