Which is Better? Getting Married or Staying Single?

Which is Better? Getting Married or Staying Single?
Staying single, you are free to do anything you want and spend a lot of time to your hobbies, friends, and all your other activities while in geeting married, there is a lot of things needs to be considered. These are your time, commitment, emotion, patience, and more.

That is why, for me, staying single is better if you are not ready to get married.

how about you? What are your thoughts? Geeting married or staying single?

Getting married has a lot of perks too. Sharing exciting activities with your partner is one way to spend your vacation. Having someone to share your feelings and your ideas. Someone to plan your life with. But I agree with you that we should not rush into marriage unless you are ready, and your partner is ready (both financially and emotionally). But for me, getting married is better IF you have found someone you could rely on. Someone who could understand you. Someone you communicate to. Because with that someone, raising a family would not just make things easier to work out--but it would feel more of a blessing.

There is no single answer to this question. The answer depends on the person you ask. If you ask this question to a person happily married, he will always say getting married is better. If you ask to a person who is stuck in bad marriage, he will say staying single is better. It takes a lot of maintain the marriage, you and your partner should be ready to give and take.

I agree. It all depends on the situation a person is in. There is no one right answer on whether being single is better or are you better off being married. It's a matter of preference and by how the individual has been affected by their past and present relationships.

I have noticed that the young people are now matured in thinking when it comes to marriage. In the olden days it was common to see a young couple getting married but now I have nephews and nieces who are nearing 30 but still have no plans of marrying. They say that they are enjoying their single life because there is total freedom. They know that they have to adjust their lifestyle when they get married and that’s probably the reason why they are hesitating on marriage.

I am single, but I think getting married is better. If you are in the right age, you would want ti settled down with someone who loves you and someonw you love. If you are married and happy, you'll have a person who will always be there for you, a sister, a best friend and a life long partner.

I am no hater but trust me, not everything will be smooth sailing, and it's not like a children's novel that it has a guaranteed happily ever after ending. I think marriage is security for women and slavery for men. Give it time, and it will disappear someday. Haha!

You stated wrongly here. To me there is nothing like staying single. You get married frequently for hours or days. You are worse than a corpse because you are prone to diseases and overspending.

Married people have settled. They have what they want on request. They walk together sharing problems and excitements

Getting married does not mean you have a sexual partner for a few hours. Getting married means a commitment to stay together until death. marriage is not all about sexual gratification, it is about finding true pleasure and happiness.

That is right. Getting married is not about sexual activities between two partners it is totally about building a family in the future. Taking care each other and love unconditionally. You need also to be together no matter what and whatever the problem would be.

I honestly want to stay single. I actually don't want to widen my responsibilities in the future. I might sound selfish, but believe me, I'm not. Actually, I'm not a healthy person, and I don't know what will happen in the future, I don't want to leave my husband and children too early if ever I get married and be gone someday. Anyway, God works in ways we cannot imagine.

Being single or getting married really depends on the person. Each has it's advantages and disadvantages. Single life entails more freedom, independence while marriage spells commitment not just to your partner but also to your children. I'm married and i love it. If you think that you have found the right one then don't be afraid to get married. It may not be a bed of roses everytime, it may not feels like heaven all the time but having a family of your own is one of the best experience one can have. Just make sure that you are 100% committed emotionally, physically, financially. But of course, there is nothing wrong with being single. Staying single is a choice. Independence at it's finest.

Which freedom are you talking about? Drinking sprees or indulging into weird behavior? There are single people who do not have freedom in life unless you are talking about engaging in multiple relationship? I do not believe there is no freedom.

I would prefer to get married. I can say that I pove the idea of being in love. Being with someone whom you can share your thoughts and experiences are something that is very special. Being committed to one person is like having meaning to continue in life. He becomes my inspiration and I become his inspiration. And I think it's much better to have a home in somone's arms.

I'm sorry for saying this, but I don't see the point of getting married. If you genuinely love the person, sure, do feel free to spend the rest of your life with him/her. You don't have to pay $5 - $10k on a wedding. You can get married without officially getting married. If you want you can buy the rings as a symbol of your love.? What the hell? LOL.

