Absolutely. They chose the normal life but that normal life is tough. So when you come along and say, nah, it devalues their choice if you "get away with it"... and are accepted by society. It is important to them that you be as miserable as they are or... an outcast from society.

If you want to be single you must pay for it.

Just about every fringe group under the sun is more accepted as long as they have someone with them. Every notice that?
