Psychologist: Staying single is better for your mental health

After having been in long-term relationships, and being single long-term, I'd have to agree with this assessment.

"One psychologist claims that staying single gives people a chance to 'live their best, most authentic and most meaningful life,' while also stating that the idea of a blissful marriage is entirely myth. “The available findings are telling. For example, research comparing people who have stayed single with those who have stayed married shows that single people have a heightened sense of self-determination and they are more likely to experience ‘a sense of continued growth and development’ as a person. Other research shows that single people value meaningful work more than married people do … another study of lifelong single people showed that self-sufficiency serves them well: the more self-sufficient they were, the less likely they were to experience negative emotions. For married people, just the opposite was true.”
