Asia's lonely hearts

TWENTY years ago a debate erupted about whether there were specific “Asian values”. Most attention focused on dubious claims by autocrats that democracy was not among them. But a more intriguing, if less noticed, argument was that traditional family values were stronger in Asia than in America and Europe, and that this partly accounted for Asia's economic success. In the words of Lee Kuan Yew, former prime minister of Singapore and a keen advocate of Asian values, the Chinese family encouraged “scholarship and hard work and thrift and deferment of present enjoyment for future gain”.https://www.economist.com/leaders/2011/08/20/asias-lonely-hearts?fsrc=scn/fb/te/pe/ed/asiaslonelyhearts&fbclid=IwAR2RDSAgUGyPaoxMYEXeJEHeH7aSFNwnaR-Rioim8WQ-aleyIJwRHu9AXSo

Lonely hearts for men but not for women. Women are really stepping into their power now and take on a path that makes men wonder.

Yes, because single is best life ever. We have a good job and quite success. I don't need a man who I have to take care like baby. Men in Asia are 80% lazy, and not loyal. Always have another girls after 2 years of marriage. Many of my friends are tired and hurt in their life, and men in Asia think they are kings in house. Women are servant. Anyway single is good for environment too.

How can you say Asian men are lazy? All those billionaires. Successful businessmen and professional are 98 percent men. Pls go and marry and have kid so your old age will not be depressing and lonely. Women also cheat. Don't always think it's men that play cheating game.

Go you! Don't ever let anyone tell you who or when to marry. Marry when it's right for you, or not at all, if that's what is right, for you. Marriage is hard enough, without bringing low expectations into it. I applaud strong women and their personal choices. clapping hands

Let's wait until you got 50 years old, and say the same thing, I bet you will accuse men for not being interested in marriage with you because you're too old.

Despite of what social implications it brings, It should be one person's right to marry or not. Many women end up marrying due to family or social pressures, sadly, consequences of such marriages are not reported which can have even more serious implications. Unfortunately, marriage in Asia is considered as some medal or a last aim for women rather than a bonding of love and care.

Agreed and it's the worst form of torture if not done properly.
