Marriage

Have you guys ever heard of a person never getting married? It seems that society makes it a requirement for everyone to get married and raise a family. I feel that I will never get married and just wanted input.

Re: Marriage

Lots of people never get married - it is a choice you make. Dont worry about it.

Re: Marriage

I understand that there are many who dont marry but I would have to say that they make up an extremely small percentage. I would say at least 95% of people do marry. I could be wrong, I have no idea.

Re: Marriage

jtom, a very large percentage of people get married, and I'm just like you, I feel I never will. I'm still young, so I try to be realistic. Ideally I'd like to, but I'm not sure if it'll happen, haha. But yeah, people definitely don't get married for one reason or another. It's really no big deal, but people tend to make a big deal out of not being the way everyone expects you to be, ya know?

Re: Marriage

I'm certain many people never get married. I have friends who never married. I doubt that 95% of the population is married. Check some US census data -- that should tell you what percentage of the population is married. I'll wager it's under 95%

Re: Marriage

Your probably right but those that dont get married make up a very small percentage when compared to those that do get married.
