Dating: You’ve Gotta Keep Trying

The government of Japan has launched an official dating app in a bid to boost falling marriage and birth rates.

The birthgap crisis is worse in Japan, one of the earliest countries to acknowledge this in the modern world. This was documented in the harrowing documentary Birthgap. According to reports, ”last year, Japan recorded more than twice as many deaths as new babies.”

In an effort to get couples to start families, the government launched an official dating app that will use official ID to authenticate users. It will also require a tax filing to verify salary.

Some have wondered if a government should be doing this with tax dollars but without people, there will be no government or tax dollars. They’ve gotta do something! Maybe they should offer incentives such as a tax-free year for any couple that gets and stays married using the app! What do you think?
