China as the most population in the world, more than 14 hundred millions.Over 200 million people in China were single by the end of 2015, bringing about the fourth wave of singledom in the country.
Meanwhile, the report said more and more people, especially women, are choosing to lead a single lifestyle.
So why ?
Unmarried women in their 30s accounted for 2.47 percent of China’s entire population in 2010, which doubled the figure from 10 years prior, according to China’s 6th National Population Census, which was conducted in 2010.
A new term “single economy” has appeared in the wake of the new trend.
Stats showed that a significant portion of the single population in China freely spend on luxury items, as well as on entertainment such as going to bars and karaoke parlors.
However, experts said singledom could also create problems such as low birth rates and the fast aging of the population.
Several waves of singledom have swept over the Chinese mainland during the past decades.
The first was in 1950 when China’s first marriage law, which legalized divorces soon after the People’s Republic of China was established, brought a wave of marital separations.
The second wave came when “sent-down youths,” urban youngsters who were asked by the government to leave the cities and live and work in rural areas in the late 1960s and early 1970s, were finally allowed to return to the cities in the 1970s.
The third was in the 1990s when, as a result of the Chinese economic reforms, people started to question traditional family values and their responsibilities within family units.
