Japan and Korea have similar sexuality-related issues, such as declining birthrates, increasing ages of marriage and childbirth. The purpose of this study is to clarify the feelings of Korean international student couples living in Japan about topics such as marriage, family planning, work-life balance, and sexual concerns in Japan and South Korea. Based on our study, we consider future supports for these students’ sexuality. Materials and Methods: The study targeted four unmarried South Korean couples (eight people) aged 20–35 and conducted a qualitative descriptive study using semi-structured interviews.

The participants thought about when they want to get married; reasons why they want to get married; anxiety about marriage; hopes to be mother or father, timing of having children; thoughts on child-rearing; and hopes about having children.

Discussion: This study demonstrated that South Korean international student couples in Japan have hopes for marriage and family planning.