I'm married and it didn't cost anywhere near that...we just got married in Vegas because we lived there at the time. A couple of hundred bucks and that was it. It wasn't about a flashy ceremony to us. It was about a commitment, about joining together. Each to their own though!

Well,this differs from country to country. Some culture will only recognize a marriage when all the ceremonial tradition have not been fulfilled like in my country,just buying a ring and wearing with your partner will not cut it. All the tradition must be followed.

I think this is the whole essence of marriage. For companionship, God created us man and woman for each other so that we can share and be for one another.It not compulsory to be married though but it the right thing to do than fornicating with different people I believe.

That's a pretty cynical way to look at things - I mean, you're more than welcome to stay single and that's your prerogative, but you don't need to diss the alternative so heavily. There's plenty of great reasons to get married. I used to be cynical towards marriage until I met my husband, too. Maybe you just haven't found the right person! :)

I am single but I want to get married. One of my dreams is to have my own family. I want to have kids and be a good wife for my future husband. It is great to know if there are singles who are still happy but I would be happier to get married and have someone till my last day.

Getting married is biblical especially if one is up to the marriageable age,it helps us fulfill God's words of having an Adam for every eve and vice versa. Again, getting married and raising kids in it,is the right way to go than having or being just a baby daddy or mummy.I love to stay married for companionship and one to share my world with.

I've been married for a long time and reminiscing my single days I would say that being married is so much better. Being single is fun but after years of single life I became bored, that's why I got married in the first place. Married life was tough in the beginning but after I got used to it, understanding my wife, raising kids is really hard but fulfilling.

According to the scriptures, man is not meant to be alone and this is one of the reasons we should always work towards having companions that will help us to build a better life. I have noticed that once you get the right person, your life will always turn out for the better while going with the wrong person will always bring misery and pains to us.

Scriptures and real life is lot different. Scriptures don't pay bills. We have to work harder and pay bills. So just because scriptures say does not make life easy or bad. It's just that scriptures can't dictate our way of life. I think we have to take life more or less realistic way if possible. That's how it should be learned if you ask me.

I want to believe that the scriptures dictate a lot of things for us, marriage inclusive unless one isn't a believer but if one is then working with the words in the scripture should be paramount. Yes, marriage can't pay bills but God can help provide all our needs all we need do is just to believe. Marriage in itself isn't bad but the attitude of those in the marriage.

God founded marriage to bond a man and a woman and considered as one. I think if a couple lives a God-centered life, the marriage will be successful. There are really great challenges that comes along with marriage. Without the guidance of the words of God, it can easily be broken.

I don’t know honestly. Staying single means you you can embark easily on adventures without worry. You are not really responsible to another human. You will not have restrictions. Marriage means stability. You will have someone take care of you when you get old. You will never be alone. I guess I want a family not just marriage. I want to have children in yhe future.

Yes having marriage means gaining family. You can't have your own family if you are a single person. And what you are pointing out with being a single is real. But in the end those embarking moments of yours will be sad and you will going to find a family to have.

Personally, I prefer being single because I'm still young and I do believe that at this generation where everything is expensive and there's too much population, I guess it's much better to stay alone and be contended with my family and friends instead of committing myself to someone whom I might just hurt because of my in-competencies.

Well right now I am happily single and enjoying my singlehood thoroughly, so I will obviously vote for being single. I am not opposed to the idea of marriage but have stayed away from it till now. marrying someone involves a lot of responsibility and dedication. Marriage can, however, make a person feel overwhelmed if he or she is not ready to accept the sudden change in their life. Singlehood means freedom, it means independence and enjoying the life on your own. I think it is better to remain single and enjoy your life instead of taking the risk of getting married.

I think both are equal and have their own advantages and disadvantages. I would prefer to get married just for the company but I get that it comes with a lot of responsibilities that single people don't have to deal with. I could be okay with either and whatever happens in my future I will accept but I think I would prefer to be married but it really has to be the right person because I don't want to have to put up with the disadvantages if it's someone I don't like that much.

