Thought this blurb might resonate with some people on this board so I am posting it here:

Quote:
DEMOGRAPHICS: China’s ‘leftover women’, unmarried at 27.

The proportion of unmarried men that age is higher – over a third. But that doesn’t mean they will easily match up, since Chinese men tend to “marry down”, both in terms of age and educational attainment.

“There is an opinion that A-quality guys will find B-quality women, B-quality guys will find C-quality women, and C-quality men will find D-quality women,” says Huang Yuanyuan. “The people left are A-quality women and D-quality men. So if you are a leftover woman, you are A-quality.”

But it’s the “A-quality” of intelligent and educated women that the government most wants to procreate, according to Leta Hong-Fincher. She cites a statement on population put out by the State Council – China’s cabinet – in 2007.

“It said China faced unprecedented population pressures, and that the overall quality of the population is too low, so the country has to upgrade the quality of the population.”

Those are some ugly broads in the article. That said, what is your point with this article? Do you have commentary or are you acting as a new service?

I don't know. It seems to be a problem with America with professional women, especially black and hispanic women.

You don't know why you posted it? Good grief, thanks for wasting my time.

There have been many reports about Chinese family preferences of boys over girls that there will be a HUGE, HUGE shortage of girls to marry in China in the near future?

^ This is called hypergamy. The A quality women refuse to marry B, C, and D quality men. And D quality men can't even get the attention of a C quality woman, let alone an A quality woman.





Top comment taken from article:

"This article gives me hope that I may soon fulfill my adulthood dream of marrying an intelligent, financially independent, emotionally secure, non-overweight woman who will not look down on my aspiration to become a house-husband. All I need to do now is learn to speak Mandarin and move to China.
"


^^ Yea, good luck with that buddy.... Getting married to a Chinese woman is completely different than getting married to a Western woman. In China, if you marry a girl, you also marry HER ENTIRE FAMILY. People in her family will be hitting you up for money (even more so if you're a white foreigner), they will be asking for favors, and they might even move into your home for long periods of time. The thing is, you really can't refuse because you must save face in order to not embarrass your Chinese wife in front of her family.

Google it. Professional black and hispanic women do have trouble marrying because of similar dynamics of not having a large enough pool of successful men from their cultures to date from. To a certain degree, there is also a class of professional white women who also never marry because they have a hard time finding someone compatible without marrying too far down the chain.
