Lives of Unmarried Women in their 30’s and 40’s


In Korea, of 7.80 milion women in their 30’s
and 40’s. 17.176% or 1.38milion are singls. Now in the 21st century marriage is no longer
a necessity but rather an option, and many women choose to remain single. Yet, there is not enough social security for
them, creating a blind spot of the structural system. Let’s learn more about the issue, and what
needs to be done to improve the current conditions. Jeong Eun-mi is a 41 year-old florist who
dreamed of becoming a good wife and wise mother as a child. Like the majority of people, she thought she
had to get married and form a family when she was younger. But her perspective has changed a lot. “I gained a genuine passion and desire for
my career in my early 30’s. Therefore, I naturally focused more on my
work than romantic relationships, and time passed very quickly.” Jeong is not the only one who chooses to remain
unmarried. Many women in their 30’s and 40’s do,
too. According to the National Statistical Office,
1 million 384 thousand and 47 women in their 30’s and 40’s were single as of 2015,
and that figure is more than twice that of 10 years ago. The drastic jump largely resulted from women’s
increased labor force participation. Also, Korea remains a patriarchal society. “Marriage is not only a union of two lovers
but of families, which I found very burdensome. I wasn’t sure if I could take care of all
the things that occur in my husband’s family while pursuing my career.” Currently, 40% of female workers have irregular
jobs and earn about US$1,500 per month on average. Indeed, the low income has a negative influence
on housing stability. “The majority of single women live alone,
and their residential environments vary depending on economic status. Naturally, there are concerns about women
being targets of sexual assault and other crimes, especially for those living in poorer
areas, as it is clear that the number of violent crimes against women has been increasing recently.” A recent survey conducted by the Seoul metropolitan
government on women in their 40’s and 50’s living alone, only 36.9% responded that they
were preparing for old age. Also, 81.2% of them answered that they were
unable to prepare for their later years because they couldn’t afford to do so. But there’s barely any governmental support
for them. 39-year old Kim Hyun-joo works for the cooperative
society of an animal hospital in Seoul. And she mentioned that Korean single women
are stuck in the blind spot of social welfare. More than anything, the biggest fear comes
from the fact that there are many structural limits if they suffer from any diseases. “If I need medical surgery, only my direct
family members are eligible to sign the consent form. I currently live with my friend, who is single
as well, but she would not be eligible to sign the form even if my life depended on
it. ” As a cat owner, Kim formed a gathering of
fellow single women with animal companions. The best thing about this gathering is that
they have good neighbors to rely on in times of emergency, who also have the same interest
and concerns. “There are certain hardships we experience
because we chose to remain unmarried. We share those things, relate to one another
and get healed along the way. ” Outside the welfare system, single women have
to find their own means to secure their futures, and they’re calling on a change in the family-centered
social policies. “Because the tax system, welfare policies,
and even the medical insurance system are designed for families, they alienate unmarried
women and single-person households. Therefore, our society needs to find ways
to embrace and support them rather than merely trying to treat the symptoms.” For marriage to be truly an option for both
genders, the general perception towards singles should be transformed along with new practical
policies to meet their needs.

  1. So there are many women to choose from, but you have to convince them to leave their jobs. Why cant they work and have kids? If i were government, i would promote pregnant working. Something else is causing this, probably inflation. Here in America we are beginning to see unrest due to inflation in insurance, housing, and cars which harm people the most.

  2. God is very broad-minded. Sexual organs has been given to test our purity and degradation for temptations not to produce. God is ocean of love, Lust is opposite to Him. He loves those who have love and innocence of children. God created zillions of planets with His broad mindedness. Narrow minded cannot do it. Society's rudimentary views have increased population of this planet to 8 billion. Overpopulation is decreasing natural resources that causing evilness in society

  3. What's the point? Family, Children? Is it even worth it, are men really happy with those things?
    -Other countries are catching on.

  4. Well they are strong and independent untill — oh , no money, loneliness, bad financial, relationship and life choices catch up.

    Apparently your cats cannot feed and comfort you enough.

    As I told one of my exes, a cat lover, even your cat doesn`t love you when you stop feeding her 😀

    btw, the cat comes to me regularly to snuggle, without me feeding her ever 😀

  5. Its a long time to go from 30-120 being single. Not to mention all the younger women are going to see older women and avoid that fate like the plague. So thankyou dumb women for teaching the younger generation of women.

  6. Well ladies – you didn't prepare for your old age because you were being strong independent women that didn't need a man in their lives to be happy. Except you forgot about who would be supporting you in your old age.

    You created the situation, and since we are constantly told that women are smarter than men, you need to fixi it yourselves. Anything men would do would be the patriarchy in action.

  7. So..there are more rules, laws and regulations that have to go their way? What else?
    Single men in 30's and beyond are ridiculed in the eyes of the law. There is even talk of single man taxes…How dare you not mary and give security to one of these hags.

  8. boo hoo, wahman doing it tough as a result of their life choices. Maybe they now realise they cant have their cake and eat it. Runs off to the .gov for help like every other statist moron.

  9. A word is enough for the wise and It is also important to apply wisdom when dealing with our partners. I got help from cyberhackinggenius as he helped cloned my cheating wife’s phone and I got access to all her phone text messages and social media chats without touching her phone. My wife was a cheating Narcissist but I'm glad to uncover her secrets and Infidelity. All I did was share my wife’s phone number with Cyberhackinggenius. I was able to read her recent and deleted messages from my phone without laying my hands on her phone and she has no idea her phone has been cloned. I discovered that my wife has been in a long term affair outside our marriage with so many proofs. You can contact this great Hacker Gavin via Gmail (cyberhackinggenius) or text and speak to him directly on his phone and WhatsApp : +19256795146.

