Guest Post: Marriage = Happiness?
Written by: The Professor
Looking at married people, are they really all happy? Did they all suddenly leave the wedding hall newly matured? Did they wake up the day after sheva brachos ended suddenly in possession of a great job so that they could support their family? Of course not! Everywhere you look, you see couples falling apart and getting divorced due to infidelity, lack of money and a whole host of other reasons. Do they seem happy to you?
Single people need to start realizing that they can be happy single / married people need to stop blowing smoke claiming the contrary. Single people have a freedom married people don't. There is an independence, a lack of responsibility, and the ability to be true to yourself every second of every day. You can lead a fulfilling life as well. Have a good job 9-5, good friends 5-9 and you're gold. You'll be happy, fulfilled and best of all: single.
