From Business Insider:
“The Japanese sex problem has become so desperate that its young population has given up on dating and is just marrying friends.
A government survey found 69% of Japanese men and 59% of Japanese women do not have a romantic partner.
One Japanese aggregator website has since been awash with stories of how people have simply married lifelong friends.
The country has one of the lowest birth rates in the world, with just 8.4 children being born per 1,000 inhabitants over the past five years.
Its population of 127 million people is predicted to decrease to 87 million by 2060.”
