What? That's almost the opposite attitude to young people in England. I see pictures of revellers out for the night in pubs and clubs, flirting for all they are worth. Some young mothers in my area have achieved their aim by getting pregnant. After the birth of their child, they enjoy a free life, supported by social services and living in a flat of their own. Sigh! It's a shocking state of affairs.
More than 46% said relationships are "bothersome", while 45% said they would prefer to focus on their hobbies. Is this what affluence, and reliance on technology, does to a nation?
Some young Japanese people complained about not enough places to meet a potential partner, while more than 34% expressed concern over a "lack of personal charm". Um! What does that mean? They are ugly? They dress in a shabby way? Their mode of speech is rude?
The percentage of people who have never married by the age of 50 is also increasing, the study confirmed, while romance is even more difficult to find for people who have a limited income. That's because anyone who is looking seeks a wealthy partner.
The government has attempted a series of campaigns to encourage couples to have more children. They've insisted companies send their staff home at 6pm,. Also, they've increased child allowances and day-care places.
Without enough upcoming young Japanese people to replace retirees, the economy will suffer. The aged will be without funds to support them.
In England, the opposite occurs with the same end result. With so many migrants pouring in, all claiming UK's free National Health Benefits, the money is used up at an accelerating rate. There will shortly be no funds left to support Britain's original aging population, who have paid into the insurance for the whole of their working life.
Stay tuned for the next episode. Will governments in every country solve their problems? Perhaps they could work out a national exchange between young people to instill different ways of thinking. Maybe Japan could offer to set up young mothers in a life of freedom. As an author, I'd love to hear your solution. Or what happens in your country.
