This should be called “Love China Style”. What romantic and deep people these Chinese. The article below talks about the fact that in one of China’s largest cities, the women will only marry a man who owns a home. That gets a bigWTF? What about love, respect etc…

China has a really odd perspective on morals and love…

“A recent survey showed that owning a house is the most important thing in finding a partner in Guangzhou: 67 percent of the city’s single women said they would only marry a man who has the capability of buying a house or already has one, the Information Times reported Tuesday.

The survey, conducted by a matchmaking agency in Guangzhou among 15,000 respondents who were not married, found 54 percent of Guangzhou’s single people would demand a house for marriage.

Women have fallen biggest victim to the current soaring housing prices, as they are more concerned about having a house to form a family. But for the male respondents, more than 90 percent said they wouldn’t care if their potential life partner has a house or not, and only 50 percent said they had a house, according to the survey.”
