 Yes, say many. My friends (especially women) from around the world are constantly SAYING "marriage is dying," and that living together is "so much better." Sure it's true that around the world more people are living together than are married. Is IT  also true that married women are less successful, more depressed, less healthy and more likely to die a violent death than single women.

HOW TRUE IS THIS?

it is a subjective... not dependent really on you efforts alone... remember there are others involved, not just you.

Actually we are having more single people now than before.......but that doesnt mean that women and woman prefer to stay single..........or to be live-in lovers!

yea........things are really turning on their heads now.........

I fear that it is becos women are becoming more aware of their rights in marriages......the zombie era is phasing out gradually and the men arent taking it lying low........are they hitting back?

None of this is true

Marriage is a Virtue and a legal institution
which everyone looks forward to
Its a reminder of one's obligation and indebtedness
to ur spouse, there's more to the vows involved
than just a mere mouth say
To this effect, i assume that anyone who sees
marriage as "dieing" like U said, must have
some fears attached to this reason

Go ask ur friends, they might be nursing some fears too
Probably, undecided abt her partner

many ladies prefer to be singles not becos they dont want to get married but with d bitter experience of some marriage which they hav seen and heard.some marriage are made frm heaven, if u seen those one u will want to get married instantly but some are hell and when u come across those one's, u will swear neva to try marriage.we just have to pray tht God should should help us in our marriage as we go in to it.but to be frank marriage is sweet.

Well,in most of the marriages, men are waiting to be pleased all the time, too many compromises which women
must do, all kind of blackmails ,financial and also emotional!It's like Stockholm syndrome!
Do women really want  to depend on someone's decisions and trade their  freedom and peace for a social status?
