Thank you for this! I’m not cut for marriage and I’m better off accepting that than trying to fit in at any costs and books in a society with formulas of happiness, you know, being in ‘relationship+kids+dog/cat’.

Studies showed that lonely people have much more health problems etc, but what the studies don’t show or had even looked for is that maybe the most difficult thing of being single until you die is how society treats us, labelling, shaming.

Your article is very pertinent for those who think that not getting married is a problem and is good for that matter.
