I can't allow myself to be depressed that I am alone. So I live in my world where I am happy to be alone. But I concede that it would be better to have one I loved.
Oh! Having a family is not a commercial deal. It is one of the strongest institution in the human society on the roots of which the entire world is running. After money the strongest legal institution is 'Marriage and Family'.
I used to have a family, a wife and kids but they've all gone now.
I agree with what you say, apart from I wouldn't want my ex wife back, I do miss being part of a family though instead of gate crashing everyone elses.
i can only assume as i wouldn't know, i'm always alone
