Bachelor’s Dilemma

Bachelor’s Dilemma

 

Q.1      What are the real problems of a bachelor?

Or       What is the dilemma of a bachelor as depicted in Hubert Gold’s “the Bachelor’s Dilemma.”2005

Or       How does a bachelor fair in American society? 2005

 

In this essay Herbert gold has analyzed the problems of a confirmed bachelor in general. A bachelor is an unmarried man. He hangs between love and marriage as an acrobat swings in a circus. He faces many problems in his daily life. He is not fairly treated in American society.

In a social gathering no body understands his position or intention well. Every one looks at him from his personal angle of view. Every one passes different judgment about him. For example, in a party a married woman admires him and considers him better than her husbands. He does not always snore like her husband. A husband takes him as a fortunate person as he is still free from the traps of a woman. A young girl finds in him a possible catch and tries to entrap him.

A sense of loneliness is another problem faced by a chronic bachelor. He is always in search of a beautiful girl who may prove ideal wife for him. But his efforts never succeed. Although he gets tension and entertainment from young ladies or all his would be wives yet he cannot get rid of boredom and loneliness. He may go on a world trip but he will be still lonely. He does not know how to spend his evenings. He is irregular in his habits. He eats unhealthy foods and often suffers from indigestion ulcer.

One of his marriage problems is to satisfy his sexual urge. He can afford to buy all luxuries of life. He keeps himself well dressed and graceful like mail models. But in his search for true love he is permanently disappointed and deceived. It is very rare that he succeeds in finding his dream girl. As compared to married man he remains dissatisfied with his achievements and often dies early.
