I wonder how many in the "Don't get married" camp actually practice celibacy. I suspect that most of them go sleeping around and fornicating.
For the Christian, things aren't so easy. The Bible says fornicators don't get into heaven. So you either have to get married or be celibate. It's not so easy to just decide "I won't get married."
If you can avoid marriage and practice celibacy, that's great.
But I would rather get taken to the cleaners in a divorce than burn in hell for all of eternity because I decided to fornicate instead of get married.
St. Paul said in one of the epistles that he recommends not getting married, but it's better to marry than to burn.
