    More than half of Koreans in their 20s do not want to get married or have children, a poll suggests.

    The Ministry of Gender Equality and Family interviewed 10,997 households last September and found that 53 percent of respondents in their 20s do not want to marry, while 54 percent support divorce and remarriage and 52 percent do not want children.

    Singles accounted for a whopping 30.4 percent of total households, up from 21.3 percent as recently as 2015. The proportion of married couples without children rose from 15.9 percent to 22.1 percent over the same period.
