Today, there are many different perspectives aboutgetting married or being single. Some people just want to find that specialperson that they can spend the rest of their lives with. Some people just wantto enjoy life and remain single. Each has its advantages and disadvantages andtake different mindsets to enjoy. People fail to realize that it is better tobe married rather than be single because some aspects change such asresponsibility. In the first place, Freedom is one of thedifferences between married life and single life.
In married life, you mustconsult each other but in a single life, you do not have to consult anyone. Forexample, if a single person is offered a job across the country they will jumpon it but if a married person is offered a job across the country they willhave to talk to their partner to see how they feel about it before making ahuge decision. Single people can go out with friends without asking forpermission but if married people want to go out with friends they have askedtheir partners. Single people are not told what to do and what not to do butmarried people will be bothered by their partners.
Secondly, married people have more responsibility than single people. Singlepeople are self-responsible while married people are responsible for theirpartners as well. They must manage their money and expenses gently every day.They must manage their time for their families.
They must spend time with theirchildren and their husband or wife every day. Married people are responsible for raising their children andgetting their families in the right manner. In contrast, single people must doeverything on their own and they do nothave to worry about anyone else but themselves. Married people have the benefitto split things in half such as utilities, housing & groceries.
Singlepeople lose the opportunity to split things in half because they are paying foreverything on their own. Notto mention, companionship is another difference between married and singlepeople. Married people have someone that will ask them how they are doing andhow was there day. Married people think about theirfuture and make decisions in long-termlike when they feel that they are ready to start a family.
Single people justwant to enjoy life not settling down and starting a family. For every year in the past decade, the biggestgroup of unmarried people are those you have never been married. Their numbershave increased from 60 percent in 2006 to 63 percent in 2015. During that, the number of divorced or widowed peoplehave decreased. One reason there is a rise in the number of unmarried people isthat of the age in which people firstdecide to get married and among those who do tie the knot is increasing. In2006 the average age to get for women was 25.
5 and for men 27.5 by 2015, it was 27.1 for women and 29.2 for men. (Washington Post)
