There are many advantages of having a Chinese wife, but there are also a number of issues which can put a lot of pressure on gentlemen seeking a Chinese partner. So if you have it in your mind to find a beautiful Chinese girl for marriage, you should consider carefully about these following points and how to handle them according to your own situation.
Owning a house
Chinese women, often guided by their parents, normally require a partner to be economically stable before considering marriage. This means that the man should have purchased a house where the couple can live after the wedding. But for the majority of regular workers in China’s major cities like Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, this can be an insurmountable obstacle. House prices in these major cities has skyrocketed in comparison to incomes over the past 10 years, with 1 square meter often costing more than US$ 3,000, and the price of a small condo downtown easily $US 200,000 or more. It’s no wonder why people are staying single longer and so many Chinese women are having trouble finding a suitable partner.
Approval from the family
Getting married to a Chinese girl is kind of like getting married to her entire family, because family ties are very close in China! This also means that winning the approval of the girl’s parents is a prerequisite for any successful marriage. But you’re not alone in feeling the pressure from the parents, Chinese ladies also feel a lot of pressure from their parents to find a partner and get married as soon as possible, to settle down and have a stable life.
Having kids young
In Western countries, it’s normal and even desirable for a woman to have her first child in her 30’s, since she is more financially and emotionally secure. However, Chinese ladies usually want to have Children in their mid-twenties, sometimes even sooner. So if you marry a Chinese girl in her early 20’s, she probably sees children in the picture pretty soon. Similarly, almost every Chinese lady does want to have children, as this is an important traditional cultural value.
Supporting her family
There’s a saying in Chinese, “Raise children to protect yourself from old age.” This traditional idea held by many Chinese people, particularly older generations, is that couples should raise children so they will have someone to take care of them when they get old. Younger generations are also instilled with a strong sense of filial piety. So, Chinese ladies often bear the task of caring for their parents when they get old. And if you marry a Chinese girl, you’re taking on some of her responsibilities as well, so it’s best to be prepared for this possibility.
