Besides BTO why do guys wanna get married?
I see no other benefits to marriage and kids.
Have to take a care of crying babies.
No time for yourself, no time for gaming, no time for hobbies.
No money for yourself as all go to wife and kids.
I find that its much more enjoyable being single as I have the freedom to do whatever I want anytime I want.
My daily life is just sleep, eat, gym, work, game, and repeat and I already find not having much time for myself after work.
I wonder how married couples with kids cope with life especially in Singapore where it’s so stressful.
- To each his own. But I was single for 33 years…traveled and lived the bachelor’s dream. Then married and had my first kid at 38. I’d say married life and parenting is way more challenging. However through those challenges, we discover who we really are. Your family is the best mirror of yourself. Through knowing yourself and growth there is joy. Through the life long bonds you form there is family and kinship you actually have a say in developing. I had a bad relationship with my parents. This gave me a second chance at a functional family. When we are parents we also gain perspective on our own parents’ choices. Marriage and Parenting are some of the most difficult things people will do their whole lives. The reward is a full heart if done right. Otherwise staying single may be better.
- You do know most of your friends will get married and loneliness will set in more and more by the year. It’s also not easy to make friends when you get older. The older you get the more difficult it becomes.
