The kinds of people who cannot get married

Advertisement

goo Ranking recently published an interesting look at what sorts of people cannot get married, for both men looking at women and women looking at men. Note that the implication here is mostly regarding people who are actively dating, not those who aren’t interested in marriage.

Demographics

Between the 31st of May and 3rd of June 2013 1,069 members of the goo Research online monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 50.1% of the sample were female, 24.8% in their teens, 24.9% in their twenties, 25.0% in their thirties, and 25.4% in their forties; there was no-one older than 49 in this sample. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample.

Here’s a bit of an odd couple:

I’m not sure if it has anything to do with the survey, but I needed a photo to brighten up the page!

    Well apparently 23 is an issue for me especially in the country I live in (but I bet I’ll have this problem in every country), 24 is me but I don’t think I’m public about it but I’d definitely tell the girl I don’t want kids & 30 sometimes I’m not always thinking about romantic stuff, to be honest I probably wouldn’t do any of the things I think of.

      Oh I forgot 16 & 20 which I’m presuming is “He cannot sense the mood” because I suck at picking up on stuff.

      You just publicly expressed your dislike of children. :/
      Get a grip.

        I don’t see what the problem is with not liking them, I have my own opinion just like you have your own. If you saw what I see you’d think the same.
