Single men do not face any additional emotional stress from the relationship with the partner.
In contrast, many of them have to endure loneliness, and when they face a serious problem, the number of people who can help often does not include the partner.
While enough has been said about the pitfalls awaiting the married man, there is also much to say in favor of such a situation.
Although married men are restricted in their choice of sex partners, in general, “married people report higher levels of sexual satisfaction than both sexually active singles and cohabiting couples, according to the most comprehensive and recent survey of sexuality” (Popenoe, Whitehead, 2004).
When one sees single and married men in the crowd, one can often fail to identify them as either married or single.
However, a closer examination of their lifestyles can offer insights into the differences between the two.In attending to all these different matters, their lives may be in many ways similar, and their daily routines not that significantly different from each other.It is important that both can admire and appreciate women, and even have several relationships, although in the case of a married man this is a topic of high controversy. First of all, a married man comes home to his family in the evening, while his single counterpart can pursue any activities he thinks fit.A serious relationship with a girlfriend can change this situation, but girlfriends are much easier to get rid of than legal wives.This brings one to the discussion of the legal aspects of marriage.Both have interests in their lives that are outside of their family or love life.They are exploring various career options, enjoy a variety of pastimes, have friends to maintain relationships with, and so on.To many boasting a love of “free” life, to be married means to be shackled to a certain woman, bonded to her in a variety of ways.A single man can relocate at will, making the decision himself.Quite often, he can just pack his things and leave, disregard others’ opinion.How to spend an evening is not a matter to be seriously discussed with anybody.