  10. This is being spun, it's men who aren't wanting to get married. Why bother when the system is geared towards women. It's rigged against men, and men realize why bother playing a game that's rigged against you

  11. I don't know about Korea, but here in north america it does not pay for men
    to get married. With the way the laws are, the court system, men are screwed

    from the start. But thanks to women, more men are going mgtow and are
    happier for it.

  12. When the Rothschild females reach the age of majority their trust inheritance ends. The only option these Rothschild women have if they want their standard of living to continue is to marry back into the family. Family inheritance only passes down the male line….

  13. Most of the women who ride the cock carousel, end up becoming spinsters in their 30's and 40's because they hit the wall and are kicked off of the cock carousel. A man of value doesn't want to pay full price for a half eaten steak that is mostly grissle, a used rental car or a burnt pie. One of those walled out pigs is literally a cat lady!

  14. Men are not getting married because the system is RIGGED against US. ITs not worth the headache, divorce, women's attitude, winning, complaining. Women are just not worth it, they dont care about the men they are with just how he can take care of her and then cheat on him and blame HIM for it.

  15. Sorry your early thirties are too late women's looks and reproduction and value NSAID in their late twenties 25 to 27 so usually if a woman is not married by 30 it's a red flag

  16. People who enjoy being alone are too busy enjoying their lives alone to keep on telling us how much they enjoy being alone. FACT!

  17. They don't have a man to channel all of their horrific negativity onto, so they take out their mentally neurotic, emotionally unstable feelings out on themselves and everyone around them. MGTOW is working.

  18. No matter what part of the world women live, they a want daddy government to take care of them because they are as irresponsible as children. They all think the world should fix all of their stupid decisions made in life. That’s called being weak, delusional and entitled. Doesn’t sound like empowerment to me.

  19. So let me get this straight, you're not getting married because there isn't enough fairness and help and stability provided by the government and you also lack rights to go through with it?

    That is the majority of men's issues around the world. But let's not talk about how men need help right? Lets just give all these Korean women all the rights so marriage plummets even further because men will start refusing to marriage because they will be too afraid to marry someone knowing they can lose everything just because the woman says so. Maybe you should focus on being a good partner and mother if you want to get married to a man. The real reason is you focused on work and didn't want to be a wife and a good mother and now that you're 30-40+ you're upset because you can't find a partner because you're at the age where men stop finding you attractive. That's your fault

  20. Why can't someone catch that little cunt jumping on car bonnets and smash every bone in his body, so that he will have to crawl around like a grub for the rest of his life.

  21. Nothing should be done about single woman's situation. You are responsible for yourself. These single women made their beds, now they have to sleep in theme.

  22. The comment section below is to funny. I've tried being nice to women. After a 8 year horrible marriage dating at least 30 women in the last year, I've come to the conclusion all women are selfish and only think of themselves. I didn't relise how bad it's gotten. Online dating has really ruined women. Are future is fucked

  23. Media always take the side of women, they say for example "they chose to be single" but in the reality MEN who chose not to wife up women in most cases because of unfair laws and the poor benefit/risk ratio, when women were women our fathers used to marry them, since women became men we men do not see them as mates anymore. #mgtow

  24. Feminism makes these chicks masculine. No man wants a woman trying to compete with him for power. The made their bed so its time to lay in it🙂

  25. Muaaaaahahahahahaha. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😈😈😂😈😈. Tears of joy. 😂😂😂😂😂😭😭😭😂😂😂😂😈😈😈💪

  26. Well she going to die by herself cutting leafs off flowers 💐🤷🏾‍♂️ sounds boring ( 🧟‍♂️ 🐈💐😵) women are losing it out u

  27. MGTOW movement created a huge ripple! Stung these self absorbed parasitic creatures. Now they're about to start marrying dogs and chandeliers! 🤣😆 Then divorce them for and takeoff with their crystals and dog biscuits 🤣✌

  28. get off the carousel and lower your standards..stop thinking of Chads and Tyrones..have a few kids .job done…or end up with cats.

  29. None of them are single, they r still involved with men. Still having sex. The men won’t commit or just don’t meet their ridiculous standards.

  30. What's this social security stuff. When you choose to be single ladies you are announcing to the world and yourself that YOU are your social security. Otherwise rather than marry women are just playing grown up.

  31. If that first hawt florist gal didn't think she could take care of her husband's family, couldn't she find an orphan to marry?
    As for the crazy cat ladies, you chose your cats over financial stability. Deal with it.
    Couples producing children are far more valuable to a society than singles not having kids. Resources should be directed to where the most benefits are, and old, dried up, man hating hags are of benefit to no one.

  32. the trust is that,they do not want to take responsibility for family,children even cooking.they prefer funny time,going to restaurants,shopping and etc.when they choosing man they first look their economical situation.(salary,house,car).

  33. Woooo some of these MGTOW profile pics are hideous lol the comment section got beat with the ugly stick😂😂😂😂 no wonder these guys are miserable and alone 😂😂😂😂😂

  34. "Women choose to not be married" hahaha. Is that what they tell themselves nowadays with the worldwide explosion of MGTOW?

  35. They put their careers ahead of their biological needs. The most important part of life is being biologically successful. Getting rich is fine but truly successful people are ones who pass their genes on

  36. I mean if women actually listen to men instead of rebelling and always trying to argue with us with our logical rhetoric they would have the things they want and also have the things they need like security and a sense of being taken care now these bitches complain because they begged for I dependence but as they think it’s easy because men have been doing it for centuries they are now seeing how great it is. Every time a women opens her mouth and it’s not positive I just walk away in a instance.

  37. this video is about single woman but most of the comments are by pathetic mad mgtow men
    Cry away motherfuckers 😭😂
