Single or Married? Which one is happier?
Do you think a single person is happier than a married person or visa versa? If so why?
Between the single people I know and the married people I know, there is a wide range of happiness and satisfaction on both sides. One's relationship status is but a single factor in how happy he or she is. I really can't say if one group is happier than the other because it varies so much.
What do averages and general trends have to do with the individual? Everyone must decide for him/herself what makes him/her happy.
Great answer. That is so true. Some people say that being single and free with no resposibilities is happier than someone who has to always think of anothers needs and happiness before their own. Ultimatley everyone chooses their own happiness.
Whether married or unmarried, being happy is a situation. Logically, being happier than that can only be visualized but not experienced. So a married person believes being unmarried is a happier, and an unmarried person believes being married is happier.
The other side of a river is always greener than our side. Logically, one can never enjoy the other side from close quarters. So enjoy your happiness, and forget about being happier.
From my experience, happier during marriage. There is stability, a happy relationship, and the comfort of not coming home to an empty house at night. Sometimes he comes home from a bad day at work and is depressing, but we are only upset for an hour then he relaxes and life is good. Just have plenty of great food waiting for him!
It's really up to the individual. Some people look at being single as being "lonely" and others see it as "freedom". Some people see marriage as being (stable) and others see it as being (trapped).
No matter what there will always be those in one group that envy the other group. The most important thing is for someone to know his or herself. Marriage or being single are lifestyle choices Asking which is better is like asking which flavor of ice cream is better. It's completely up to the particular individual.
Being married is more fun, but I'm pretty sure it has shortened my lifespan.
I think it depends on the person. When I was single, I was happy. Now that I'm married, I'm happy. I guess it depends on the overall way they feel and what happiness is by definition to them. The same can be said of the word "success."
