Never married

January 28, 2012

She asked him, once, why he’d never married. He half-smiled and shrugged.

The people you should be asking these sorts of questions are the ones who did get married, he said. They probably have more to say about the whole thing than I do.

But doesn’t it get lonely? she asked. What about all those nights alone in the dark?

Sometimes I’m lonely, he said. But I would rather be lonely than aggravated.
