DEAR READERS: For your reading pleasure, I offer a quiz. As always, the purpose is not to judge yourself as giving a right or wrong response. It's to hold up a mirror to yourself and search within for the current truth. Yes, our feelings change, and our opinions change (or should) as we become more knowing about this life we've been given. This particular quiz is aimed at the never-married — or, if you prefer, the always-single. But enough preamble ...
— Have you chosen not to marry because you want to grow? Do you think it's possible to grow as an individual within a marriage?
— How do you intend to structure future love relationships? Does that planning include a marriage contract or another type of formal agreement?
— Have you not married because you don't want the responsibility of coordinating your sexual needs with those of another person on a long-term basis?
— Do you consider yourself promiscuous now, or having been in the past? What is your definition of promiscuity? Has that definition changed as you have grown within your singleness?
— What do you think you are missing by remaining unmarried?
— What do you think a married sex life entails?
— Do you think your sex life would change in terms of frequency and satisfaction if you were to marry?
— Why do you engage in sexual activity?
— Have you had close friendships with people who could have been sex partners? Did you become closer or more distant because of that lack?
— Would you rather abstain from or be part of casual or unloving sexual activity?
— How prepared are you to live without a mate?
— Do you plan to be faithful to your partner?
— What do you consider to be the positive aspects of your singleness?
— What would you change in society that would make a single person's sex life more guilt-free?
— Which would you prefer: one love for a lifetime or one at each stage of your emotional development?
