Also, of those who are 35 years old, 49.9% believe that success means freedom to arrange one’s own free time. Among those who are 35 years old, 70% believe that staying single because they have not met any suitable partner to marry is not a bad thing, and that 80% of them think that divorce is better if problems between spouses cannot be resolved amicably.
The survey of 9,270 responses between 20 and 69 years old by Taiwan’s Common Wealth magazine was conducted from July 17 to August 18, 2017.
