4. South Korea

It is as if a woman is being lured into a marriage in South Korea.

Similar to Japan, dating doesn’t happen until your college years in South Korea, but once people actually do start dating, it’s like the woman has a servant by her side.

It’s very common for a South Korean guy to hold his girlfriend’s handbag (just imagine your guy walking around with your designer bag…) and he does everything to make his girl happy.

But once married, the roles switch and the man expects his wife to be a more traditional woman, who cooks, cleans and takes care of the children.2

What a trap…



I live in Korea and I hope people actually don't believe this..honestly
Yah these seem pretty out of date
The article is out dated!! The part mentioned about IRAN is NOT TRUE at all!! Maybe for some families, but Now a days most of the marriages are Love Marriages and ALOT of PEOPLE DATE IN IRAN!!!

In Bangladesh it's also frowned upon to date. I don't know if the Iran customs are still active but in Bangladesh majority of the people don't like the concept of dating. When a girl reaches 20 (for girls who have no intention to have careers) their family starts to look for their husbands who are financially solvent and much older. For career minded girls, their parents start looking for their husbands usually right after they graduate university. They do allow the potential couple to talk but contact must be minimized. PDA is almost non existent. There are people who do date but they don't tell their parents until they want to marry the guy. This is solely because the concept of "dating" is not approved. I personally think dating is important. I would want to know my potential boyfriend or potential spouse before I close my eyes and marry him just because my parents think he's marriage-material for me.
