marriage +‎ -less

Examples

  • MrsWhatsit, just because some children are in marriageless households does not refute the claim that the primary purpose of marriage is for children, same as you can't refute my claim that I water my yard for green grass, despite not all grass getting watered.

    Why not engage with me instead of trying to make me into your enemy?

  • For thou art among the dead, and the greatest part of my life is passed in groans, and wailings, and nightly tears; marriageless, childless, behold, how like a miserable wretch do I drag out my existence forever!

    The Tragedies of Euripides, Volume I.
