Is there anything wrong with being a life-long bachelor?

I ask this question, because I am 44, and never married. Actually, I have enjoyed my bachelorhood, and probably will never get married. Today, I would think there is nothing "wrong" about men never getting married. For women, it may be different, even today. They are called, I think unfairly, "old maids" if they never marry. Years ago, women were obsessed with getting married by age 30 and preferably by 25...not anymore. So many today work, and there is not such an emphasis on marriage. Of course, if you never marry you do not carry on your lineage, no kids. I might regret that someday. What do you think about this issue?
