I’m 39, never married and never had children. I feel I am basically happy in the single mode. Marriage is not necessary to fulfill my life. I earned a master’s degree, have a good job that I like, bought a house, have two dogs that I’m passionate about and do regular volunteer work. A man would be nice, but not essential. However, I did get upset when my father told me that my uncle asked if I was gay because I had not found a husband. In my low moments, I, too, have wondered what is wrong with me. Luckily, those low moments are few. I haven’t thought much one way or the other about unmarried men. As for never-married women with children – I’m against it. I think children should have two involved parents. I guess I vent my maternal instincts by having dogs.
