It’s easier to make friends in Taiwan than you might think.Taiwanese women are marrying later and less often as their economic status advances, amid government concerns about a drop in the birth rate and its impact on productivity.Only two fifths of women surveyed earlier this year by the education ministry said they imagined married people could live better than singles, local media said.Taiwan's growing single culture means that fewer people are marrying early enough to have children.And as a result, demographers estimate that by 2035 Taiwan will be the world's oldest society.Whether you're in a relationship or not - that's your own business, right?
