Marry? or Divorce? after 3.11

3.11 massive earthquake, tsunami and Fukushima incidents are having a big effect on the Japanese family life. 

 After the quake, an increasing number of single people want to marry.  Acutually, the sales of engage or marriage rings, the reservation of wedding venues and the members who resister at  matchmaking companies have been increasing.  Singles could realize ‘how important the family is’ when they had a hard time.  Some researchers say that people want a stronger bond with others now.   

On the other hand, the number of married couples who want to divorce have been rising after 3.11.  The main reason is that the crisis showed husband’s or wife’s real nature.  Too much panic or less concern seemed to disappoint the partner.     

In crisis we would be tested our ‘human’ strength, and find what is the most important in our life.
