May 1, 2012

30 stats:

81 percent of women and 71 percent of men have been married by age 30

From wikipedia:

In the past, single women over the age of 25 were sometimes referred to in Japan as a “Christmas cake”[2] based on the belief that just as a Christmas cake is worthless after December 25, single women become nearly worthless after the age of 25.
