    As did I, but you couldn't leave well enough alone. Your injudicious tampering has scarred me with a bloodlust to remain forever unsated. Sweet dreams, kid.

    One of many, but this retains a certain courtly charm. I have reason to thank you.

    Men: Would You Marry an American Woman?[W:771]-chart-2-jpg

    By 2040, the total portion of the US population made up of people over the age of 65 will have grown to be more than 20%, with people under the age of 20 having decreased to only 25%.

    Additionally, it should be noted that your chart doesn't really show much changing in this regard. The baby boomers will eventually die off, but unless birth rates (and / or immigration) pick up to substantially, that will only be a minor relief as the generations after them speed towards retirement ages themselves.

    Here's some #'s on the COLA of Japan vs US

    Cost Of Living Comparison Between Japan And United States
    Which was kind of my point, if 2 million yen is roughly equivalent to 20k here in the United States, most unmarried Japanese men (roughly 55%, as a matter of fact) make more than that.

    It simply happens to be the case that most women prefer a man who makes something more like (using your own comparison criteria here) 40K to 60k a year, or they're content to go it alone. Considering the fact that median household (i.e. both partners working) income in the United States only falls in at roughly a little more than 40K a year in many parts of this country, this expectation would be unrealistic even here, let alone in economically ravaged Japan.

    Yes, I acknowledged that I was off by a number of years.


    Additionally, it should be noted that your chart doesn't really show much changing in this regard. The baby boomers will eventually die off, but unless birth rates (and / or immigration) pick up to substantially, that will only be a minor relief as the generations after them speed towards retirement ages themselves.
    It's not clear, but look at the 2060 chart and you'll see a bulge in people aged 20-50 which are the most productive years in a persons' life.


    Which was kind of my point, if 2 million yen is roughly equivalent to 20k here in the United States, most unmarried Japanese men (roughly 55%, as a matter of fact) make more than that.
    The 19.4% who make over 4 million yen are marrying. The problem is with the 75% who make less than 4 million, which when converted to USD (approx $40K/yr) is less than avg salary compared to the US and for a nation where the cost of living is seems to be significantly higher.

    Um -- yes? I got much of this information straight from the children. We've always made a point to not trash the exes in front of the kids. It's not cool. As the kids got older, they told me most of this. Did he never say anything bad about the exes? No, he did. But it's not like the 18 years we've been together have been one long bitchfest.
