As eager as you may want to get married, it is important that you maximize the benefits of singlehood. Some people believe that the best thing that can ever happen to a man is to get married, this school of thought is not totally true. Because there are a lot of benefits that accompanied singlehood which a married man/woman can’t fully enjoy.
You should never think you are at a disadvantage because your mates are married why you are still single. There are grounds you can cover and values you can add to yourself which can give you an edge over your friends that are married. The most important thing is to use your singlehood to explore opportunities before you get married.

Every stage of life has its own advantages and what you can accomplish during each stage is numerous. For instance, it is a bit difficult for a married man/woman if they are still in school to concentrate. And for one to achieve great succeess academically concentration is key and that is why the majority of married men/women perform below their academic potential. For this reason, singles have edge over the married to perform well academically.
I will discuss below reasons why you should enjoy your singlehood
1. You have undivided attention
A married man/woman will always think about her/his spouse and children. Moreover, how to perform their individual responsibility at home will be one of their priorities. For this reason, their attention is always divided and sometimes it does affect their work or life generally. Imagine a man whose children were sent home because of school fee and even had a quarrel with his wife; such man will not be in a good state of mind. And this may lower his productivity.
Undivided attention is very crucial to life and career success. And this is what singles enjoy, should maximize, and use to their advantage.
2. You have your time to yourself
One of the things you enjoy as a single is that you are not subject to supervision. You have nobody to share your time with but this is not true for married men/women. You have the whole time to achieve whatsoever you want to achieve on time.
3. You make decision based on yourself
As a married man, you must put your wife and children into consideration before making a decision. For instance, as a married man living in “State A” and you had a job opportunity in “State B”, you will have to put your family into consideration before you accept the offer. This is not true for singles, you can travel and make a career move at will without much consideration.

4. You have less pressure
A man that is single has less pressure compared to a married man. A married man will think about his family, extended family, in-laws etc. and sometimes experience some pressure from these people but singles don't experience such.
Singlehood is a time to explore many opportunities at your disposal without any restriction. And you should never see it as a disadvantage. Enjoy every bit of it.
