Additionally, many Chinese men say they would prefer to marry a woman who hasn’t had premarital sex.
The ultimate goal of most relationships in China is marriage.
in India they believe that you get married first THEN fall in love. but now in our day and age, Indian kids IN INDIA might still do the arranged marriage; might not. in India, where I'm from, dating and kissing is STRICTLY prohibited.
also, in my parent's generation, marriages were ARRANGED not LOVE.
my parents are still together, and though i find the whole arranged marriage thing COMPLETELY ridiculous, i love my parents and i want them to stay together. even nowadays...yeah I'm Asian so i can answer this.
Young Chinese adults are often under a lot of pressure from the elders in their family to find a good husband or wife and get married relatively early.
This pressure is particularly acute for women, who can be called “left-over women” if they pass the age of 26 or 27 without finding a husband.
It’s probably more possible than you think, take a look at our recent primer to living in Cambodia for example.
