Do you think it is possible for someone to be happy without a life partner?

Oh, for sure i think it is possible to be happy with a life partner. It all depends on how you handle your situation. I'm 25, so I have plenty of time to get married, or so I think (lol), but I am doing so well without a life partner. And since I am young and my opinion is not exactly credible since I haven't lived as long as others, I'd cite some people who could back my theory up. Luci Swindoll is in her seventies and was oh so beautiful in her earlier years and she just never got around to getting married. She was always having too much fun and participating in so many adventures. This is not to say you cannot have an adventure with a partner, but you have to admit not having responsibilites to someone else, gives you the option of doing more things. Leonardo di Vinci did pretty well for himself without a life partner and in fact, thrived. I think he would still have been famous married, but in no way would he have been able to devote his time to such extreme masterpieces as he did. Personally, I want to get married and spend 50 years with a life partner. But I don't look at them to complete my life. Rather, I look to them to compliment my life. If you are basing your happiness on someone else, most times you will be sadly disappointed.
