Datemate fewer Americans stay together when the marriage goes south beyond repair. They bail. Koreans stay in it, lead separate lives, korea cheat, cheat, cheat.
One only needs to look at the massive numbers of yagwons on every corner of this country. If the Koreans had the same mentality as Americans, and just bailed rather than living separate lives under one roof, the Korean divorce rate would easily surpass the American rate by a significant number.
When Americans marry, they marry and it's recorded to law quickly. Datemate Koreans marry, the popular thing is to now wait several korea, or even datemate year or more up to 2? If things don't work out, they just datemate up, and they are merely out the cost for the wedding.
And they DO split datemate. These are, for all practical purposes, divorces we don't see statistics for. This new trend is all the rage in Korea, and the stigma of divorce is what feeds it.
Try that poll in the USA, and korea what you get for a number. They may be holding datemate another, but the two are just "datemates," not lovers.

It's ok to boast about the wonders of Kimchi curing all ills to promote national propaganda, but to suggest that Korean students have 'datemates' and just meet, cuddle, and don't have sex is absolutely hilarious beyond belief. These 'datemates' of the Chosun Ilbo staff are merely female friends who don't want to bring you home to mommy and daddy.
They want the rich salarymen, regardless of the fact that you probably have a much more fun and interesting personality.
