I did't get married till I was 45. I enjoyed it and was never lonely, maybe bored at times. I watched my friends go through it all and said no thanks. I can't name one couple from back then that are still together to this day. People asked me why I never married. I just told them I never had a gal ask me.
English language has this strange attributes to differentiate singular and plural.
He eats, lives, sleeps, breathes, farts ........... all to singular form.
They eat, live, sleep, breathe, fart .............. all to plural form.
Single form always need longer spellings. English language is prejudice to single people. If one need to be single, stay away from English language.
