    The increase of male births can be linked to a historical preference for sons, a decline in birth rates driven by gender selection preferences and advancements in technology, such as ultrasound, that facilitate gender selection, according to the report.    The report also emphasized that the prolonged period of a skewed sex ratio at birth since the 1970s has had a significant impact on marriage rates. Regions with high marriage rate imbalances are characterized by particularly skewed sex ratios at birth during the 1980s and 1990s.

    So basically a lot of people saw a vagina in the ultrasound and decided quit and restart the level.

    I assume this increase in men being single has led to increases in male loneliness and subsequently the massive chauvinist backlash and rightward shift that’s been happening in S. Korea.

    Since the 1970s, the sex ratio at birth in Korea has exceeded the natural ratio — 104 to 107 boys for every 100 girls.

    The short explanation

        I don’t understand you…

        If 80 out of 100 women are in a relationship, we can assume that 80 out of 104 men are in a relationship.

        Therefore, 20 women are single, and 24 men are single. In this example, there are 20% more single men than single women.

      Improving relations between China and Russia/Eastern Europe is the solution to both countries’ demographics problems.

          Cross marriage, I have more male and you have more female, lets mingle.

          That being said, there are a lot of marriages between Chinese men and Russian women.

            Somehow I doubt it’s the gender imbalance that is the issue, as opposed to the underlying socioeconomic situations of each country

              You uh … not understand what the word “supposing” means? Nevermind the later use of the word “were”. Where did you get the idea that I actually believe this idea?

              Someone asked what another commenter meant, and I explained it. My personal opinion was not solicited, but I implied my doubt anyways. How you and one other missed it is beyond me.

    And this is only lvl 1 Patriarchy. At lvl 2 a man may marry as many wives as he wants, and the young single men are just war fodder.
