50mm 1.4G or 50mm 1.8G?

Is there any compelling reason to use the 1.4G instead of 1.8G for portaiture?

I get that the 1.4 will provide greater bokeh wide open but is the difference significant enough to justify the additional cost? Any other worthwhile difference?

I prefer bokeh that isolates the subject well but doesn't render the background completely unrecognizeable.
