Chinese population registering for their first marriages dropped to bellow 11 million for the first time in 2022, a 55.9 percent decrease from the peak of 23.85 million in 2013 over the consecutive past nine years. Experts think it’s a comprehensive result from the decrease of young people of marriageable ages and some people’s waning desire to get married.

According to China Statistical Yearbook 2023 published by the National Bureau of Statistics, 10.51 million people registered their first marriage in 2022, a decrease of 1.06 million from the number in 2021, accounting for a 9.16 percent drop. It was also the first time that the Chinese population registering for their first marriage dropped to below 11 million, according to a report by yicai.com.

The number of those getting married has been continuously decreasing in recent years and Chinese people have been putting off their registration for the first marriage to later ages. Statistics show that 6.83 million Chinese couples tied the knot in 2022, a drop of 10.6 percent from 2021.

Despite that the number of marriage registration includes both those getting married for the first time and those who are remarrying, the former is more relevant to the statistics of newborns.
