Top Ten Reasons to Stay Single

Staying single, or getting married. It's a choice some people make, but this list is of reasons to stay single.
The Top Ten
1 You get to make all the decisions yourself

You should be making 50% of your decisions by yourself in any case.

2 More room in your home for yourself
3 No arguments

Men love to argue too. Women aren't the only problem in relationships.

4 More money to spend on yourself
5 You won't have to worry about divorce

Getting married is easy, getting divorced is a pain. And it's estimated that approximately 40-50 percent of first marriages and 60 of first marriages end in divorce. Why bother with marriage when there's a high chance that it won't last anyway?

Approximately 40-50 percent of first marriages and 60 percent of second marriages end in divorce. And divorce is complicated.

6 You can be selfish

Which makes you a less likable person regardless of being single or not

7 You can't cheat and have it be really bad

Funnily enough there's an easily solution to this and that is not cheating.

8 You can spend more time with friends

This is one of the best reasons to stay single. As you devote more time to your partner/spouse, you'll be spending less and less time with friends. Friendship is also an important relationship and hanging out with your pals is always fun.

Your friends can get more arrogant towards you when they date.

I'd rather have my good friends than a tough relationship.

9 You won't have to waste money on the wedding
10 Some relationships are toxic

Some people end up marrying someone who is abusive, mean, possessive and jealous. That person may even keep a close eye on them even if they're the one sleeping around and cheating. Why be stuck in an abusive relationship/marriage when you can be free and happy?

The Contenders
11 Many relationships don't last

Relationships and marriages come as go all the time. You'll probably go through multiple partners throughout your life.

12 No second family

You already have your own nagging parents to deal with. Why take on someone else's?

13 It's isolating

Marriage can be isolating. When you're married you can no longer go out and do whatever you please. Your husband/wife is your family and social norms dictate that family comes first. You are allowed some friends and free time, but only when it's convenient.

14 No broken heart

You'll never have to worry about a partner/spouse cheating on you or leaving you for someone else. No relationship means no heart break.

15 You're less stressed

When you're married or in a relationship, disagreements and fights are on another level. And sometimes these arguments are so stressful that they actually cause us more damage than we think. Being single reduces this stress.

16 No drama

There is no drama when you're single. There are no arguments, cheating accusations, insecurity, stress and other crazy emotions that most relationships bring.

17 You can own any pet that you want

I want to own any animal I desire and nobody will tell me otherwise.

18 It can be safer in terms of house robbery

If someone robs your house, as much couldn't be stolen, knowing you live on your own.

19 Singularity doesn't mean loneliness

Your life is all about you. You can selfishly indulge in whatever activities you want. Your resources and efforts are invested in you. Being single does not mean solitude or emptiness. You can find friendship, community and political solidarity. In fact, with no man/woman in your life, there can be so much more of these things.

20 No jealousy issues

When you're single, you never have to worry about a partner/spouse always getting angry, jealous and insecure every time you talk to the opposite sex. This is one of the biggest benefits of singularity.

21 Marriage can put friendships at risk

Many people sense strains in their friendships after they get married. People tend to lose at least one close friend after getting married, as a husband/wife fills that role. When someone spends every waking hour with their spouse, that can lead to neglecting the other people in their life.

22 Marriage can lead to the habit of relying on one individual for every need

Many married couples make the mistake of turning their spouse into a "sex and everything partner". They look to them for all sources of contentment such as companionship, intimacy, caring, friendship, advice, the sharing of tasks and finances of household and family, and just about everything else. This creates an unrealistic "cultural fantasy" that ultimately results in disappointment and unhappiness.

23 More personal space
24 Marriage benefits men not women

Studies show that men benefit from marriage through an increase to their health, wealth and happiness. However, married women are no better off than unmarried women. Wives are expected to treat their husbands like incompetent children in domestic matters - to behave like their mothers, ensuring that they are fed, washed, well-dressed, and that their things are organized. Despite supposed gains in marriage equality, studies show that even when both partners are employed, women still do the bulk of the housework and childcare. This, men are freed up to maintain a healthy social life. The social life of women, however, takes a sharp turn after marriage.
