Well I am a very independent person and nearly all my friends are married, I think there is always a little of the grass is always greener from both sides and my married friends are always telling me how lucky I am to be single, but it can get lonely when you are single if you let yourself, when the feeling of loneliness hits me I usually go visit one of my married friends and it hits me like a ton of bricks, I always love coming home and I am free to do what ever I want when I want without having to consider anyone else at all.

On my part, I still planning to get married someday.But then sometimes fear playing on my mind. I am afraid on it.I think because i have a lot of friends that are married who are not happy with it. I don't know i hate being pessimist!..

Hi, well i think both have their pros and cons and every person has their own choices and preferences, some prefer it married and some sinlge , depending on their choices. I would say being single had its own benefiets, like the freedom to do what and where and whenever you wanted, we didnt have to think twice about any third person. Yes parents were there but they knew us and wed tell them and go out or do things. Being married is like a bonding to be with and around your spouse, we have to be committed and remain together, and when the kids come in, we are doubly bound by them too, mothers all the more. Everything thats done then, is all dependant on their routines, and our own wishes and desires take a back seat. Its wrong and we should take out time for ourselves too, but somehow it doesnt happen, the spouse or the kids always come first, and then we miss our single life a lot more too, so i guess both sides have their pros and cons.

I like married life. I always have things to do, and we do things together and separately - last night I got together with my friends, and we decided to get together at my place, so my husband called one of his friends and went over to his friend's house and played games. I feel I have the advantages of single life - hanging out with my friends, etc., with the security of married life - knowing what our plans are, having a supportive person who thinks I'm very important.

There's nothing really big difference between married and single life. the only thing that would change is that your sense of responsiveness. Because in married life there is a lot of things to be tend to. There it will start that u will set your limitations and set your priorities. And being single you dont pay much attention to this things. Your carefree and just think of yourself and the things you want to do. While in married life you have to think of everything. From the needs of your family to your own personal needs.

I, myself, pefer the married life. I love being with someone and being in the committed relationship with them. I think it's every girls dream to be married someday, some just want that dream earlier than others. I love being able to take care of the person that I love and to have them next to me at night, but I've always been a family person. I love the idea of having a family and starting a family. I have that now. I have three beautiful children and a husband, though he is gone alot due to being in the military.
