    No. As in they cannot give birth to more than two kids. And they have to be either two boys, or a boy and girl each. Or is it no longer like that?

    China's birth policies aren't that simple. In urbanized areas you can only have 1 child. In more rural areas you can have 2 if the first child isn't male.
    However, the rules tend to vary from area to area and the degree of enforcing them varies too.
    Recently, the policy has been changed i some areas because of the negative growth rates.


    Anyway, back on topic. All of you who say that it's pretty much the same as in the Western world are wrong. There are large differences between the status of women in the Western world compared to Asia/Japan. It IS true that more and more women are becoming more independent in these modern times but the difference is still pretty big.
    Until VERY recent history, the Japanese never had the ideal of marrying out of love. It was an arrangement between families.

    Yeah, I heard about that. But I didn't think it'd be recently that they'd finally figure out that they don't have to do that. I'm glad that they can marry out of love. It's what is best for themselves, anyhow. Well.. for some people, anyway.

    Considering the problematic increase of isolation and loneliness I'm not sure the Japanese adapt well to that system. =\

    Hah. When you've been to Japan and seen all the women running around doing their shopping and stuff, you'll find it difficult to picture them all getting married, settling down and juggling looking after babies and work, yadda yadda yadda. It just wouldn't seem right. They wouldn't have as much time as they do now for themselves. And then I suspect Japanese women might stop looking so immaculate.

    Question Re: Marriage life on Japan

    So basically the women don't change their lives rithm when they get married?

    I was told that japanese women had to left their jobs and studies (if they were studying) once they get married to dedicate their lives to the house life and the husband.... and that they had to bow to their husband....

    Is that true all of it, part of it or is it true at all??

    I was really astonisheed when I heard that.... so that's the reason of my question....

    Re: Marriage life on Japan

    Well logically someone's got to take care of the household and the kids, so there's got to be some kind of compromise on either the wife's or the husband's part... and Japan is not the kind of place where you're likely to find a working woman married to a man who stays at home and cooks and cleans. That said, I wouldn't be surprised if there were women who leave their jobs/studies (that happens everywhere, not just in Japan), but no, I doubt it's something that's characteristically Japanese.
