Marriage and traditions
How does this apply?
How is american marriage compared to Chinese marriage?
The Chinese view marriage as the end of romantic life and the beginning of an ordinary life.
compared to america where marriage is just a new part to the romantic life.
While americans are more of what they themselves want in someone. In Chinese culture marriage is often decided on what the whole family wants not what the people in the marriage want.
In china when people get married the husbands family will pay because when the wife is married she is seen as no longer a part of her family but now a part of the husbands family.
In america it is normally seen as the couples job to pay for the wedding.