I am single in my 30s. I have realized that staying single is lot better. Most of the women are just financial leech off you. And they add no value even if they work on their own. Most of the time they work for their own self and their family. They never have our family factor but more like guy should pay for everything and they can take everything from him. Offer him nothing. That is what I have learned from the marriage so far. I am happy god kept me single. Saved me from getting harassed.

Marriage is more than what you just listed, I get it that it is your life but you should look at the deeper meaning of marriage,it more than just getting hitched to someone and getting harassed daily.

Best for me is being married. Why? Because it is what the bible tells us. It is not a command to really follow or a sin if we not do but at least the bible tells us that we are made to be partner with some one. And being married actually gives more happines to us. One good thing to it is having your own family that you will be together throughout your life.

I think the best part of being a human is having their own family and married the right one. I think it is better to have someone in your life than being alone in the rest of your life. Being alone is like nobody there to guide and take care of you when you get sick and grow older. Unlike having a family, you have someone who will be there for you anytime. Somebody who will help you and love you all the way.

It is okay to stay for single if it is what you wanted. It depends on how you look marriage and how important it is in people lives. It is safe to say that we wanted to be single because we are not ready and not yet preferred to have a life partner. And that is right because it is a big obligation. But when we are older, that is the time you realize that you should choose to get marry instead of being single forever.

In my opinion being single too long can be lonely and that being married is much more enjoyable. I think getting married is really a trait of maturity. Having your own family is not an easy task but it's what separates men from boys.

I do respect your opinion but may I beg to disagree? Being married is not a requirement to start a family, you see we're talking about the ceremony here, with the contract and all of that and not only the idea itself. Modern men are not anti-marriage I believe, Do they want to find the right women and get married? Sure. These MEN, not BOYS, are just not that naive to get into a contract that will destroy them or leave them emotionally and maybe financially drained.

I believe that there will come a point where a person will realize what they really want, to be single or married. When you are still younger, it is normal to set aside getting married simply because you are enjoying or you still have a lot of plans you want to achieve in life. But there will be a time where you have done all of this and still feel that there is something lacking. Being married doesn't mean the end of all of the things you wanted to do, it is just continuing it but having someone to celebrate small victories and achievements.

Yes that is true. Time will come definitely for you to decide and it is not easy decision after all. Getting married is not as easy as to say it but it has lots of obligation. You also not taking care just for yourself but as well as your partner and your future children. It is not all about you anymore but all about your family after all.

I guess the answer will depend on one's personal circumstances. Getting married and raising our own family is the norm. Of course, it comes with responsibilities and compromises. For many, marriage is something inevitable. Having one's own family is usually the next step after enjoying one's single life. Some will defer it for financial and other reasons and some can't get married because they haven't met the right one. It can be lonely down the stretch not to have a partner in life but it is better to remain single if you can't find someone who will love you and cherish you as a partner for better or worse.

Whatever your decision is, it must be respected. You may stay single for a reason, but you don't deserve the criticisms of people. Every human has to be open-minded and just be happy for their friends, family or relatives. Also, if one gets married, just be happy for him or her. Don't go around talking about how undeserving one is to the other.

I'm at a point in my life where either is okay. Off course I enjoy sharing my life with someone. But either way I'm fine. The trick to everything is to be self reliant. If you can support yourself and your kids, then you are good whichever situation you find yourself in.Marriage should not be an avenue for you to support yourself for either party. That is the trick to everything. You should be in a marriage because you enjoy the other persons company, not because you have to stay married to support yourself financially.

Why do i choose married than being single? Because having a partner means you will have someone to be with you when you are old. Someone that will take care of you and that is the best thing to happen. Grow old with your love one. And plus, you will have the chance to have children that will also be with you as you grow older.

You can still love someone, start a family, and grow old with them without ever getting married. I assume we're talking about the ceremony here, the event in which you go to church and say your vows to one another, and not only the idea itself.

