Was what one man asked me the other day. I was grabbing an early dinner and drinks at a bar-- party of one -- when a male patron walked up to me and asked if I was in a relationship. "No," I replied. Before I could follow-up with, "But I'm actually headed on a date later," he quickly asked, "How long have you been single?" I replied "For some years now."
“Nobody gets a soulmate. It don't happen! All you're going to get in life, if you're lucky, is a mate.”
This was Chris Rock's thoughts about marriage in his 2004 stand up comedy routine, Never Scared. Oddly enough, it was the exact same quote that popped in my head when I found out that Halle Berry was divorcing her husband of two years, Olivier Martinez.
