Well, some people said it is better to remain single but happy than to get married and be miserable? Will you agree on this idea? Well not all married life are miserable. It's true that it's not easy but then, do you think all single people who love alone are really happy? I don't think so. Your idea about this?

I don't think that a married life is a miserable life. And I don't think a single is a happier life either. The sense of happiness is free for everybody, you could be happy if you want to be happy. Happiness is not a thing to look upon or to search after. It is more on the attitude, simply, just be happy. So whether, married or single both can be happy. I am single and I am happy. My parents are married, and they are happy, although there are low and high moments but they are together for 3o years. So happiness applies to both.

I think the saying is "It's better to be alone than with someone who makes you miserable". I'd agree with that one 100%. My ex was a nightmare and I was glad when he left. I was lonely by myself but when he came crawling back I slammed the door in his face. I couldn't bare the thought of being with him again. I think some single people are happy but I'd say most are lonely.

Unfortunately, there are probably just as many lonely married people as there are lonely single people!

Neither side is a win, win. You can have a married couple where the relationship just went wrong and they are both miserable. A single person can be miserable as well. It all depends on how you look at your own situation. There is no win and lose, a single person can be happy single and many married people are happy.
