Married couples are often more cost-conscious and do things on a budget. Onthe other than, many people rather remain single because they have more freedom to do anything that they want. They cantake new job opportunities across the country or transfer to another company.

Being single allows people to live their bestand most meaningful life. Single people are more connected to family, friends, coworkers than married peopleare. In Francis Bacon’s book, he saysthat But the most ordinarycause of a single life is liberty, especially in certain self-pleasing andhumorous 2 minds,which are so sensible of every restraint, as they will go near to think theirgirdles and garters to be bonds and shackles. Single people spend most of theirtime alone and have no one to ask them how they are feeling or how work isgoing.
They make decisions without having to answer or hear anyone’s opinion. In contrast, single people are self-responsible they liveby themselves and have no one to share the bills with but married couples havesomeone to split all the bills with. Both weremarried and single can be expensive. For instance, if a single person wants tochange their status and goes on a date they must spend money on clothes andgrooming products.
If a single person loses his or her job or if they get sickthey really don’t have anyone to fall back. Single people if they go out andsee other married couples are happy for them but also wish that they can havewhat the couples have. When they get home from work or going out with friends theyfeel like something is missing and that they will probably die alone. For instance,if a single person gets invited to their friend’s wedding and must bring a datebut will be fine going alone.
