All my friends are married
Every Tom and Dick and Harry
You must be strong
To go it alone
Here’s to the bachelors
And the bowery bums
And those who feel that they’re the ones
Who are better off without a wife
I like to sleep until the crack of noon
Midnight howlin’ at the moon
Goin’ out when I wanto, comin’ home when I please…

A Tom Waits song from a long time ago, “Better off without a wife”

I get it. Good piece. Single life is also in some ways better for the environment in that you don’t add people to the planet but then again you have to have a household. Fundamentally, I agree with you though it’s nice to have human contact too.
