Human beings are animals of association, so as we grow older, as we continue to change with age, there is one thing we all get afraid of ……. the fear of being alone for the rest of our lives.
Frankly, there must come a point in everyone’s life when they feel alone and wish they had someone next to their heart.
Most of the time, people don’t wish for “just someone’ around them, rather, they wish for someone they can call their own, their “better half or life companion”.

This does not indicate that men are not making it either. It just means that most of the men who are old enough to get married do not have the means of doing it because they are working tirelessly to make ends meet while some of the men want to have all the money possible before getting married.
But hey! This is the 21st century so if he does not have the means, you might as well do what the Bible says and be a helper.
Besides, you will not just be helping him, you will be helping yourself too.
