“Kon-Katsu,” short for “kekkon-katsudo,” is a spinoff from the term “shushoku-katsudo” (job hunting). Rather than waiting, many singles are taking it upon themselves to go out and strategically search for “the one” and tie the knot. Signing up with a professional marriage broker is a major kekkon-katsudo tactic.
