Do motherboards with dual-channel need two sticks of ram to run?

I´m going for 8 ram now, and my intention is to upgrade to 16gb next year, so I just got a doubt, do mb need 2 rams to work? I mean all mb nowadays have dual if not quad, so will it star with only 1?
( I know its stupid but I suddenly thought of this and there is no info anywhere). Will it work in single-channel?

It will run one stick in single channel, but be aware that adding a second stick later may be a gamble..it's always best to get matching pairs of sticks to ensure best compatibility.. dual channel can be finicky.
