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. What a trap…
