Getting married or remaining single are both great options for life. In fact, Paul says that both are gracious gifts of God (1 Cor. 7:6). Unfortunately neither can satisfy, fulfill, or give a person ultimate significance in life. Only Jesus can do that. In 1 Corinthians 7 Paul us that the present form of this world is passing away so we shouldn't be defined or controlled by the temporal things of this world (like one's marital status!).
