Asian parents and dating
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.If their child’s significant other doesn’t meet with the parents’ approval, continuing the relationship will be very difficult.That’s why if you’re dating someone who is Chinese, it’s very important you make a good first impression with the parents!For example, although many men get married without a house and a car, Chinese women will often say that they’re looking for these things because that’s the sort of person who probably has a stable career and will be able to provide for her and their future children in the long-term. As one contestant on China’s most popular dating show put it, "I’d rather cry in a BMW than laugh on a bicycle."
