    I've discerned that more than a few people I've discussed such issues with tend to become walking contradictions for purely defensive reasons, if nothing else.

    "Oh, I really don't want the responsibility that comes with a serious relationship/marriage." This happy-go-lucky admission, for example, is often what I hear, when they really mean to say is that they're lonely, and frustrated, because finding real love is much more difficult than shopping for a new pair of shoes, especially in this increasingly twisted world that makes normal and right appear to be abnormal and wrong.

    Life is indeed complicated. We shouldn't minimize the realistic problems single people encounter in this respect.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    I can't imagine being single as a better alternative or preferable to a healthy, happy marriage. At the end of the day, all of us find that moment when we need emotional support and to share our happiness or sadness with someone. Those who are single usually realize it most on Valentine's Day or Christmas. Life is just happier with a soulmate by your side.

    Although I probably wouldn't have admitted to the fact that I was lonely while single, all I ever wanted is what I have now, which I dread losing.

    Pros and Cons



    From what I can see there are definite benefits to a single life, though it comes with its own set of issues. About three years ago I lived practically a hermit's life (no friends/wives/pets/etc), and while there were times when the solitude was heavy with loneliness, there were times when it wasn't, especially when I think of all the projects, hobbies, and arts I filled my time with. Now I am married and while it has its own benefits I really miss the time I had to devote to study and improvement which is now utterly claimed by shopping and laundry and the sundry little chores of domesticity.

    Don't get this - you didn't do shopping & laundry before you were married?
