Java: if / else not responding even with no compile errors

I wrote a simple if / else that is supposed to print the answer to the if else. but does not respond even with the correct input. I can't see what I'm missing.

import java.util.Scanner;
public class MarriageQuiz{
public static void main(String[] args){
Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);
String marStat;
System.out.print("Please enter your Marital Status (M or S) >> ");
marStat = input.nextLine();
marStat = marStat.toUppercase();
if(marStat.equals('M')){
System.out.print("You are married");
}
else if(marStat.equals('S')){
System.out.print("You are single");
}
}
}

Answer

use ""

if(marStat.equals("M")){
        System.out.print("You are married");
    }
    else if(marStat.equals("S")){
        System.out.print("You are single");
    }
