Would you rather be single or married?

have a partner without marriage.
|I have no
In this poll, we asked our visitors the simple
question whether they preferred to be single or married.
As this is a site which helps single people
find and build relationships, it was probably not surprising that
few responded that they preferred to be single. Most, again not
surprisingly, responded that they preferred to be married.
We did not ask whether our visitors were
married or had experienced marriage in the past. So we could not
tell how many responded through personal experience.
If we assume that many had not experienced
marriage, then it could explain why just over a quarter of the
visitors responded by saying they had no preference.
Just under a quarter replied that they
preferred having a partner without marriage. Could this be mainly
men afraid of commitment? Could these be people who had previous had
bad experiences of marriage. Could these bad experiences have been
their own or their parents' marriage?