I guess it's really up to a person to choose whether to get married or stay single. A couple can get married when the time is right, meaning if they are ready for each others stuff and saved up for their future and really want to be together for the rest of their lives. Planning is essential as well for a couple who really want to get married. For me, I want to get married and not stay single for the rest of my days. I believe that most people don't want to be alone when they get old and its sweet that one of the benefits of getting married is both have to care for each other if the love is really there.

Getting married is one of the best decision that I made in my life. Although my married life may not be perfect but still having a family has given me joy and satisfaction. But this really depends on the person you are getting married with. Being married is good but before making decisions on settlinh down.

I think in this point of my life, I wouldn't choose marriage because I still have lots of things I want to do. I can't do all those things when I'm tied to a ball and chain. I'm only 22 and I think that's what marriage is. I think that a person should only get married when they have done all the stuff they want to do and can't do again once married. But I wouldn't single out the possibility of getting married. I want to settle down to like most people. Just not the right time. I actually envy the people who get married at a young age. For them to pull the trigger like that is either stupid or just plain genius.

Ive always thought that this question would depend on your circumstances. Its always going to differ from person to person. However I have always thought getting married is the better of the two. To everyone saying as someone who is single you can go out and travel and have adventures, but if you are married you get to do it with someone you love, which I think makes the experiences so much better.

Getting married is not an easy task, because you are obligated on every move that you are going to make, like for example, you can't do anything you always do on the time that you are single like it always has a limit. Tho being married is the most precious thing you will ever experience in life because that's the time you will both say I do and show your love in the front of GOD.

Humans are made to procreate. In order to live our lives to the fullest, we must submit ourselves into marriage. Why? Because you were given ample time to live your life alone for years (that is if you decided not to get married too early) and have already established a life with stability. I am a firm believer that genuine happiness can be achieved when you're accompanied by someone dear to you along your journey. If you experienced how beautiful and wonderful life is growing up with a family, you wouldn't be greedy enough to give up or neglect the ability you have as a human person to create one too.

In my experience, I am now single but I do like to be on a marriage. Why do I stay single if I don't want to be forever single? It is because I wait for the time that I can actually raise up a family. For my status now I know I can't be a father because I am still making my self ready. So being single is just for a mean time and the real plan I want is to be married.

Getting married is far better than staying single. Although staying single has many benefits that married couples are envious of, they are far outweighed by married life. The obvious and usual argument for single life is freedom and the cost of starting a family. But to me, living a happy life with our loved ones with us all the time is very fulfilling both psychologically and spiritually.

I am single at this age of 30+ but honestly I don't think the question should be which is better. As it would depend per individual. What matters is where you are happy at. Being single and being married both have it's perks. For some they prefer to be single because they have more freedom, for some they rather have someone with them. It's a matter of choice and perspective.

There's something about being single that tends to make one feel free; free from responsibilities, family cares, demands and all that. These trappings can make one want to remain single. However, marriage on the other hand has a way of making one feel loved. Honestly, the kind of intimacy that marriage brings with it, which most of us desire, is such that we cannot find in being single. In addition, marriage is not all about responsibilities,family cares and duties, and all that; it is also about team play,synergy, mutual love, interdependence, and unity. If a single person can chase a thousand, a married person can chase ten thousand.

I went to the supermarket the other day and overheard a couple (I assume they're married) talking while standing in line. The man asked his wife politely "can we get brand X mayonnaise today instead of brand Y?" The wife answered rather passive-aggressively "you know which one we always get."

That's the level of modern men have degenerated into people. Asking their woman if they're allowed to buy their very own brand of mayonnaise.?

Human beings are social animals and hence we crave for company of others. We need someone to talk to at home. We feel the need for a companion with whom we can share our problems, concerns, fears, happy moments. We all need a shoulder to cry on preferably at home :P

And sometimes we need someone to argue/fight with too!

And marriage makes both the partners more mature and more responsible especially after they have kids. Children help parents grow as individuals and mature at a faster rate than otherwise! Children at home makes life wonderful experience that can be cherished for a long time. They complete our lives.

So all in all marriage is to be preferred than being single.

