I have never heard that getting married is compulsory. I don't see how that is possible because the bride would have to be forced also.
The Khalsa way is the path of the householder. Marriage is a great thing for the evolution of your soul, that's why it is recommended. It helps you understand life and the Universe because you have to merge your ego to your spouse. That is practice for merging into Wahe Guru.
But like everything in our Dharma, no one can force you. It is your decision.
