It is no surprise that many Ghanaian men are single. Yes! many. Being in a relationship comes with many responsibility and burden. Let's be honest, it's just not easy having a girlfriend in today's Ghana.
Never have it wrong, there is nothing wrong with being in a relationship especially when it brings along the joy and peace that we all yearn for.
In this article, Yen.com.gh brings you some reasons why many Ghanaian men are just not interested in being in a relationship.
Marriage comes with so many blessings but freedom is never one of them. Unlike married guys, single guys have the freedom to eat, drink with their boys anytime without asking permission from their wives. As a married man, you will always have to be available for family and especially your wife and this is just not the case with family.
There is no doubt in our minds that getting married gives you the urge to fulfill all marital fantasies with your wife. But the fantasy is mostly felt among single men who enjoy the freedom of loving anyone and anything without having to face criticism from a concerned wife.
3. Financial freedom
Is it true that many married Ghanaian men are stingy, never willing to give out? Well, maybe it is because the pressure and financial demands the family imposes on them are too much. But this is never the case with single men. Unlike married men, single men have space to spend as much as they want and also as little as they desire.
4. Not having to make excuses
Unlike married men who always have to make excuses for failure to do specific things, single men never get to do that. Being single means you take single responsibility for everything you do. You can decide to come home at dawn without wifey waiting on the couch for answers.
5. Sleeping alone
Ask any single man what he loves best about singleness and they will reveal to you it is the satisfaction of having to sprawl out of bed alone! Unlike married men, single men dictate when they sleep and wake is a treasure that single guys cherish. The ability to wake up at noon and not be judged by a girlfriend, who’s already been to the gym and back, is pure bliss.
