Single Professional Women in Asia

The Economist has a great article about how marriage is changing in Asia, “The Flight from Marriage.”   Basically many women are deciding not to get married and keep on working.  Japan, Korea, and Taiwan are at the front of this trend.  In Taiwan in 2002, for a while 27% of marriages involved foreign women (China and Vietnam).

The big question is what happens in China with the huge gender imbalance of  118 boys born to 100 girls? 

I was surprised that a person they interviewed was not actually working as a phychologist, but had studied it, and had gone back to work in the PR industry.
