4. Singles Are more Financially Independent
We live in the century of industrialization. Goods and service vital for daily life can be easily obtained at cheap price in the city. Materialistically satisfied, people do not need any spiritual help or comfort from marriage any more.
Eric Klinenberg, a renowned American sociologist, upends conventional wisdom of being single in his book “Going Solo: The Extraordinary Rise and Surprising Appeal of Living Alone”. He found that that people choose to be single not because they do not have enough money for marriage, but they are rich enough to live alone.
Therefore, although two people living under the same roof may save you some money, it is very secondary for some singles to consider. They have enough money to entertain themselves, then why bother look for joy from someone that you cannot control?
