Tonight we are talking about the merits of singlehood and whether we are happier, more satisfied with life, more prosperous, healthy or sexually fulfilled when we live alone. According to the office for national statistics in London 43% of women 18-49 are not married and a woman aged 25-44 is five times more likely to be living alone than she was in 1973. There is evidence in a survey conducted by Relate and YuGov which found that 81% of people who are married or living together feel good about themselves compared to 60% of singles. This obviously depends on the quality of the relationship. It has been found single people feel better about themselves than those in average relationships. In 2010 Kinsey found that among women aged 30-39. 12% of those who were single had sex only a few times a month compared to 50% of married women. According to another report women who have high self esteem and are confident about their bodies had high levels of satisfaction whether they were single or not.
