    There is a stigma against people who remain single.  People wonder what is wrong with them, when nothing is wrong--they just couldn't find the right person, or like being alone.  It's a lot better today than it was in the 50's and 60's.

      It certainly is MUCH BETTER today, particularly for women.

    To each their own.  There are some people that are meant to be single. True. 
    Then
    There are the others. That find value in someone that loves them unconditionally.  That realize sometimes in life you need to depend on someone more than yourself to enjoy the moments in life. There are those that want to leave this earth leaving a legacy of love. Marriage and children that have grand-children.  Someone to go to doctors appointments with and someone who loves you more than you love yourself.  There are those that can grow old together and that is a beautiful experience.
