Why Do People Get Married?

People marry to get company that they would not get if they were single. Nobody wants to return to an empty home, which is what happens if you do not marry. Isolation can be killing. Studies have shown that isolation can be harmful to health as heavy smoking or drinking.

It is only in the movies that bachelors look young and carefree. If you see men who are single, after the age of 28 or so, you will find that they look older and more worn out than married persons of the same age. Scores of studies done in North America and Western Europe shows that married people enjoy better health than singles. They also live longer.

I don’t know if this article is trying to promote marriage and reproduction or is trying to demote anything else. Either way, this article fails to be convincing. Perhaps, by changing the delivery methods or writing style, the content would sound more appealing to the readers.

I’m a pessimistic person & I dont believe being single or married defines you or gives you happiness. Man is very much capable of being single or married & still achieve some level of happiness.

The problem with people is that they tend to forget that everyone is not compatible maybe you & your first wife were not made for each other, however that doest mean it was marriage that was a problem (though it could be). Your partner cant not possibly give you everything only a clone is capable of doing that.

marriage works for some people while being single works for others, thus one must not spread the idea that the one is better than the other: people must choose whatever works for them.

as for J Walker you sound really scared, relationships are good on the contrary (unless incompatibility exists).
