Are Single People Happier?

As you probably know, talking about living alone/being alone/being single is extremely popular right now.  It seems that not a day goes by that we don’t see or hear this topic being discussed on TV, in newspapers and magazines, and all over the Twitterverse. Sometimes it’s discussed in a way that’s balance and affirming.  Other times, singlehood receives the cold shoulder.

Recently, The Washington Post  conducted a survey and ran an article about living alone, and we found the results of the survey to be thought-provoking.

    I think it depends on the person. Some people view marriage as their own personal hell. Others, like me, view marriage as the only way they'd want to experience an intimate relationship. A person's perspective is tinged by the way they saw marriage "done" as they grew up.

    I saw marriages not work very well, or be non-existent, and the accompanying temporary relationships, and baby mama (and daddy) drama. It scared me "straight". As the youngest of seven siblings, I saw many (but not all) of my brothers and sisters make poor choices. By the time my turn came, I knew enough to avoid their mistakes.

    I'm happy to be able to say that I have a healthy view of what marriage is, and isn't. My husband is not my Savior. He's a good man who loves me deeply, and whom I love in return. We raise our daughter together, and enjoy one another. That's good enough for me.

    I would not want to be single again. I love the stability and excitement of a good marriage. I get the best of both worlds (security and thrills). Marriage beats the hell out of the exploitation found in the current dating market.
