Editor's note: Click here for the view from the other side of the aisle: 10 reasons a married woman longs to be single again.

10. Sex

5. No longer having to kvetch to girlfriends about appalling men

4. Being heard and deeply understood

3. No longer having to loiter on the synagogue steps or go on dates with men who hide their Streisand collection

1. No longer having to obsess about strangers' germs
