JAPAN:  Japanese young people avoid to marry because of different reasons, local media cited an official survey revealed on Tuesday. 

 

According to Kyodo News Agency, One in four singles in their 30s who have never been married in Japan said they have no desire to tie the knot, citing such reasons as concerns over a loss of freedom and associated housework and financial burdens.

 

The number of marriages in the country also dropped to 514,000 in 2021, the lowest number since post-war period.

 

 

The most common reason cited by men and women in both age groups for not getting married was wanting to remain free, according to report.

“By gender, more women than men said they do not want to shoulder the burden of housework, childcare and nursing care marriage often entails while more men than women cited a lack of financial ability and job insecurity as reasons for shunning marriage,” it's said.
