The purpose of this study is to identify the factors affecting marriage motivation in colleger and to provide basic data for the countermeasures for decrease in marriage rate. The subjects of this study were 175 colleger from K-do. Data were collected from October 1st to October 10th, 2018 and analyzed using IBM SPSS WIN/21.0 to get frequency, percentage, average, standard deviation, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson correlation coefficient, and Multiple regression. The subjects' view on marriage was 3.35 points, view on children was 3.11 points, psycosocial maturity was 2.99, social pre-parental role recognition was 3.46, and marriage motivation was 2.81. The marriage motivation of the subjects was positively correlated with view on marriage (r=.38, p<.001), view on children (r=.50, p<.001) and psychosocial maturity (r=0.25, p=.001), and psychosocial maturity was positively correlated with social pre-parental role. The most important factor that affects the subjects' marriage motivation is their view on children (${\beta}=.407$, p<.001), followed by view on marriage (${\beta}=.329$, p<001), Gender (${\beta}=-.184$, p=.004), psychosocial maturity (${\beta}=.159$, p=009), religion (${\beta}=.126$, p=.003). The explanatory power was 52.1% (F=26.01, p<001). Therefore, a program promoting the views on children and marriage to improve marriage motivation, a customized program considering gender and religio, and further research promoting marriage motivation is needed.
