When Japanese women want to divorce

Advertisement

I did the men looking at women version of this goo Ranking recently, so to balance things up, here is when women feel that it is time to split with their husbands.

Demographics

Over the 29th of February and the 1st of March 2012 1,175 members of the goo Research monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 61.4% of the sample were female, 10.0% in their teens, 16.5% in their twenties, 29.3% in their thirties, 24.1% in their forties, 10.6% in their fifties, and 9.5% aged sixty or older. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample. This survey is for women only.

Curiously, although woman’s snoring featured in the other survey, in this one men’s snoring doesn’t, thanksfully!

    I have to admit, #17 had me confused. I checked the original Japanese and it was exactly how you put it– as clear as day. I find that a really strange reason to want a divorce! I didn’t realize that it was considered a bad thing to get along with your own family. I’m assuming that is for people living with their spouse’s parents/family.

    At any rate, thanks for translating another interesting survey.
