Singleness Is A Blessing..is There Any Cogent Reason To Marry? by Gforce2015: 11:14am On Feb 14
I have been living a single and a solo life all through my life. This indeed has saved me from all kinds of hassle relating to couple life. There wasn't any devastating issue from inlaws or from the partner. This indeed seems good to me..because of all the dreaded issues in marriages I usually read about in this platform.
Then I conclude that singleness is more blessed than married life...

I agree 100%. Marriage is overrated.

Singleness is not a blessing, marriage is.

You 'attain' marriage because your natural state is 'singleness'.

There are reasons to get married, and reasons to be single. Depending on what you're looking for/value in life, both states can have their benefits

Anyone can get married...literally.

But if marriage is what you're into, a happy, healthy marriage with the ‘right’ person (whatever that means to you) is the blessing

I am very happy for ur decision but my brother,marriage isn't over rated never. After all, in a football field not all the players completes the season so is marriage.

Every decision is good but remember that old age is not good to live without offsprings.

Long ago I noticed that the greater number of world changers in scriptures were singles.

Of course, our Lord Himself, Jesus the Christ

It make me think marriage is wrong but it made me realise that marriage wasn't and isn't a step up in levels.

Marriage is only a different kind of living that must not distract or extinguish my world changing vision and life.

If you seek to get married, it's a good thing.
But don't ruin your life because of it.
Celebrate being single.
It's a terrific period of your life.
Enjoy it.
Embrace it.

There are millions of senior citizens the world over whose children have abandoned them in old age.

Having offspring isn’t a guarantee of care or love from them in old age

This is not abroad oh!

Why are Nigerians abroad coming back to marry after living and having children with Whites?

Great comment: I’d add to your list of never married great people: Isaac Newton, Nikola Tesla...some of the most talented scientists.
Apostle Paul advised the Corinthians that married people are going to have a lot of troubles, and he’d want to spare them of such.1 Cor 7:28

Do you. Your choice

Nobody cares but stop shoving it down on everyone's throat.

If not for unnecessary pressures from my mum and older siblings, I would have loved to remain single.

I'll just work, make money and create a paradise on earth for myself. Then travel round the whole world!

I'll hire some caregivers ( docs, nurses, physiotherapists, cooks and cleaners). Pay a good funeral home in advance to take care of my remains in the event of death.
Of course, I'll will my wealth to charity and to deserving relatives.

When I join my ancestors, I'll explain to them why I took the decision not to marry.


But my mum wouldn't just let me be!