This is a hard question, it needs to be based on the person who is asking. Some people is happy just by themselves surrounded by their family and friends, they're happy without commitment and that's fine. But some people do wish to find love, a partner. Someone to marry and have kids with so that they can build they're own family. Both ways are normal, I think if someone is asking this question they should go with what they think makes them happy. I'm happy with my partner and I wish to get married soon, but I was also happy when I was single but there was something missing. Now I've found it, so for me I would love to get married.

As a married person commenting on this, I say getting married is better. But as a person who's been married for 10 years now with two children, I still daydream about what my life would be if I stayed single. But if that was my reality, I think I would daydream more about the possibility of me having a family. Know what I mean? The ultimate purpose of a person is to have children and pass on their genes, sounds simple, but it's the simple truth. Some find purpose in other important things, to the tune of changing the world. But there are lots of married people who did that as well. But still, it would be nice to get home to a house with nothing but your toys and do whatever you like after a hard day's work.

Getting married is better. It allows you to have dependency with your spouse and have someone to count on. I am not yet married but based on what I have observed on my close family relatives, it really is better to have someone with you until the end. Married life may be hard and may get tiring at times. But when things get really rough in the outside world, your spouse is the first person you could count on. Also, if you get married already, you are getting a stronger bond with the person you want to be with until the very end. It allows you to build more foundations and memories that both of you will cherish once you get older. My uncle and aunt enjoys their married life and I can see that nothing can break them apart anymore. You just need to love your partner and your family more.

Staying single, for now. Not exactly staying single, but take time to enjoy your life first. No need to be in a rush. Enjoy life, travel, fall in love, earn for your dream car, work for your dream house, buy the luxury items you want. Just let fate work its way. Sometimes, you also have to pick the right partner in life. You might just be fooled by the idea of love and is not really in love. Get stable first, assess everything, observe if she really is fitted to be your wife. Maybe while you are on your way to getting stable, you'll get to know her even more and you might be able to see if she is really the person you want to marry. We all have to take time before deciding. To put it simply, it is like earning for your dream car and realizing that something is even better as you save up.

Very informative, and I couldn't agree more. I still see marriage as an obligation, not a romantic devotion. True love and passion don't last very long.?

I agree with you. We just have to enjoy life and let things flow smoothly and naturally. Don't push yourself being married just because you don't want to age alone. Enjoy everything while you can, and when the time comes, enjoy it as well. Well, I respect every decision of everyone though.

Depends on one's circumstances. Marriage is what society has ordained as being a normal thing to do but not all get this opportunity. It is better to stay single than get into a partnership just because society wants it that way. Unless one is sure that the partner will provide the kind of happiness one hopes for it is better to remain single.

How come if you're single most people think there's something mentally wrong with you?

I will say that people are starting to think less about being single. I was once told by a good friend that I'm smart for being 30, single and focusing solely on myself. In fact, a lot of people are starting to think a 30 year old married is too young. So luckily that's progressing

This solely depends on an individual. Personally, I will go with being single until I am extremely ready for marriage. However, my friends who are already married are telling me marriage is sweet, while I am seeing so many break-ups and infidelity cases. I would rather remain single, rather than rush to marry and then start cheating.

This really would depend on the person. By choosing to stay single, you can focus on yourself and pursue your career to the fullest. Meanwhile, by choosing to get married, you become blessed with the gift of family. For me, I would choose to get married - as a family-oriented person, I simply cannot choose my career over my family. This doesn't mean I won't pursue my career at all, it's just that I will be prioritizing my family over my profession.

I mean it all the depends on your own personality. The answer is going to be different for each individual. However, people also need to keep in mind that both have their upsides and downsides. Marriage is great for people who have trouble being alone, which honestly is a lot of people. Having a companion to stick things out with you and keep you company can be an amazing benefit. However, people also obviously have their individual views and this can lead to conflicts in personal relationships. Being single is great because you can focus on yourself 100%, but it also comes with the downside that things can get lonely sometimes. Each has their ups and downs.

Many people wanted to get married and not be alone. Living alone is one of the saddest thing that people can do. Having in a married life opens a new door to build a family of yours.

