not only do you go through excessive pain and stress during marriage but I notice a lot of people around the same age as me who are already married not only look older then their actual age but, they also behave 10-20 years older.
plus I have noticed that people who aren't married tend to not only look more alive and healthier, but they seem to be more outgoing and adventurous then people who are married.
anyways, this is my philosophy. but what is yours? do you also think marriage is bad for your health?

I'm not married, but from my observations it depends on the relationship and also other factors about their situation (such as whether they have long suffered from financial issues). I know many older couples who are happily married, people who I feel are truly compatible and have, over the years, figured out how to balance their skills, and their shortcomings, in a way that allows both to contribute positively to the relationship. There are however many people who are perhaps with someone who is not truly compatible with them. Then there are those people who are simply better being on their own, or in relationships that don't require the extreme amount of self-sacrifice that is required of marriage. Perhaps they give too much of themselves in a marital relationship, and end up losing their independence and ability to think of themselves as not only part of a union, but also as an individual. Or perhaps they are just too independent to give their partner the dedication they need. I think it all depends on the individuals involved, and how they come together. Finding the "right one" is extremely difficult, and often people don't realize that they are with someone who is, in the long run, causing them more pain than gain until many years into the relationship. And at that point they love the person so much, or rely on them so much, or have so many obligations and connections with them (such as children), that they can't imagine separating from them.0
