Thanks, never been married and have no interest in it. Maybe it is strange to others but I am HAPPY. I have to live my life, not anyone else. If it happens, great - but if it doesn't I go about my life and make myself happy. I have a lot going for me; good job, attractive, college degree, good personality. I see all the divorces around and unhappy people and feel lucky! I think it is great if someone is happy in their marriage, but nowdays it is a wonder when couples stay together "til death do us part."
You certainly have the right to live your life as you wish, and it sounds like you've made some very wise choices. I wish you peace always :)
