I am a single now. I don't want to marry.Being single has many advantages.you don't need to warry about others.You are free to do anything.You can live a simple and easy life without supporting a family.You can avoid cheating,quarrelling,arguing or fighting.And you can have as many love partner as you like.I think being single is good.But many of my friends say you are a social man,you have the right to support a family.I don't think so.What's your opinion?

yes ,maybe in the deep night,you can just hear the beat of your heart ,no one can confide and no one can depend on,everyone need a company,and marriage will get these you need.

i am also single now but i guess i want to be married.I think marriage is a important stage of life that we should all go through.We can also have a partner that we can take care of each other when we are old.It's definately not easy to support a family but i guess all this hardwork will pay off when your son or daughter grows up and know that you have a hard time bringing them up and they will take care of you from then on.So i guess i prefer to be married.

hi there!!!Being single is always fun and that fun is temporary.When you are single,you take very few responsibilities on your shoulder which makes you feel like you are out of worries.But getting married,taking up huge serious responsibilities make you panic but its worth experiencing it!!!!

When I was single I always used to think that being single has many disadvantages, but now that I am married and sometimes have fight with my wife, I think that being single has many advantages. At times I think that life is quite peaceful when you are single.

single is better for you because you are not still ready to settle down, have a family, and shoulder the big responsibility of children. though being single has many advantages..those advantages are only superficial...it will only last for couple of years and then what? you view married life as dull and boring now but what you miss is the everyday commotion of married life plus the challenge of running a smooth family on your own with the many firsts of your kid which money in the world wont suffice to pay for it. just enjoy your single life now and watch what happen after a few years.

Of course I want to get married and have children. At this point in time, I am still longing and hoping that there is still somebody destined for me, I am not losing hope whatever happens. Ever since I am preparing myself and my future to settle down with the man I truly loved.

both sides are rewarding. I aleady have 2 children and choose to be single until she comes along. Enjoy the freedom though. Nothing wrong with discovery.

Although there is less freedom of being a married.but I think there is a direction if you have somebody watching over you. unless you feel the spices of life you will not appreciate it.

I'd rather be married. Single seems fun for a while, but eventually, I'll want to start a family, because a bunch of empty relationships built on passion alone will leave you lonely. In the long run, marrage is the better option.

I think that everyone has different preferences and I think even our own preferences change as we go through lifes journeys. Our decision could be greatly influenced, based on what kind of life we have led so far. A person who has been in an abusive or even not compatable relationship, may think they are happier for the time being anyways, if they are single. SOmeone who is happily married such as myself, wouldnt want it any other way. SOme young people look at the problems of their piers and think its not for them. Often as we get older, our views will change. Not always, but often as we age, we want someone there to spend our days with and sleep away our nights with. A companion we can count on

Single or married which do you prefer? Well right now I am married but when I was single I enjoyed my life to the hilt. You are right, you have the right to be with who you want to but is that what you really enjoy doing? Even when I was single I was never a player.....There is nothing wrong with being single but sooner or later it gets old. That is the reason why I got married.

I think that it would inappropriate for you to say that you'll stay single and never marry. If you look at it on different angles both have advantages and disadvantages and these also depends on what stage in life you are currently in. I'm married have two wonderful angels a boy and a girl. I can't say that it would be great for you know, but maybe in a later future. It may seem chaotic sometimes managing your life, business and family and to some people having responsibilities and obligations are just too stressful. At an early stage in life you don't have to hurry, but in my case I married and started a family at a very young age and we are doing fine. I love the fact that I would be around my 40's when my kids turn 20. I plan to retire around 35 and enjoy most of what's left of my life. That's only my opinion and I don't encourage anyone to get married nor to stay single forever. Enjoy life as it is and just savor every moment. It's the only way... go figure -- God bless!!!!

I would like to be married someday, but I am not in a rush right now. I am content at dating the man I am with right now. When the time is right for me to be married then I would be happy. But it's not like I go into a relationship expecting to marry the man.

I think that you only live once and you should life to the fullest. If you want to be single than live the way you want. You don't have to be married to enojoy life. Being married is a awesome thing but its not for everybody. It is hard to share everything you have with a husband and children but everyone makes their own decisions. With God anything is Possible. If marriage is right for you then God will let you know when the time is right. God Bless!

I think being single is ok and everything wether sing or married has its advantages I guess it depends on the person... but I do have to say that being single sometimes gets lonely... there will be times you look for that special person to know you without having to tell them what you want need and how you feel. I am sure you will get tired of changing girls, and sleeping alone. you have to worry about yourself wouldn't it be nice if someone else worried about you too. someone you know know will be there to get you out of trouble or rub your feet when they hurt or pep you up when you are down... I use to think being single was for me to... but then I found my husband and he is wonderful I wouldn't give him up for the world. sometimes he gets on my nerves and I know I get on his but at the end of the day its nice having someone to kiss you good night and kiss you good morning
