Single and satisfied

Everyone is single—that is, individual. Whether we're married, unmarried, divorced, widowed, each of us is actually, spiritually, the individualized reflection of the one indivisible God. Each of us is complete and unique. Our real identity isn't slotted into human categories.

From among the various explanations for increasing numbers of single adults in the United States, this salient point emerges: people yearn to understand and express their own individuality. Sometimes the search for this understanding is baffling, because it's approached solely from a material standpoint. The current preoccupation with self-realization often leads "me." Animal magnetism, the supposed pull of materiality, may suggest sensualism as a means of fulfillment. But this path ends in frustration and alienation.
