The Advantages of Being Single

Happily SingleWebster’s dictionary defines the word “single” as: 1. Not married 2. Of or relating to celibacy. Being single has several advantages:

1.You can leave home without having to wait on anyone.

As a single, all you have to do is get ready, grab your keys, and leave. When you leave, everybody leaves. Now that I’m married, I have to wait on my wife and daughter.  I’m punctual and can’t stand being late.  My wife on the other hand…

2. You can leave something in the refrigerator and guess what? The next day it’s still there!

I can come home from work thinking about the mint chocolate ice cream that I left in the freezer only to have my wife and daughter greet me at the door with mint chocolate ice cream mustaches.

3. If you’re a woman, you don’t have to worry about your husband wanting sex all the time.

I know it seems crazy now to view that as a disadvantage because you want to have sex. But remember, when you’re married your husband has the right to have sex with you on a regular basis. Some nights you may have cramps or a headache, and you won’t want to be his porn star for the night. However, when you’re single you have the bed all to yourself and you don’t have to worry about your husband trying to poke you at night when you’re tired.


These are just some of the advantages of singleness, although there are exceptions if you’re a single parent. And just to be clear, if you’re living with your boyfriend/girlfriend you are still single.
