Which is better????

To be single or To be married Emotion: thinking

I always think about this as a matter of death or life.Emotion: surprise Oops I'm a little bit exaggerated here…

Anyway as a single, I feel that kind of total freedom.. no burden of responsibility (which what I believe marriage represents) … you know … go to work , go back home and just have a nice nap and wake and prepare anything to eat Emotion: pizza( don't bother yourself what to cook) read for three or four hours( no one to interrupt Emotion: indifferent), watch cartoons ( lol no commentEmotion: zip it) go to a friend and stay for long, long time ( by the way your friend should be single as well[A]) sleep whenever Emotion: yawnand then you may wake at the mid of the night, connect with the internet and go to Englishforums to see what Nyla, Mr.P, Janissary, Nona, Marius ….. and other members have writtenEmotion: wink. You’re that lovely guest to your grandparents' house (may be because you haven't children to mess around[<:o)])…. and so many things. I find everything lovely and wonderful in celibacy.

Oh I forget. Above all PRIVACY… have your total privacy. May be this is the reason why I hesitate when it comes to marriage. I'm afraid marriage means no privacy. (really I'm not selfish)Emotion: stick out tongue

What about you??

I agree with you Mythical Lady!I think I'll prefer celibacy until 26-27 years,then,I think,I'll begin to think about to "build" a family! Emotion: big smile That is because I want to live my youth! [F]

By the way,what did I write?!I've posted 375 messages,and I don't remember all of them!! Emotion: embarrassed
Hmmm...perhaps your title should have been marriage versus the single life. A single life is not necessarily a celibate one...it may be in your case and for many other people, but it's certainly not common where I live!

I've been living with someone for about a year but I do miss a lot about the single life! Being able to do what you want when you want is a lovely feeling at times. I miss being able to stick my nose in a book and spend all day reading it, laying in the bath for three hours, being an utter slob all week and then just having a housework blitz at the weekend, not having to listen to someone else snoring all night!

But being attached has its advantages too.

NylaI agree with you Mythical Lady!I think I'll prefer celibacy until 26-27 years,then,I think,I'll begin to think about to "build" a family!

we will see when you'll be 28 as I am...I think I am young to "build" a family, and I haven't got money to do it! There's not a right age for getting married, it's only up to you and your temporary situation; my temporary situation tells me that Celibacy is better!

I understand what you mean,and if I think better,at 28 I will be without money too,just because I must graduate,and then do the apprenticeship!

If I have to calculate it: 24/25 years (when I will supposed to be graduated) + 3 years (of apprenticeship,for free) = when I'll be 27/28 years old I will have no money,and a lot to do.

So,Fran you are right,celibacy it's the best until 28. Emotion: wink

Well, in my openion, privacy no make sense between husband and wife relationship. however, it is no doubt about that when we do marry we take some responsibilites but it doesn't mean that we shouldn't get marry. Sometimes, for getting a companion in the journey of life we have to give up the things we want the most. You may realize this thing in your old age.
The fact is, we spend almost half part of our life as a old person. It's not a pretty short period so we could easily forget. As we enter in our old age, we began to feel lonliness very much becaue it is the time when you need somebody.

So given these facts, what happened during this time, when this time starts, then there is no lover no boy or girl friend(becaue you are old), no parents(may have passed), no borther or sisters(may have moved), no friends(may have left) except your sincere life partner with whom you decieded to live until the end of the life.
We may then realize if we had taken some reponsibilities in our young age we would have a better life now.

I read in a magazine that if a women is still not married until his 30s the likelihood of marriage drops to %20. If she is 35 and still not married it plummets to %5. And a women who is 40 is more likely to be killed by a terrorist assault than to get married.

By the way,the average of the marriage age for women is 25 and 28 for men.But,you know it is the average of all.Educated people ,in particular, tend to get married after that age.

About being alone or to get married , I dont agree at all. But, I dont want to point out anything because now i am in love so i can not think consciously Emotion: smile

Sorry, I think I don't understand very well - celibacy is when you have no sex, isn't it?

Then in this case I think you don't need be married to have it.

I agree that to be single( witht sex-of course) is good till 25 - but after that you start to miss something.

Children, for example, is necessary in our life, but there are some people that don't miss them.

I think to be single for ever depends on the person. It's a choice. But have no sex...well, for me it's a little crazy.
