The reason I don't want to marry or have kids is because I don't want a woman or kids controlling me. Is this a good excuse?

    You do have a choice !   Become a leader, as a man, not a "manager" in your marriage.  No woman should want to control a man - especially, her husband.  If a man is a real leader, she will automatically come to respect him.  Genuine leadership has a built-in confidence about it, which a woman will feel secure within it.  Insecure women feel they have to take the reins because the guy fails to demonstrate his love for her within leading her.   Love has to be felt to be accepted as love.  The children will follow their mother's lead in how they treat the father.

    You don't need to offer anyone any excuse, if you don't want to marry or have kids.

    Doesn't sound like you're good marriage material, and certainly not good parent material. But that's okay - be yourself, live your life, do your own thing. No excuse needed.

    Marriage isn't a mandatory mandate, the end all. Enjoy single life on your terms, traveling the world, dating whomever, living with people or pets, or nobody. Marriage isn't for everybody, if people realized this divorces wouldn't happen.

    you don't need an excuse to stay single but if you were in a good healthy relationship you wouldn't be controlled.

    Turns out you don't even need an excuse to choose to stay single. More and more people are making that choice these days.

    If you feel that way about marriage it is better not to get married.Any way it is fairly a childish view .Better think about the advantages of marriage or discuss the issue with your friends who are married .You will understand that your's is not a good excuse.

    You don't need any excuse at all. A reason, an opinion, an instinct, a choice... all count. No excuse needed.

    You don't need an excuse. If you don't want to marry, for whatever reason, then don't. There's no law that says you must be married. If you need an excuse for people who ask you why you're not married, just say, "I haven't yet encountered a good enough reason to do it."

    However, if you want to date and have sex, you need to be upfront with the women about your lack of interest in marriage. That may limit your options, but hey -- we all have to deal with the consequences of the choices we make.
