The POLL: Which of these best express your views on married life or single life? Explain why in comments if you wish.

My OPINION: I was once married and have since decided I am a much more productive happy person being single and will never make the end all be all mistake commitment called marriage. So lately I have been reading up on trends and found this fascinating. For me, I am very happy the fact that you MUST get married, have kids,
white picket fence and family home, women care-giving and men working is
no longer the norm view. The website link (and statistics) below is based upon a very unique and practical view (in my opinion)...

    I REALLY would NOT want to be single now at all. If I was, no doubt dating would be something I would not do.
