Is Getting Married Or Being Single More Advantageous To Success? by praxs(m): 10:19am On Nov 30, 2018
There could never be wrong or right answer to this question but rather personal opinion and as well as experience of the individual.

The bachelor:
You focus solely on your business or career, you could take risk and yes go straight into recession. You are at liberty to try new things even when you are not sure of, your freedom as well etc..

Married:
I feel this will require a great deal of commitment both financially and time wise. You tend to be more careful, thus highly calculative when taking risks knowing that you have huge responsibilities at home. On the otherhand, you will get emotional support from ur family which could even motivate u to try harder. The joy of coming back home to ur family after a stressful day is compared to non.

One thing is sure: some happens to be more successful when single while others up to the next level after marriage.

Over to career people, money making gurus, singles and married.

The singles have big advantage in pursuit of success and prosperity. When you are single, you are bold to take risk because you have less responsibilities compared to the married. We all know that only the bold gets the gold. Those with lionheart gets the lionshare of success. Early marriage kills dreams.

Just like the Hare, the singles start out with much daring and gusto only to fizzle out due to lack self motivation, low financial pressure or non essential distractions etc....But the married just like the tortoise starts slow with much caution,calculation and analysis only to pick up speed and stability with (you know the rest).

What are you saying? Most big businesses today were started by the owners when they were single. Is it Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Apple, WhatsApp, Twitter etc were all started by the singles? Marriage brings stability to a man or woman.

The advantage of being single is that you don't give a damn about stability. You will just want to explore, be creative and daring. Many married have brilliant ideas that they can't implement because they have to consult their partner for consent.

What is the definition of success?

Living happily with personal and professional fulfillment.

Single or married, it doesn’t matter.

How are YOU living?
Are YOU depressed?
Are you living a FAKE life?
Are you satisfied with your life?

Only an individual can answer such questions. kiss

Well, I feel none is more advantageous than the other.

The life of a single person is no different from that of a married person. The only exception is when there are kids, I think.

Although, being single come with less distractions and obligations being married also drives one to be successful. Although, this happens usually when you are married to someone who loves you. They support you and even help you in making life-changing decisions.

Marriage is a burden people agree to bear and you have to be a superman to achieve success with a burden on your shoulder.

In light of the above I lend my agreement to the notion that being single is advantageous to success...

Even though I am single, I have this distant believe that success is achieved more with a partner. Sometimes, family motivates you to achieve more, dig deeper. The fear of failure when having a family will make you more smarter when it comes to making choices, thus.......
When I am married, I will know better. But just my thought

Some times having a second opinion esp from ur partner could be diff between success and failure.

Where do you think the idea of divorce settlement/alimony come from? From established statistics, married couple have been found to succeed better(make more money at the long run) and live longer. Divorce settlement is a statement to establish that one of the couple could not have made it that far without the help of the other one. Although, the success largely depends on the contribution bth partners are willing to bring to table. However, the fact remain that 2 are better than one, they can think together and conquer the world..

I disagree with your submission. There are more bigger establishment started and owned by married individual.. to mention few. Jack Ma of alibaba and the Great John D rockerfeller are topical examples

To me, mearriage is just a burden, it will only increase your stress level and shoot up your blood preasure, to be married you need money, more, money and more money.

To be married, you have to be completely well doing financially and also have a back up financial plan security incase everything goes down to shitt.

Bachelorhood definitely has got more advantage to success because you will be able to take financial risks without worrying about not having enough money to support your family since you are the only one which means you will have a better chance of survival.
