I have been single all my life, never dated. And no one every asked me out. When I was in my twenties I had hopped to meet someone while working, but it never happened. Thirties came and went, same with the forties. I am now nearing mid-fifties and just do not know if I would like a partner any more. I am doing my family tree, and as I go back in the past I have found that quiet a few of my ancestors never married either; men and woman. So now it makes me think! is it an inheritance? For some strange reason genes that make one not marriage material was passed on. I know it's a strange thought! lol. But you cannot help wonder! Sometimes I think it will be nice to have a mate , very close friend. But other times not , specially after my mother, aunts, cousins and other woman have said that they did not enjoy being married. And that if they new what they were getting themselves into they would of never married, but stayed single. And after losing their husbands they were to interested in having another. So if marriage is so awful why did God create it? Even Apostle Paul advised it was better to be single than married. Why did God give Adam, Eve? Are we doing something wrong? I know the people of the world are! but Christians have we missed something?
