There are pro's and cons about being married or being single. People get married because of love, commitment, companionship and to have a family. Some people stay single for the rest of their lives because of freedom and married thing is not for them. Whatever the reasons are, you're the one to choose for your life. What will it be?why?

there are more cons about being in a relationship than we understand when we fall inlove. Love is good but it also can hurt real bad. Being single doesn't always hurt where as being in a crappy relationship does. Some people have good relationships but i havn't found one of them yet. I tried the partner thing sept we never got married. i didn't like it but it lasted 3 years and we had beautiful boy who i love with all my heart and that love cant fade.

If you're happy being single or married, then that's important.

18 year-old student over here. Single. And single i'll probably remain for, at least, the next 3 years. Reason: Im currently completing a 7-yr course, majoring in Medicine. It's not that my studies take up too much of my time but i've only completed one year now and to get into anything serious would (in my case) mean that she would have to wait for me to complete my course before marriage - ie 6 years. I think that would be horribly selfish of me. So yeah, imma have to wait for a while. Then again, if the right one comes along before then, then i guess i don't have much of a choice haha.

Been married twice, I think I've had enough fun in marriage to last me the rest of my life. Yes, the single life is for me. No more picking up someone else's clothes. No more washing someone else's dirty dishes. No more washing someone else's dirty clothes. No more having someone else steal all the covers in the middle of the night. Nope, it's the single life for me. LOL And, I forgot, no more saying I'll NEVER do that again because that is exactly what I normally end up doing...OH, the Horror! :)

Well, there are pros and cons for just about everything, lol. I'm only twenety-two years old and I don't really like thinking about marriage and stuff. Personally, I think I'm pretty bad at relationships in general. And no, I'm not afraid of commitment. I just have my own personal issues about it. But I'm won't rule it out.

Marriage is a painful contract, but it is one contract you turn your back to at your own personal loss-you are more respected even it you are in a hurting marriage than if you into no marriage at all!! Marriage presupposes family ideals, a single person may be free and happy, but you cant be regarded as a family person-infact you are quickly bundled into the category of irresponsible human beings, hunging around, betraying familyhod, and should not be trusted with a high office. For instance, the day you begin to tell your electorate that you are single,that is the day they will be very doubtful of you as someone to trust with their leadership! So marriage is something you can run away from at your own social peril!