Being single. You are your own boss. You get to choose what you want and when you want it. You can build yourself a really good life. Study, Travel, Build a business. Your happiness depends on you. You can travel with a group of friends and not be bombarded with questions later about what happened.. (in Vegas) Yes, sex may be random at times if you are promiscuous. As long as you get it when you want it. I rather you wait.. You have only one responsibility.. You, and maybe your parents. There is no need for a second opinion. You can choose who you want in your life. You have all these people to choose from. Yes, you maybe lonely. But I am sure you'll have friends and family. You can go back to school. You can do anything.

I think it really depends on the person and what their life preferences are. Staying single has a lot of advantages, but many people enjoy the feeling of having a life partner at their side. I think both offer some really solid advantages and disadvantages. When you're single you have the freedom to do whatever you want, but also must face the consequences of your actions mostly alone. (Good) Marriages offer a solid pillar of support that make life's tragedies and turmoil more bearable. On the flip side, if the marriage is weak it may worsen whatever challenge you face, and it puts you in a vulnerable position to get your heart broken.

It would be very nice if I can provide my kids a simple life that they have a father and they legally belong to parents. Life would be much easier for my kids if that will be the case.

I think staying single is the way to go because you have more freedom in your life, and get to choose everything you want to do or pursue. Although you do miss out on that intimate part of being in a committed relationship, you can still partially enjoy this without necessarily being in a relationship[.

To be single means less responsibility and more freedom while getting married is the opposite that you have more responsibility and less freedom. I had enjoyed my single days especially when I was young and with no job yet. But in my adult years, the best part of my life was in getting married and having a family. There is a different kind of happiness when you have a family to speak of.

I get what you mean. Young ones would always prefer to be single because of the freedom that it brings. As of the moment, I am contented with being single and I do not wish to be married any sooner.

I agree. I am currently single, and I am sure that if I was married certain aspects of life would be easier, and more enjoyable. Sure, being single and free is awesome, but eventually you do miss someone that is always there for you.

This is a kind of topic that I'm interested in others opinion. I am currently single and I'm enjoying it. Although, there are times that I am worried about living alone as grumpy grandma. But also I can't imagine myself getting tie in a knot with someone for the rest of my life.

I agree@KIRZZ. The most important thing is to be content with where you are in life. If you are single and want to be married fine, but you also have to learn to enjoy yourself. Enjoy being single.Most married people I know are miserable. Marriage is a sacrifice and sometimes you go above and beyond the call of duty with no gratitude from your spouse. If you are lonely getting married does not solve your problem. You need to learn to enjoy your own company, then you will learn how to enjoy someone else's

One's contentment is the most important thing. If you are happy being single or married, it's your choice. Personally, I prefer being married, build a family, and raise children with my lifetime partner.

Which is better: Getting married or staying single: Staying single is so much fun, you can go wherever you want to go, you can do whatever you wanted to do. But, getting married is better, although its not just a piece of cake when entering into a marriage relationship. Having a partner/husband you could spend your life with is one of the best things happen. There were so many tough rough road to ride on and so many ups and downs to struggles in a married life but when you see how happy your family is, how contented you are, you could tell yourself "its worth enduring those hardship".

I used to believe that being single was the best thing. No worries, no answers, no questions, you could do anything with your life without worrying how it would affect some other person. I had few relationships, it was not that I was single my entire life, but none converted to marriage. And then I found this one woman and we got married. It’s true we argue more after getting married than when we used to date. Once you start living with that person, there are lot of things that change, that you find annoying, that’s opposite of what you do. Same happened with us. The simple “why would you keep your wet towel on the bed” turned into a daily point of discussion to argument. But I love being married. There is always something happening. It’s either teasing each other, or giving a death glare, or fighting, or arguing, or laughing, or kissing, or having sex, or behaving like a child, getting annoyed, cold wars waiting for your partner to end it, not wanting to say sorry, wanting to say sorry, crying, hugging, stealing your partner’s part of chocolates, hiding the ice cream and a lot more. Life is full of ups and downs while you are married. And that feeling of being THAT committed to someone is what I love. That I care and love a person that much that I would treat his needs and feelings the same way I would treat mine.

