Single but happy.
Is happy being single?
If you’re in a society that is conservative ago, being single is very painful. Family pressure, including from the public, you were branded as “lazy one” or “old maid” could certainly the inner torment. Singleness unhappiness is caused by pressure from outside, not from within.
But a different story when you are in Sweden, England or America, live in the single life, the new norms and social pressure to marry not be nearly nonexistent. Professor Klineberg, a sociologist at New York University, explores the lives of individuals in America and found them quite happily enjoying the solo life.
Do they not feel lonely?
Professor Klineberg see and feel a line of distinction between being single and lonely. Not always feel lonely singles. His research shows the singletons (term for single person) would have an active social life, have many friends, in particular to facilitate the social media like Facebook, which has a single thousands of friends from all over the world. His time not more singles feel lonely than in the 50s.
Klineberg see also notes that you want to do that singletons freedom what they would have to sacrifice any time, without giving personal values. This contrasts with a married person, where they sometimes sacrifice to liberty and personal beliefs to compromise with a partner.
Married require sacrifice. Men and women are two different entities. Union of the two is certainly not easy. Especially if they have different personalities, values and principles. Without a reliable great diplomatic skill and patience, the marriage will not last long. Today’s generation, who tend to be very selfish and egocentric faced difficulties in marriage is much higher than previous generations are more impatient and easily compromised. No wonder the divorce, the trend of today.
