Time for a bit of hard evidence, solid statistics and insightful viewpoint !
A great article from the Economist on why women rejects marriage in Asia !
"That’s partly because, for a woman, being both employed and married is tough in Asia. Women there are the primary caregivers for husbands, children and, often, for ageing parents; and even when in full-time employment, they are expected to continue to play this role. This is true elsewhere in the world, but the burden that Asian women carry is particularly heavy."
Amen !!! Someone finally gets it !!!! The above example given may be specifically for Japanese women but as a Singaporean women I relate to that too !

If the social expectations and pressures on women in Asia doesn't move ahead with times, then the women themselves will move on alone, on their own ! With dire consequences of course.. without babies and all.. .. ?
Hmm.... food for thought.
Anyway, singles.. don't forget to start taking out that retirement policy now !!!
