    Does human nature supports celibacy?

    Some owing to committment prefer to stay unmarried, some for various reason stay away from it. Where as most of get married. If one stays bachelor is it possible for him or her to lead a decent and morally sound life?

    Life is a personal journey and each of us sets up our (own) moral code. For lots of people, having pre-marital sex does not mean they are morally bankrupt. It's important not to allow others to tell you how to live (your) life.
    You're responsible for your own happiness!
    Celibacy is a lifestyle (choice) and not a DNA code. Human beings (naturally) have sexual hormones and periodically becoming aroused is considered normal. Nevertheless there are people who do choose not to have sex despite having the urge.

      All animals other than man automatically give into their (natural) instincts. It's doubtful any animal/ insect for that matter in nature would (choose) celibacy. They do what comes naturally. Morals and guilt are what set man apart from animals.

    Why do you equate a bachelor to being unmoral and incapable of leading a happy life? Being married or having sex in general has absolutely nothing to do with either of those things. One person could have the most sex on the planet and be happy, another person could never have sex and be equally happy. Can a blind person lead a happy life if they will never be able to see? Can a deaf or mute person lead a happy life if they can never talk or hear? Yes they can, and I find those disabilities to be far more discouraging than bachelorhood in terms of living happy.

    Hello again, m abdullah javed!

    What are you asking? What do you mean by 'human nature' being, somehow, in 'support' of 'celibacy'? Are you asking: Is there something 'inherent' to the human species (psychologically, emotionally, and so on) that, perhaps, (justifies?) celibacy, which is to say, not having sex?

    Are you conflating bachelorhood with celibacy? Surely not?!
    Also, are you saying that there is indication, in social theory, that married people tend to live more 'decent' and 'morally sound' lives than unmarried people?

    By the way, as a side note: What do you mean by 'marriage'?
