Being single is unfair

I am single and seem to contribute more to a culture that benefits couples, married or otherwise....I pay a single supplement when traveling as rates are based on double occupancy. I pick up the slack at work for people who leave early and come in late to take their kids to piano, ballet, soccer, baseball, hockey, etc. I get tasked with taking care of aging parents because I am assumed to have the most time on my hands. When going to parties, I bring the same the same amount of food/drink a family brings. When I pass, my life's work of money goes to the government. Life in unfair.

You also pay more taxes and don’t reap the rewards of a wedding registry.

When you pass...

... is way too long to consider. The Government, which is composed primarily of family people (and now a few queer/disabled/etc. who've been "read in" to give the Government a broad base of collectivist support) who steal from everyone in order to support their families.

It's quite the little scam that "the family" has going on...

Your comment sounds like something an incel would write and it's a hair's breadth from demanding some sort of restitution just because you've CHOSEN to remain single. Life owes you nothing, it's unfair to all of us. Deal with it and get over your resentment of others.

You know

....that you can leave a will dictating where your assets go when you die, right?

It's unfair because you have let it become unfair. Who says you have to follow the "rules". Don't let people at work take advantage of you by guilting you into doing their jobs for them. Just tell them you have your own work and they can do theirs when they get back from whatever it is they are doing. When going to a party only bring a smaller portion of food or drink. Make sure that you spend all your savings before you die or if that's not possible leave all your estate to a favourite charity, but make sure you have it written in a valid will. Life is only unfair because you are letting people take advantage of you. Stop being a nice guy and look after yourself because as I learnt long ago most people could care less about you. It sounds selfish, but look after yourself and your own happiness and fulfilment before anything or anyone else.

Well, you do have the most time. I don't care what you do, if you have kids you will have less time. A lot less time. So, the question isn't whether you have more than those with kids, you do. The question is why you let others walk all over you? Is that why you remain single, it's the last defence against outside (partner) pressures on your own way? I am all for single, it's your life, but you do need to stand up and work what you are supposed to work, pick up the slack you want to pick up, get your own time for having picked up when others were not able to....or just cry single and shat upon. Like always, it's a choice.

Interesting. Know that the parents are jealous of your freedom. Know they are super exhausted, too busy to worry about your feelings! It’s ok to stand up for yourself of course. (And they should have acknowledged you for helping them out). Enjoy your life, try to be understanding and don’t be afraid to ask for the same.
