Is marriage somehow a blessed happening that makes life better?
I think it can be - I think any relationship can be - you don't have to be married
I think it can also make you crazy and miserable
I've know several very happy couples that weren't married - that lasted years and years. I can say the same for the married couples I've known.
I've seen both married couples and non-married couples end it in no time at all
one thing I know for sure - you have to do what's right for you - when
it's right for you - even if that means never getting married
we all care about what our parents think - and their expectations can influence our decisions - no doubt
but there comes a point where you have to stop doing what they expect - and do what you know you have to do - or want to do
edit to add: it's even possible to have a perfectly lovely life - and remain single
