Many people are afraid of being alone so they stay in a bad marriage.

Some are already lonely in their bland marriage.

Most just too lazy to get to know another person all over again, so they stay in their troubled marriage.

The lucky ones woke up one day, 30 years into their marriage, to find they don't really know who this person is that sleeps next to them every night.  Others thought they had a good marriage.
But they themselves know, that it is not.

So, for what reasons should you stay in a marriage?

  • Love?  Trust me, after the ceremony, the bill comes and you start to wonder about this point.
  • Kids?  They have their own future, unless you're a control freak and want everything to be perfect.
  • Honour?  Hello?  What century are you still in?  If it's bad, get out of it.  

Stay in that marriage only when you know that you're happy being alone (single and lonely) and being in the marriage makes you happiER.

Think of marriage as a flavour enhancer, all ingredients are there in the pot, you can eat it without any additives, but add MSG, it tastes better.  Beware though, it is addictive and shrinks the brain.  e.g. Elizabeth Taylor R.I.P -married 8 times to 7 husbands- (guess Richard Burton was a powerful MSG).

Think of marriage as a bonus, it's a plus to be in a great marriage, but to have a great bonus, you have to work your butt off.  Unless of course you'll settle for a good one only.  There is a difference between good bonus and great bonus, you know what I mean, don't you?

But the point is, it is a bonus after all.

What really matter is whether you are happy by yourself, being alone, so single and lonely?
