ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to present policy implications for policy evidence for setting plans against low fertility through analysis of factors affecting marriage intentions and marriage delays of unmarried men and women at the time when the 4th basic plan for low fertility and aged society is in progress. Under the cultural environment of marriage and parenting in Korea, the decision-making of “marriage” as a preliminary stage for “childbirth” was judged to be important, and the factors affecting the marriage delay of unmarried men and women with intention to marry were analyzed. For the analysis, the “2015 National Fertility History and Family Health and Welfare Survey”, which was surveyed and provided by the Korea Institute for Health and Social Affairs, was used. First, with regard to marriage delays, economic factors such as the justifiable perception of marriage and monthly income and employment status were found to be important factors. Second, regarding the marriage late, it was found that there is a high possibility of exceeding the ideal marriage age in case of employment in a large company or public sector. Based on the results of this analysis, first, it is important to prepare policies for employment of young people, and it is suggested the necessity of expanding policies that can be compatible between work and marriage to unmarried men and women from the viewpoint of parenting.
