How to Cope with being Single as a Christian Man or Woman
So Why Aren’t You Married Yet (Single Man or Single Woman)?
For many women, being single can feel like a curse. Especially if you are a woman who is past 40 years and you are constantly 'attacked' with the question of "When are you getting married?"
Many people are either insensitive or quite oblivious to the fact that there are two (2) kinds of single men/women:
1st Type of Single Women/Men: Women/Men who CHOOSE to be single. There are men/women who don't want to be Priests or Religious Sisters (Nuns) but just want to be free of the responsibility of having to care for a husband/wife and children.
There is nothing wrong with these women/men. They just prefer their peace of mind and people should respect that. Not every woman/man wants to get married or sees it as part of her/his life's accomplishments.
2nd Type of Single Women/Men: Women/men who would like to get married but have not found an appropriate spouse. Then there are women/men who would very much like to find their life partner, get married and have children but who have not managed to find the right life partner as yet.
Again! There is nothing wrong with these women/men. Reaching a certain age does not guarantee that you will find your life partner nor does it require you to 'force fit' yourself into a marriage because 'the biological clock is ticking' as most people say.
People need to respect that also, since hurried marriages often end in divorce.

"Chicken Soup" for Single Men & Single Women
As a single woman who desires to have a family (husband and children), I know that it can be quite difficult to watch as you see your nieces, nephews, godchildren, classmates' children and colleagues' children grow up right before your very eyes and still not have your own dream of family realized.
If you are a single Christian woman/man waiting for the blessing of a spouse and family, I want you to trust in God's Divine Providence!
Despite the passing time and your feelings of sadness, sometimes, it is important that you remember that God provides all of your needs and will hear and answer your prayer and grant the deepest desire of your heart in the best possible way and in His perfect timing.
Remember, God's timing is not our timing, but from experience and in retrospect, we can always see that however God works things out He always works them out for our good.
So if as you read this article, you are a single woman/man who desires to have a family of her/his own or you know of some single man/woman who is still waiting to be blessed with a spouse, I urge you to be encouraged and not lose heart as you continue reading and/or share this article to lift someone's spirits.
Whether you’re a single man or woman, you’re not alone. There are many people like you out there. Find inspiration and strength from their stories whether being single is your choice or not.
If you are single by choice, then don’t let insensitive persons steal your joy. You were put on this earth for a purpose. So find out what your purpose and passion is and pursue it!

"Patience is a virtue, we're told, but it's hard to be patient when loneliness grabs hold of your heart and it seems like it won't let go."
In this book, Pope John Paul II examines the contrast between the personalistic and the utilitarian views of marriage and of sexual relations. “The former views marriage as an interpersonal relationship, in which the well-being and self-realization of each partner are of overriding importance to the other.
It is only within this framework that the full purpose of marriage can be realized. The alternative, utilitarian view, according to which a sexual partner is an object for use, holds no possibility of fulfillment and happiness.”
If all men and women read this book and understand Pope John Paul II's “magnificent vision of the human person” as intended by God, then men and women will have better and more uplifting, respectful love relationships.
