The idea of being single in a Christian community can be so burdensome in its way at times.

There is also the isolation regularly felt by those in this category, it can be overwhelmingly depressing. It takes more than just a righteous heart to stomach it all.

The independence of being your own boss and owning your decisions without considering the opinions of anyone else, oh that feeling! It’s exhilarating.

Singlehood for a Christian is a time for self-love and appreciation.
We can often notice how singles tend to be more socially outgoing and presentable in terms of appearance and dressing.

Singlehood, quite sadly, has also come to be associated with lose behavior and promiscuity, even in Christendom, right within the confines of the church.

If you ask me, it’s all a matter of decision and choice of self-discipline. There’s probably a reason why you haven’t yet tied the knot, whether personal or not, it is an opportunity to grab the reins of individuality and master it before moving unto married life.
There’s no jumping that phase in life, it is a necessary milestone that must be crossed by every individual if we are to understand the true meaning of companionship.
