Is it better for a man to marry or remain single?


Aside from fornication and adultery, what do you think: Is it better for a man (woman or man) to marry or to remain single?

When referring to this subject, the Apostle Paul, who was not married, wrote:

Yet I wish that all men were even as I myself am. However, each man has his own gift from God, one in this manner, and another in that. But I say to the unmarried and to widows that it is good for them if they remain even as I. But if they do not have self-control, let them marry; for it is better to marry than to burn with passion. (1 Corinthians 7:7-9)(NASB)

To better understand what the apostle refers to when he says that each man has his own gift from God, I invite you to read the article “How to find out if you have or don’t have to marry?”.

I also invite you to read the article “Is it a sin not to marry?”
