    Personally, I prefer to be married with the right woman or would rather be single than be with the wrong woman. It depends on how your life is. The quality of your life and your relationship. If it drastically reduces your personal well being and you are depressed and without life; than being single is so much better. However, for those who understand and pursue relationships by investing from the very beginning with those whom share the same ideals will find that their relationships are fulfilling and worthy. Your heart grows fonder with the right person; but can grow tiresome and resentful with the wrong person. Take your time choosing the right person for you. Hopefully, this has helped answer your question. And, for the record, I enjoy being married. I also have my space within my marriage. Great question.

    I like the ideal of marriage, & would like to get theory. However, I'm not into having another child to raise, so it would have be a mature man emotionally.
    Basically, I thought it might be wonderful if he had his own house, & I have my own, so it sorta looks like I favor singleness. I love the freedom of being single, but I really would prefer to be  married.

    I am married, so definately I prefer to be married. In our cultures, we don't know about single. Being to be a Canadian citizen, I came to know about single. In my opinion there are advantages to be married. For example as:

    1. You have partner to share your day to day life.
    2. You are going to have kids together, so ofcourse, both of you will take care of them.
    3. Especially in your old age you can have big support from each other.

    Disadvanges to Being Single:

    Ofcourse as I heard there must be advantages to being single, in my opinion they can be for short term only.


    1. You are not trustworthy to one partner.
    2. Your kids are not getting proper love from parents, as they should get.
    3. In your old age, nobody is with you.

    So be married and be trustworthy.

    I LOVE being single. I've been in a committed relationship for 8 years, but I don't see any reason to live together or get married. Actually, I like Etherealenigma's answer about having our own houses, which is what we have. We live about a mile or so apart. I think the ideal would be to live next door to each other! I love having my own space and don't see any reason for us to move in together where we would get on each other's nerves. And I'm a writer. I like the quiet. I don't feel the need to talk much, to talk about my day much.... I spend most of my evenings alone doing my own thing. We have a great relationship. I wouldn't mind marrying him, actually, as we have the commitment and love. But I love living along! Probably always will!
