    What are the advantages of not having a lover?

    Some people said that they were happy by not having a lover. I would like to know your opinions.

    Well in the legal sense, marriage is the single-riskiest business arrangement into which any man or woman can enter--and it is a business arrangement, because it requires a very open contract in entering and a very closed contract in case of divorce. Most marriages in the US end in divorce and an even higher percentage experience rifts like infidelity. Love can often lead to children and/or a feeling of obligation to marry someone. So an advantage of not having a lover is a financial one. You do not risk sharing assets or making financial decisions with someone else who is not qualified to make them.

      Thank @Old-Empresario. You made me think about the financial aspects. May be some are afraid to enter into a relationship because they don't want a huge responsibility like  having a children and a financial sharing.

    I am very happy with me, I don't need a lot of company and seem to have outgrown wanting a lover. I am married but we really live two separate lives.
