Single Japanese women want to stay that way

According to a recent poll, most single Japanese women would prefer not to marry and think they would be happy living alone for the rest of their life.
While the newspaper that did the poll, the Yomiuri, noted that the results reflect “a recent trend among single women who no longer attach social stigma to choosing the single life,” they didn’t necessarily think this was such great news.

Japan’s government is struggling to stem a tumbling birthrate and keep the population from shrinking…
“The result depicted a tendency among younger generations to remain single, leading observers to the conclusion that the number of people who marry late will further increase and will lower the birthrate,” the newspaper said.

So ladies, I know you’re happy being alone, but screw you! The world needs populating; get to it!
