Konkatsu: “We Can’t Find Men to Marry All These Women”


The recent boom in “konkatsu,” parties to help those seeking the ideal marriage partner meet, has run into trouble: reportedly, women always outnumber men by a large margin at these events.

Previously these events had been characterised by many men seeking desirable brides, but now they are said to consist chiefly of women hunting the ideal husband of their dreams, with a particular emphasis on his earning potential.

“When we organise these events, we have no trouble finding women, but can never find enough men.”

“Those using these services mostly never find a partner through them.”

The canny marriage brokers running the services, who naturally charge large fees and utilise complex contracts, are increasingly the subject of formal complaints by their customers, as they often fail to deliver any satisfactory marriage partners yet invariably expect to be paid.

2ch’s response is as interesting, and scathing, as ever:

“How the parasites weep because they can’t find a host!”

“Fools. What do they expect, running a ‘boy ranch‘ like that?”

“Why don’t they marry some of the other spare women?”

“Seems there are a few less idiot men about.”

“The only men who can take part are those with incomes over $60k. No wonder they are short.”

“Konkatsu: the new highway robbery.”

“More mass media trash. In reality, konkatsu are still not popular at all.”

“Gentlemen seeking wives, there is nothing so foolish as marriage.

Women in their twenties and thirties today are desperately trying to solve their ‘how can I find a man to leech off of?’ problem.

If you marry, in an instant you will be condemned to 30 years of forced labour. It doesn’t matter how much effort you put in or how much you make, you’ll end up with a few dollars a day for yourself.

If you ever want to buy anything, you’ll have to seek permission with bowed head from your wife.

And they’ll just reject your requests anyway.

What’s left will go on the woman and the kid without so much as a word of thanks.

That’s the reality of marriage.


Then: Took 1 hour three times a day using a pot

Now: Press a switch on a rice cooker


Then: It all had to be done by hand with a tub and a washboard

Now: Press a switch on a washing machine


Then: Had to start and tend a fire to heat the water

Now: Press a switch on a heater


Then: Everything had to be cooked by hand

Now: You can get as much as you want of anything at a supermarket

Household chores are very light work now. With convenience stores and the Internet you have even less need of a woman.

Marriage and a wife used to be ‘necessities’ to a man. Now they are nothing more than ‘life’s bad debt.’

Men! There’s no reason whatsoever left to put up with the selfish demands of these women and their insistence on marriage!”

    The poor can't find women because they want money

    Women don't realize that men see women who want money as whores.

    If you decide to get married, you're better off finding someone you can get along well with, and who makes close to the same amount of money.

    Instead of earning $60K and getting a lazy partner, You can both work to Earn around $40K each. Less laziness and more money that way. Also, with 2 people working, if one gets laid off, the marriage has less chance of failing due to finances.

    The slight issue of that is that women in Japan earn like 65% of one a man does for the equivalent job. Which means she's going to be working a whole lot damn harder for that $40K.

    Not that I'm defending the gold-diggers hunting for millionaires. Both ought to work, but one has to realize that a middle-class man and a middle-class woman make rather different salaries.

    Isn't that partially because women in general in Japan only work "until they get married" and don't plan on working their whole lives, and so pay little interest in their salaries?

    Not that it's perfectly balanced in the rest of the world - women in general seem very bad at demanding higher salaries while men are more keen on it. But I'd wager a guess it's a bigger problem in Japan than, say, England.

    That....is a very good idea. Don't forget the 'take turns caring for the house' because the home still has to be kept clean and there are kids to raise (though nurseries are there to help take care of them until they reach elementary school).

    Problem is, however, the women just want to be lazy. The men might also want to be lazy. Both are either trying to leech off each other, or avoid each other because of the (remarkably high) chances of landing a leech!

    Men think of them as whores because they are. That said I can't blame Japanese men Japanese women sound opressive. They should realy get a prenub and every time the wife is bitchy be like DIVORCE! Then it wouldn't be so bad and 2chan wouldn't have to be full of gay people.

    The problem isn't about 'poor', it's the ridiculously high monetary wealth of men that the women are seeking. They are all seeking the high class men, not the middle class men. And just how many men earn that kind of money anyway?

    Pretty much, good luck trying to marry millionaires! They are going to need it!

    What? How is just wanting money a form competition? Well maybe if they add some jobs to that ambition. But then they are still only competition if they work in the same field and for the same company.

    I think you are just saying bullshit. Make your case straight.

    Nice try, but no. It was already correct. Women who EARN money, could be considered WELCOME competition. Women who WANT money are lazy WHORES. Did I make this clear enough for you? Or should I write up a chart?

    Some examples: There are 5 or 6 girls in my school I'm interested in. One I actually saw quite a bit of for awhile. The more I learned about her though the less I was interested. She's looking for a rich sugar daddy so she can stay a kid the rest of her life like her mother did. Those are her words, not mine.

    The rest, besides being 24 and under (11 or more years younger than me), 3 of them have made it clear their parents will not except anything but same race boyfriends. This just came up by chance in some classroom discussion. I didn't find out by hitting on them.

    Lol japan:
    Women want to stay kids forever.

It is a fact that nobody wants a poor person that will always stay poor in any way because all humans are selfish and think first of themself before they think of others, so they prefer somebody that wouldn't cost them lots of money.

    I am getting the distinct impression that you don't understand that there's more to the world than is contained within the 4 walls of your room.

I see it everyday, I read it everyday and I hear it everyday"
    fixed version:
    "Yeah, women have been marrying for money since the beginning of time, but I don't want to admit I'm wrong so I'll wax philosophical about human nature and hope you don't notice I'm changing the subject."

    LOL, I thought I was the only one who noticed the discrepancy in her comment.
    Basically it all boils down to:
    Men want Wives who aren't whores, not golddiggers, have a job, and are rather attractive.
    Women want Men who aren't poor, have high income, good looks, and can maintain them financially without contributing.
    So all that=
    Men and Women don't want a financially unstable partner.
    That makes sense.
    Men and Women both want attractive partners.
    Who doesn't? But let's be realistic, if you are a good looking guy chances are you already attract good looking women and Vice-Versa.
    Men and Women want to be able to maintain a high level of living without all the work.
    Dream much guys and girls? Nothing's free, you're going to have to work.
    It seems women and men have a lot in common.

    By the way you point out what men want they actually want a women that loves them rather than just to maintain a high level of living without any work. Unless having a women that isn't a whore somehow causes you to maintain a high level of living without working.

    Also guys do the work and women don't, isn't that the main controversy here?. The problem here is that the majority of women seem to enjoy leeching off that work for however long the poor man keeps it up.
