hmmmmm,well almost everyone would say that they would like to marry,some of them also say that marriage is a punishment.now who is correct. i consider marriage to be a holy sacrament. it is a blessing.but now a days this relationship doesn't seem to be permanent. many are divorcing only after one year of their marriage. now when you read all these its better to remain a bachelor. what do you think? will you marry??

Marriage is not a punishment. Mother-in-law is. Don't blame marriage for people being divorced. There are far more people who break up before marriage. In that way,being a bachelor brings more troubles to relationship. :) I am married, and probably the happiest guy on earth.But that's not because of marriage. Thats because an angel is my wife. :-) Stay bachelor until you find an angel.

I think one should marry when the right time comes. One should start his/her family, raise children, live a meaningful life. Marriage allows two individuals to bring life here on earth. Marriage is slowly losing its importance. It is sacred and it is a gift from God but then it is greatly violated in present times. It should be treated the proper way, so I say that marriage is really important.

Well being divorced myself (he left me) I said id never marry again......but alas I am married again but this time I am truelly happy I did it. My hubby is great to me and he lets me go out and enjoy myself with no worries as he trusts me. When I say I do I mean it and I would not be divorced but I wasnt given a choice he filed for it. I wasnt happy but I would have stuck it out.

personally, i think I am happy being single. Now there are many factors in society, that will make you settle down. i think both have pros and cons. still i think being single is just nice. you can enjoy the freedom. one should marry only when he/she is ready for it, not forced into it.

I remember answering on another post "No, I prefer to be merry ..." (as opposed to being married ...) With the divorce rate the way it is in this country (the United States), it is obviously WAY too over-rated. No one is waiting for that special someone - they are just taking the first thing that comes along and WHAM. A short time later your assets get halved (if you live in a community property state ...) ... and god help you if you produced offspring ... If no one is waiting for that one you actually want to spend your life with, what is the point? Just hook up with someone, halve your assets, upset your children, move to someone else? What is the sense in this? Perhaps we need to look to the ones who have stayed together, for 50 plus years. Obviously theirs were not the typical WHAM BAM decision so prevalent in this present modern society. Better hurry though, before they are extinct ... that moment is fast approaching.

I still would want to marry but not yet,right now, I am enjoying my life being single. I want to experience the most out of my singlehood because this phase comes but once in our lifetime(well,except to those who are separated and divorced,but that's a different thing). Plus, I want myself to be totally ready when I get there, I don't want to have regrets after marriage because of being hastily married.I want my future children to be secured also that's why I financial preparation is also a factor.

I am already married, so the question if asked exactly reversed, DO YOU LIKE TO REMAIN MARRIED OR BACHELOR?. My answer would be MARRIED. Its so beautiful to get married and get lost in someone's dreams. I am married for 6 years and I strongly feel her importance in my life. She is not only my life partner but my life itself and I cant imagine myself without her. So, for all bachelors my suggestion is why not get married and enjot its enjoyments.

Ya, some say that marriages are punishment, but this is because they have seen so much negative about it, that they don't want to think further on how relationships can be improved. I would prefer getting married than to remain a bachelor, as you have someone with in good and bad times to support you.

Marraige is fine by me,its a good instition ,and im a beleiver in it.There arent too many folks that stay married nowadays tho,they give in after a few upsets,you have to just keep working at it all the time.

Dear friend, I had been married and we are at the verge of seperation right now in the family court towards the negotion part of money. In this experience I would express that there are people, feel to stay like a bachelor is well and good according to the character one person has. Personally I would like to live with a family which is loving and caring and where we both could go well without much problems as I had faced in my first marriage. I do know there are many successfull married life they are really considered to be luckiest people from my side I really wanted to be like a family like that. Still I hope if one gets a good wife a bachelor life may not be effected much if that wife understands her husband or may be her husband do not break those values his wife gives for him.

Definitely yes! i like to have my own family.. I'm excited to be in that situation but for now, I'm enjoying things being single. I have to do something i like that i didn't do. And when i finished that all I'm ready to marry. Often person like to live alone when they were old. But most people like to be with them when they were old. I'm after to grow old without somebody. You also are afraid too. Don't lie! Keep on smiling!
