Are Singles the Invisible Population? Why No One Wants to Talk About It


About the Author


Our mission is to restore the integrity of individuals, spouses, and families that have been affected by pornography and pornography addiction. Integrity Restored provides education, encouragement, and resources to, break free from pornography, heal relationships, and to assist parents in preventing and responding to pornography exposure which is so devastating in the lives of our children. We also hope to be a resource that assists clergy in assisting families at the parish level, so that the domestic church truly becomes what it is, the human space in which we encounter Christ.

Oh man, this was me all through my 20s, 30s and most of my 40s. The Church was all about children and families, and then there was me. I mean, I did have a few chances to get into a bad marriage, but I could predict it wouldn’t work and called it off. This is what dating is all about, giving you the chance to check each other out. I was part of an 18-35 young adult group, and I had a lot of fun and soulful times, but I “graduated” without meeting the right woman by the cut-off age. And then I felt penalized for avoiding bad marriages because there was nowhere for me. I often felt that, if I did get married and got divorced, at least I would have a LOT of things in common with other singles. In fact, MOST of the “singles” in my area were really divorced. I was always the token never-married dude. Yes, God can use singles. But too often, the regular job sucked up any of that energy. I was often called on to work weekends and overtime because the boss didn’t want to deal with heat from married co-workers’ spouses. I am SOOO glad I did find my wife in 2003. We got married in 2006. I was 48, still never-married, she was 45, twice divorced. Some rocky adjustment, but I’d hate to imagine where I’d be now without her.
