Is it possible to live a fulfilling life without marriage?

I'm single and not going to date anyone soon but most of my friends are married. They all seem happy and secure. I don't resist marriage, but the right person hasn't appeared in my life. I don't want to rush into marriage and then regret my choice of mate for the rest of my life. I have mentally prepared to lead a life without marriage.


Do you think people can have a good life without marriage? Thanks for your comment.

Yeah I don't think you need to be married to be happy or fulfilled, just do what you enjoy in life and what makes you happy plus marriage isn't guaranteed for ever so if you are happy in single life there is no problem with that as long as you're happy. For too many centuries it seems like people were told that marriage is the key to happy life, but no actually doing what you enjoy is the answer.

Definitely no need to have a partner to hold happiness for anyone in the world. Happiness ought not to be established upon someone else but yourself.  You may as well be very happy without a company beside you as long as you know what you are doing and you have clear vision of the future.


However, to be a married woman can be a happy one and sometimes rearing a child can be a spring of happiness without abundant rewarding if you really love children and fond of cherishing them.


Certainly, that would be your personal decision to make yourself happiness, but remember to appreciate the world's bright side and be happy to do the things you have faith in. Last but not least, avoid believing in stale  old wivies' tales who might give your sour ideas at times. 


Good luck to your choice.

Good question,


It is always nice to have someone to share things with, however, we cannot forget that "the marriage and kids package obligation" was created by our society.

I wanna marry one say but I never wanted to have kids, I do not miss it and I am already happy for not putting myself on the mother's day list.

Even with all the people's bla bla blas, listen to your heart and don't worry about changing opinions later, if someday you feel like you need it. DO IT

If you're seeking for one clear answer, here it is: YES!

But there are many many "How?"s before reaching to YES. First you need to consider that marriage wouldn't necessarily bring you a happy life. Yes there are hundred pictures of happy-faced couples all over the Instagram but most of them aren't that happy. The point is happiness is just beyond being married or whatever.

So tell me what is happiness? What is this magical word that everyones talking about but no one seems to found it? If you're seeking for one absolute clear answer again, here it is: I don't know. Actually no one knows, the ones who claim to know are nothing but frauds. In best situation they only can describe their own way of finding happiness and satisfaction. Read again, their own way. There's no such common and always true method of reaching happiness. But yet there are some rules about it, for example no one can enjoy his/her life with lots of negative-minded friends. What I'm trying to say is: Never imitate living style of others in order to reach happiness but always follow the rules.

Build that unique living style of yours by considering your own personality and reform it over and over again. Stay flexible, experience and change through the time. At the end you'll find the true taste of happiness.
