A recent survey reveals that six out of ten married men and women in Korea would prefer to live alone or find another spouse if given another chance at marriage.

The survey, conducted by Now’n’Survey under the theme of Satisfaction with Married Life in Korea, was conducted from the 26th of last month to the 7th of this month. Five hundred married panel members over the age of 20 across the country, including 300 men and 200 women from across the country participated.

When asked how they would evaluate their married life overall, 47.2% answered happy, 34.2% answered average, 13% answered very happy, 4% answered unhappy, and 1.6% answered very unhappy.

When asked what the most important aspect of marriage was, communication/conversation between couples accounted for more than half, coming in at 50.2%. This was followed by economic stability (23.8%), emotional stability (10.0%), personality harmony (4.2%), relationship with spouse and family (3.6%), and birth/rearing of children (3.2%), followed by common hobbies or leisure activities (1.4%).

When asked about the most satisfying aspect of marriage, 28.8% chose communication/dialogue between couples. This was followed by emotional stability (17.6%), financial stability (11.2%), relationship with spouse’s family (10.4%), childbirth/child-rearing (9.0%), and balance between work and home (4.4%).

On the other hand, the most challenging part of married life was financial instability (21.4%). This was followed by a relationship with the spouse’s family (12.8%), the conflict between couples (10.8%), the discrepancy in hobbies or leisure activities (8.6%), household chores division (8.6%), and imbalance between work and home (7.4%).

When asked, “What efforts do married individuals make to maintain satisfaction in their marital life?,” the top response was consistent communication (23.2%). This was followed by sharing household chores and child-rearing responsibilities (19.5%), financial cooperation (16.7%), respect for privacy (13.9%), dating and leisure activities (11.2%), and supporting each other’s growth (9.5%).

The panel was finally asked a question regarding their decision if given another chance at marriage. The responses were 37% answered that they would marry their current spouse again, 32.2% answered that they would want to live alone, and 30.8% said that they would want to find a different spouse.

The responses to the above question varied by gender. Among female respondents, the most common response was to live alone, accounting for 43%. Among men, the most common response was to marry their current spouse again, coming in at 43.65%.

The margin of error is ± 4.38%p at a 95% confidence level.