For me getting married and being single is just a choice. I myself can live single my whole life without worrying of dying alone. i could also get married anytime I want. People have their own preferences. Some lives a happy life alone and some can't without having a partner. The most obvious advantage of getting married and having a child is to continue your family's blood line.Also, you have someone to take care of you when you get old.

The usual argument supporting staying single is freedom to do things we like. Married lives bog down on one's interest and passion, so staying single is the best if one intends to pursue his dream and interest. But without partner sharing one's dream and passion, the journey to success has no meaning and happiness. Humans need companion to share our thoughts and interest, life will be full of colours if we can do things with our partner. The success is then shared by all members in one's family. After all the most important thing in life is happiness.

Staying single is not bad. No rules, no boundaries and no commitment. But in reality, you will come to point that you'll search for somebody to grow old with you. Someone to accept your carelessness and someone to laughed on you own wrinkles and everything.

Getting married. I would like to have a family that is blessed by God. I dream of a family to have a husband who will love me and care for me. To bear a children of our little us. I would like to have companion when I grow old.

If I will stay single, I can't have a family because it is not good to have a marital relationship without God's blessing thus I can't bear a child and call my partner a husband. I also believe that if a relationship is blessed with God and with genuine love and affection then it is not possible to make my dream come true about having a family.

If we will talk about freedom and no boundaries that being single may give, then for me getting married will never remove your freedom. You may be thinking and consider your partner or your children but if you love them then it will not be an issue at all. But it doesn't mean that it will take away your freedom to choose. Having a good family will make a person mature and learn a lot of things in life.

Getting married is a beautiful thing. You will have the support of your life partner for life. After a stage in life, you will begin to realize that you need someone else's support and that's when marriage comes into picture. You can plan things out with your partner, visit places, have fun with family and also plan your future accordingly. Although there are problems with married life, it all depends on the understanding of the couple and how they handle the things between themselves. One thing is for sure, you must respect your life partner because he/she has a very important role to play in your life.

Well, based on my experience, being single is awesome. You are master of your fate. You're in charge of everything and you're the boss. You decide who to go out with or party with or what time or any time you wanna go home. There's no limit to dating and partying BUT are you sure you won't get tired of it? too much years of booze, partying with friends, silly and short term relationships with soon wear you out. I did, and i knew i need space to clear things out. The excitement and thrill of a single life doesn't amuse me anymore. I'm looking for a more deeper meaning of what i am and what i'm here for. It is an uncharted territory. Totally unknown and exciting. The feeling of having a family of my own. Sounds scary but i felt the thrill and passion for it. Now i'm years ahead of all these events and i'm with my new wife and three kids, happy and no regrets at all. I believe age plays a huge the factor when it comes to life epic decision makings. So for now, Go party till you drop and see you when you're still healthy and able and say hi to the kids!

Of course getting married. Single life is simply life without purpose, like how can you live being alone. I agree of the quote, "No man is an island." I won't even dare to live without my family, my life would be so useless, life would be miserable, life is about love and how can you love being alone? Right? so yes I prefer a married life, I'm not married for now but I know I will be someday, I have an amazing girlfriend who supports me in everything I do and is so faithful.

I think you should only get married if you're really 100000% sure. Marriage is a complicated thing, it will test you physically, mentally, emotionally, and even spiritually. If you haven't prayed before you're definitely going to learn to pray when you married a difficult person. Yes being married would mean having someone around but that isn't always the case. There are times when the person you married can change over time, you'll be left alone wondering what happened, and you'll find yourself to be in an even more lonelier position than when you were when you were single. If it were up to me, staying single is the best way to go.

If staying single means not crying every night because somebody's cheating on me then yes, I'd rather stay single. I'm single right now and it's not that bad, well I mean I'm still alive so... yeah i think i'm ok with that. But being with someone is a great too, I think it's part of being human to want or need someone... but I have no plans on getting married. EVER. I don't think it's necessary.

For me, getting married is better because you'll have a lifetime partner to be with you during good and hard times, you'll be able to build a family and have kids, and you'll have someone to share your dreams with.
