In Japan, 1 In 4 Singles In Their 30s Doesn't Want To Get Married: See Why

A few days ago, many of us read about a Nigerian lady who was lamenting that she would soon be 30 and has never been married or had any kid.

May be, the lady and others like her can take some solace from this: 25% of Japanese their age are thinking differently, reports the Insider:

In Japan, one in four singles in their 30s is unwilling to get married, a government survey found.

Japan's Gender Equality Bureau Cabinet Office released the survey findings in a white paper published on June 14. The survey gathered responses from 20,000 people, ranging from those in their 20s to those in their 60s, in December and January.

While the percentage of women and men in their 30s who say they have no intention of getting married is similar at 25.4% and 26.5% respectively, their reasons for not tying the knot are different.

The majority of surveyed women who said they don't want to get married said they feel they have to shoulder the responsibility of housework, childcare, and long-term care of their partners when married, the survey found.

The study found that women are also resistant to marriage due to the trouble of changing their last names. Under Japan's civil code and family register law, families have to have a single surname — and it's usually the wives who have to change their last names.

The surveyed single Japanese men, on the other hand, said they were unwilling to marry because they desired freedom or lacked financial power and job security to support married life.

In addition, 36.2% of men between the ages of 20 and 39 said they simply had not met someone they liked enough to marry. This could be because they've never dated: Researchers conducting the survey found that roughly 35% of unmarried Japanese men in their 30s have never been on a date.

In Asian countries, people rarely have children outside of marriage. And Japan's already low birth rate is expected to fall further as more people are unwilling to marry. Experts are warning that together with the country's declining population, Japan may have to brace itself for labor shortages and long-term economic problems in the future as birth rates continue to fall.

This isn't about women. It's about SINGLES (men and women).

They can't force them to marry. They will soon run out of labor force Since they rarely have kids outside marriage. I guess they'll have to turn to foreign recruitment

Japa to Japan?

this should make fp to balance the effects of the other post where a Nigerian lady was lamenting. You never can tell how many people are committing suicides for not getting married. 30 years of age is not too much to warrant a lady crying on social media. Some other people may not say it out but could DO horrible things. Thanks.

What I have come to understand in this life is, not all women will get married. Some (a good amount) will definitely end up unmarried.

And this is a fact. One of the numerous reason is that the population of women is above that of men.

Japan's population has been shrinking year on year because of this and it's understandable. That of Naija is what I don't understand.

Nigerians are not getting married but our population is increasing exponentially despite the mass migration.

What's going on?

I’m telling you, it’s a very terrible mentality that we have foisted on ourselves here. If you ask them why they got married when they are not financially stable you’d hear useless reasons like

“I don’t want to be old and training my children”

then I’d ask them ‘so you’d rather carry your wife and children along in your suffering and poverty days abi? no wahala’

Later you’d see them begging on social media and contemplating suicide. There’s even one of them here that married early and now opens threads begging for help upandan threatening suicide meanwhile that same person is campaigning for APC undecided

I won’t mention the person’s moniker.

Not a problem. Let them make their decision as it suits them. All I see is opportunity. Low birth rate in a country equals labour shortage as the article also agrees same.

Brethen, brace yourselves up for opportunities in Japan.
