In 2013, there were twice as many marriages, and in 2021, only 7.636 million.

The number of divorces in 2022 also reached a considerable figure: 2.1 million.

According to demographics expert Dong Yuzheng, there is a growing trend of delaying marriage every year among Chinese youth. And if in 2010 the average age of the couple was 24.89 years, in 2020 it has exceeded 28 years.

Dong Yuzheng also pointed out that the number of single, single and childless people is gradually increasing.

Surprisingly, modern China faces serious demographic problems, brought about by the “one family, one child” policy introduced to the country in the late 1970s.

In 2013, the authorities allowed couples to have two children, but in the event that at least one of the spouses was the only child in their family. And since 2016, all couples can have two children. But this, alas, did not cause a boom in the birth rate, on the contrary, from year to year they began to give birth less and less.

According to the State Statistics Office, in 2022, the country’s population decreased for the first time in 60 years to a mark of 1,411,750,000 people.
