Adopted adult dating site
I was adopted as an infant, during a time when adoption was still shrouded in secrecy.My birthmother kept her pregnancy hidden from her family for nearly seven months.My parents felt they were being "open" when they told me I was adopted, but no one helped me understand what adoption was.None of my friends were adopted, or maybe they just weren't talking about it.Yet, oddly enough, some 98 percent of the individuals adopted are highly intelligent men in their 20s and 30s.An age-old relic of Japanese primogeniture, the tradition of electing a mukoyoshi (or ‘adopted son-in-law’) sees highly-placed, business-owning families legally adopting a well-educated young man into the clan with a view to him inheriting the business later in life.
In Japan, there is a several-hundred-year-old tradition in which businesses adopt their executives so companies or institutions are "family-run" groups. Money and assets were traditionally passed through male lines in the family — starting with the eldest.Many family firms – car-maker Suzuki, Matsui Securities, and giant brewery Suntory – break the rule of steady dynastic decline, or what is sometimes cruelly dubbed the "idiot-son syndrome". Remarkably, more than 90 per cent of those adopted were adults.The practice of adopting men in their 20s and 30s is used to rescue biologically ill-fated families and ensure a business heir, says Vikas Mehrotra, of the University of Alberta, the lead author of a new paper on the Japanese phenomenon of adult adoptions."We haven't come across this custom in any other part of the world," he says.Though the phenomenon has been previously documented, its impact on economic competitiveness has not.
