So, you have to be grateful to your wife and stop cursing behind her back.

Be a nice husband.

Be a nice human.

No offense northwest - but after your tirade with my wife, you got little room to start talking about seneca's wife.

As it stands - the ladies of China have spoken, with their passports.

Only the "ladies of China"?  

I think it is the ladies of the WORLD .... Tradervic, (not that I am boasting this to U) but men, you see, are just NOTHING ..... NOTHING.


441424, we may see the beginning of family break-ups in China but you should see if there is anymore complete "family" in the West.  It all started with tradervic and seneca's grandma and mother-generation when the gweipos got their freedom from the enslavement of their men.  

What is family (in the West)?  2 fathers, 3 mothers, 4 step-siblings and 5-bastards (illegitimate-born)?  Actresses/singers Madonna and Angelina Jolie, etc have a colourful brood at home .... can this be family? What can the their "poor" gweilo husbands do?

.... I just wonder if these gweipos will allow their "colourful siblings" to marry each other one day?  Would that be incest?  And, so what is the definition of family and where is the boundary of incest?  

They're family, aren't they?  NO?  

"refugee camps"?

Hehehe .... just waiting to see how much more 乱七八糟 (messy, messup) the West is going to be.

By 2020, INCEST is legal .... in the USA.  TV and seneca, you 2 sods, Congrats! ....

Trader,

Please understand that North is very afraid that no high quality Chinese woman would ever marry him since no high quality woman from anywhere would ever even date such a monster anyhow.

The reason for the high divorce rate is that (1) too many Chinese marriages are traditional marriages meant to gain property or standing for the family and (2) liberalization of divorce laws. Since a great many marriages in China are not predicated on the ability of the couple to live together fruitfully, we should expect laxer divorce laws will make more couples choose a more personally rewarding path and try to find someone they want in their lives rather than the old path of finding someone's things their father wants in the family.

it's definitely a good thing

lower divorce rate does not mean higher marriage quality, but because in old days people thought divorce was such a disgraceful thing so they'd rather get by. now they can face this and give themselves another chance to start over

as for children, i noticed that nowadays children are very open on this. before they felt ashamed telling people that their parents were divorced; whereas now your hear them saying "my parents have divorced and now i don't have to watch them fighting"...

usually a child from a divorced family is more mature than a spoilt one from a "happy family". although there are many "problem  children" from divorced families but there are also many from '"normal families". "problem children" have problems because of many reasons

some say that "women are more picky" is the reason of higher divorce rate, that sounds very personal
