Not sure if any of you saw the latest 'news' on the Chinese internet but apparently there is some type of 'my daughter's marriage will be more expensive than yours' brinkmanship going on in JinJiang - apparently a local 'Tile Manufacturing Boss' bestowed 20Million USD on his daughter for her wedding including 3-4 townhouses, some commercial properties, a Porsche and a BMW, shares in the company, a few buckets of gold, a diamond and gold wedding dress and a few other small trinkets...

Anyone on CLM meeting that description and is interested in marriage?

not really related, but it is about money expectations. I've noticed a fair number of girls are asking for a man to have an income of 200,000+.. I'd like to know if they are serious as I think that is unrealistic .. Any girls like to speak up?

这是中国文化婚礼的一部分,另外加入了炫耀财富的成分,所以让大家吃惊,请仔细看中国人的反映,应该是嫉妒和羡慕比较多,反对的少。(另外对财富是否正当的质疑)
中国人的女儿,是出嫁的,儿子是继承家族事业的。所以在女儿出嫁时,会有嫁妆,至于多少,是根据家庭的财富的多少决定的,这些嫁妆是父母的给予,只在第一次婚姻时。在1949 年前是有十里红妆送女儿出嫁的壮观景象。即使现在,在平常人家,在女儿结婚时,买辆汽车做嫁妆的也有很多。
你看到的这一家,应该是有儿子的,也就是说这家出嫁的女儿,将不参于家族事业的管理。家族的事业留给了儿子,所以给女儿很多嫁妆,也是一种补偿吧。
不用担心,不是每个中国女人,都要这样,这里很多女人都是40左右的,不是富二代,即使富裕也多是自己创业得来,因为历史原因,那时中国没有富二代,没有贵族(红色贵族除外)。她们更懂得珍惜生活,懂得付出。所以不要因此认为,所有的中国女人都这样,这只是很少的一部分人,真的很少以至于成为新闻。

haha... Wow a rich father....I am curious what the men think. Are they jealous of that bridegroom? Do they think why they were not that lucky bridegroom? Do they want to find a rich father in law too? haha...
If I had a rich father, I wouldn't feel shame on his vast fortune, but I would feel shame on his 'generous' for such a wedding.
Anyway, wedding is an important invent of life, as long as they are happy, they have right to make their wedding as gorgeous as what they like. Best wish to them.

Hi Gateth

I think it is just a upstart's showoff with uncompleted personality, nothing worthy to illustrate, but why are you interested in it?

My interest, only is that it might be a reverse gold-digger situation!

The net worth of the marriage ceremony was said to be 1 billion RMB.

Personally, I think this 'show' of such blatant wealth is a little disgusting, but each to their own! I hope that the bride and groom can have a happy and loving relationship for their entire lives.

OH my... G Hump was joking..a little.. I am sure he meant looking for a rich wedding gift was meant as humour...It seems, that many Chinese of great wealth feel compelled to show it of.. Just as people everywhere else on earth.. It is nothing new...The Railroad barons that once gave diamonds and rubies to dinner guests have been replaced by Oil sheiks, Coal billionaires and tile magnates... Just as ladies can dream, so can guys...But I don't doubt that if some attractive woman's family suddenly appeared with a few cars and town houses and a bucket or two of gold, that Gareth would object to strongly. He was just saying being a sudden milionaire was a job he might not mind. Wanted to apply for..Anyone that says he would not think about twenty mill,is probably a liar, a saint or already has a few Billion...

Sometimes in this situation, the gifts are more for show and the couple will return them to the family.

是的,这种行为是过分的炫耀了。我仅解释下嫁妆而已。
我把经商的人分为三类;一种是红色贵族的商人
一种是儒商
一种是暴发户
前一种我了解不多,
第二种儒商;一般都会有很好的传承,不会做出这样的事,那就是腹有诗书气自华,有风度,有修养,含蓄和内敛,知道审时度事,顺应民心。
第三种是暴发户,又可以分为三种;
1 只可以在几十年内,拥有财富,没文化,没有远见,只知道炫耀,这一种不能造福后代
甚至到最后怎么死的都不知道,没有好的结局。
2 在一定的时间内积聚了财富,同样本人没文化,炫耀但是不太过分,但是不能很好的管
理子女,结局也不太好,比如很多的开车撞人时间的主角,不知收敛迟早要招来祸事。
3 第三种 这一种 也是本人文化水平低,但是知道附庸风雅,知道装做很有文化的样子
因此不会做这种过分炫耀的事,并且注重子女教育,这一种才会有好的结局,并且摆脱爆发户的帽子。怎样知道他们是爆发户呢,很简单,如果他请你去家里做客,在你欣赏他的家居时他向你介绍的是,每种东西是花了多少钱买来的,基本上就可以肯定了。
看了我的评论是不是理解了,我们不用嫉妒,用不了多久,这家如果没有强硬的后台,就快了结了,毕竟这种行为在国内,等于自杀。

忘了说一句,爆发户=没有文化。既然没文化就有思想的局限性,看问题就不够全面,做事也就如此张扬,因此我们没有必要感到恶心,你说你和一没文化的计较啥呢?

In a chinese family, the girl get married, parents always prepare some dowry for her. it is one of traditional chinese cultures, with chinese characteristics. how much the dowry is , depend on the parents' ability. in the parents view, it seem that is also a way to love their child. as we all know, marriage is built on the basis of feelings.
It is said that the happiness groom is just an ordinary civil servants. Best wishs to them.

各位说的对啊,没有感情是很糟糕的,就象生活在金屋中的陈阿娇,尚且要司马相如来写《长门赋》,可见即使住在金屋中,也抵挡不住那份寒冷。
