Strained relationships and great undertakings

Last night, I picked up a book and read the preface at the beginning of the book, and the "Special Thanks" section caught my attention. The author thanked his wife and daughter for "putting up" with the authoring process. This isn't the first time I've seen that kind of thing written in a preface.

Does writing a book necessarily have to put a strain on the author's family?

I think whatever a person sets out to do requires others' sacrifices in some way, especially people who are close to you.

My gf complains about not going out or not enough time spent with her. I know it's because a lot of times I need to sharpen my instruments. That's some sacrifice in the long run.
