NO, it just metastises' the cancer to others.

Its sin given a lie as fuel to sustain.

If you have problems with loneliness, you will have problems with loneliness no matter who God brings into your life. Ask God to help you to learn how to deal with loneliness. God can help. Yes! In any case, I cannot imagine any Christian having problems....with loneliness. Not with God as your ruler, your king. Come on. He is great company, the best...Please take note: There will be times when God will withdraw His presence, FOR TESTINGS. Oh my goodness. Have fun.

God and Jesus Christ is the Healer of all ailments, Jehovah-Rapha(if my spelling is OK) especially of a mind problem like loneliness.

Wouldn't it be nice if so. Friend you can be in a room full of people yet still be lonely.

If you marry because you are lonely, you will live to regret that decision. Loneliness is something that can only be cured by God. Not a spouse. You can be alone and not be lonely. There is a difference. Marriage is Hell when you are married to the wrong person. When romance and love leaves a marriage it is double Hell.

I could not imagine life without children, I am so busy I don't have time to get lonely having said that, I totally empathise with people who do not have a companion and often wonder how I would cope.

I watched a neighbour who lives alone and I figured out that she was a only child and it was inbred in her to cope alone when her husband and motherinlaw died.

She doesn't bat an eyelid and turned down a millionaire serveral months ago, now thats contentment.

Carla, I think having children can go different ways. One might enjoy one's children, and caring for them can keep one busy in loving so one is not getting lonely.

But kids can be not quite the companionship an adult needs.

Bill, I can say for sure that it does not cure loneliness. It can even cause loneliness. I know, because I was married for many years, slept in the same bed with my husband and felt incredibly lonely. Never, ever, get married because you are lonely. It is not a cure.

I would say marry only if you cannot imagine your life without the other person. You love her and she loves you. You are able to communicate and work through disagreements without blaming, accusing, becoming defensive or sarcastic to each other. If you can disagree and work things out in love, then you have a good foundation for a happy marriage and not being lonely.

If you want to "get married" as a way to cure "loneliness", then you are "getting married" for all the WRONG reasons.

Notice the word ALL. If you are "lonely", there is something that is causing you to be "lonely". Maybe more than just one things. Resolve those issue before marriage.

Or, you'll be sorry. I was when my ex-wife divorced me.

For goodness sakes get rid of all your quirks before you get married. Get you a cabin in the woods, and stay there, until you grow out of some of your quirks. You will never get rid of all of them, because, Satan, too, forever working. But, do this. Then go out and make a life for yourselves You do not need as much as you think you need.....Listen, I know what I am saying. I have experience. Too much experience with Satan. This is mostly for unbelievers. Get you that cabin in the woods....Hallelujah, thank You Jesus+

Marriage doesn't cure anything, it only adds issues and responsibility and you have to communicate and hold yourself responsible to your partner...marriage is hard.

It does NOT cure anything!!!! Especially loneliness. I can speak from my experience. My ex-husband would play computer games or watch TV every single night and on weekends too. I was the most loneliest when I was married.
---Donna5535 on 9/13/10

No marriage is not the cure for being lonely. Get a pet if you are lonely. Fill up on the word of God get busy doing Gods work. When you are prepared for a man(woman) God will supply one for you . We are not to lose our selves just because we want a life partner, we are to blend who we are with who they are and become best friends.
---Lea on 9/13/10

If marriage is a cure for anything, loneliness is not one of them. Although i'm not lonely I have heard women who say they are, which I guess being naive I wouldn't understand, how that could be unless there are no children.
---Carla on 9/13/10

In short, no.
If you marry as a cure for loneliness, you are starting off on the wrong foot and are putting the marriage in jeopardy from the start.
---Bruce5656 on 9/13/10

It might be more truthful to say that loneliness is frequently a motivation for marriage.
---Cluny on 9/13/10

I am not sure whether marriage is or is not the cure for marriage. I have been divorced since 2001, and the Lord has yet to send me a suitable partner.

I often think of Paul's preference about staying single to better serve the Lord.
