"Do I have to marry to have children?"

This week's broadcaster Sayuri's controversy over unmarried birth was hot.

On May 13-28, the National Statistical Office announced the '2020 Social Survey Results', which surveyed and counted about 38,000 people aged 13 and over nationwide. In this survey, 3 out of 10 citizens were'not married. It was surveyed that they thought that they can have children without having to.

When asked the same question, it was 22% in 2012 and 24% in 2016, but this year 31% shows that public opinion that sympathizes with unmarried birth is increasing every year.

Consciousness about marriage itself, when I investigated...

51% of the respondents said that they should be married, and 41% said that they may or may not be married. In particular, there was a large difference in perception about marriage between unmarried men and women. Among unmarried women, only half of the respondents who said they had to marry among single men, 22% of them thought that they should marry. 62% of unmarried women think that'marriage may or may not be done', and 10.5% said they should not marry at all. On the other hand, 68.0% of those who think,'If you marry, you should have children', a 1.6 percentage point decrease from two years ago.

After marriage, what is the public opinion on the'housework sharing', the element of conflict between couples?

63% of people think that'you should share the lyrics fairly.' However, researching the facts, not opinions, found that only 20% of the households were actually sharing the housework fairly. Twenty-one percent of husbands and 20 percent of wives answered that they share their lyrics fairly. However, 43% of respondents said they share the housework fairly among those aged 19 to 29. You can see that the younger the generation, the more equally sharing the housework.
