In fact, their population problem has become such a serious issue that their 127 million population is predicted to drop to 87 million by the year 2060.Although faced with the current problem, the National Institute of Population and Social Security in Japan revealed that 80% of unmarried Japanese want to get married., young Japanese men and women are “giving up dating and marrying friends.” Because of the country’s low birth rates, it looks like the young Japanese population has just settled to tie the knot with their lifelong friends.Japan has one of the lowest birth rates in the world with only 8.4 children born for every 1,000 inhabitants which has lasted for the last five years.He then comes up with a plan to introduce Joo Jang Mi to his family, believing that they will never be able to accept her as their daughter-in-law.
Then we had our own 8 children and before we knew it – the subject of girls, boys, love, and marriage came up. While it’s tempting to try and tuck love into some tidy box, it will never work like that. Rather than depending on someone else’s “step-by-step”, listen to the Spirit and how He is guiding. The world wants you to think that your happiness depends on finding the perfect guy – or girl. If you are a believer in Christ, then your joy is found in Him. Read the classic love stories found there, follow the instruction of the New Testament, and don’t forget the wisdom found in the book of Proverbs.
As an alternative solution, people have resulted to doing what they coined “kousai zero nichikon” which is roughly translated to “marrying without dating.”In recent weeks, people have posted stories like someone marrying a friend of 10 years to website Matome Naver.
In 2015, Japanese actress Maki Horikita married her co-star Koji Yamamoto after dating for just a month.
And even worse, it seemed that the harder I tried to be sentimental and lovey-dovey, the less it was reciprocated. Or, once we had a daughter, when I shared the responsibility of watching over her. Because as our marriage progressed, I found myself offering to help out around the house more and more. It took me longer than I care to admit to understand what was happening. Through giving, through doing things for my wife, the emotion that I had been so desperately seeking naturally came about. An emotion that, once had, somehow magically stays within a marriage forever. And I’m saddened to think about how much those messages bounced around in my head for so long.
Why wasn’t I getting reciprocal lovey-doveyness when we were first married? From Disney movies to my favorite shows like “The Office” to practically every pop song released, love is constantly sold as an emotion we have before we’re married.
