This is a tough question for me. I have been in a long term relationship for awhile. The man I am with has 2 children who I call my own. We are not yet married but I dont think anything would change even if we were. I think its a matter of personal preference. Why get married if you cant afford it? or Why stay single if you love the person? Theres a side to both arguements. Most of the reason that I havent gotten married yet is because neither of us can afford to and I really dont want to have a shotgun wedding or one at the court house... lol With our families theres no chance either one of them are going to pay for any of it so it would be all on our own and to me its just not worth spending when we could buy or save the money for something we need or want. I cant say that I like being single. Techincally my status is single, but I just think of myself as married. So anyway i guess I just answered the question some how.. I prefer to be married, although I am single and not yet married. Does that make sense? Hmm i think ive confused myself... lol

I think I would much rather be married. I want to have that security that I have someone to love and to love me. That I found that one perfect man. I like knowing that I am not going have to deal with having to date and try to find someone new. I like sharing my life with someone special.

I say being married is better then being single. I wish I could get married its depressing being single and alone. But it can also be hell especially if you have a wife like peg from married with children lol. Now if I did I would wish I was single and probally would never get married again lol.

i cant imagine myself old and alone, no way.. i want to get married and have children. a complete family. i dont care about the trend, what i care is myself.. i dont think i will be happy when i reach 40 or 50 going to vacation alone? i dont think so. would you?.. maybe for young adults, we can still enjoy being single, loving the freedom of doing anything and going anywheree but as people mature, we tend to look for someone, a shoulder to cry on, a company... life is much colorful and meaningful when shared with your husband.

I am a firm believer that there are pros and cons to being single as well as being married. I know alot of people dread the single word...its seems to have a stigma of loneliness tacked onto it. Yet married has the stigma of being tied down. So I guess there would be many opinions. I was married for 10 years before I filed for divorce a year and a half ago. It was a relieve to me to get divorced but yet it opened a whole new world of being alone. I was not fearful of being alone...I was fearful on loneliness like most probably are. I can honestly say that I do enjoy being single for now but I also enjoyed being married for a period of time. I have made a decision in my own life to accept whatever it bring to me. Single or married I will be happy with what I have...after all things could be much worse.

Well we are here to find the right person for us, but for few people they are so lucky enough that they wil get their right person whith no effort, this is wat called fate. They wil be desitined to have such loveable persons in their life, but at the same time it is not that easy to carry a relationship. There must be lot of adjustments, understandings, compromises..still more. So in order to carry a long time relationship you must be matured enough and have lot of patience for that. And persons with such attitude always prefer a married life rather than being single. Because they feel that they are in need of someone who really will take care of them and make their life happy. But i wish to be single in my life. Because i feel all these marriage, commitments and a ciaous in life. Its really hard for me to carry a long term relationship, and i wish to start my own business in future for which i don want any hurdles. So if i get married i wil be into lot of commitments which might fail to fullfill, and i don wish to take such a risk in my personal life. So i prefer to be single and happy.

Single! You don't have to answer to anyone! I can go and come as I please! I can do what I want to do! For years I thought I needed to be married and that was my destiny! NOT! I'm so much happier,content, have peace of mind,calw, no stress having one around! Yes it is lonely but I pretty much a loner! Having a man in my life would only work if He'd be there for me and be gone and stay gone until I need him again! So single is it for me!
