The era of "gold miss" (剩女) has come to China, totally converting the long-held traditional idea that women must marry at a certain age.
The gold miss don't care a nut about their age. A female fund manager in her forties think that marriage should be based on love, mutual understanding and congeniality, free from the restraints in age and traditional view.
The main reason for the popularity of gold miss is that women's social and economic status have improved a lot during these year. Miss Li, a master degree holder, is an employee in a state-owned enterprise with the annual salary of 200,000 yuan. As a hot professional woman, she thinks that it is better to be a gold miss before finding an ideal life partner.

Several years ago, a woman was considered as an old maid or spinster and looked down upon if she didn't marry at 26. Now things are different in China. A woman from the media industry said that the successful women with open, free and independent values will design their lives according to their will. 

What do you think of it? The social progress or retrogression?

你想得美!

China will be China for many more years to come. Maybe after 20 years people's way of thinking will start to change. For now, someone single, over 26, and not in a serious relationship is still a spinster.
Beijing and Shanghai maybe a bit different, but dont forget that the bulk of the Chinese people still live in rural areas

hmm good point. I think it is normal for succesful carreer woman to marry late or later.
cause with such salary, many guys will just go after her if knowing that she earns this much.

it will be then harder to look for a true-hearted and good man she likes.

There is no real progress or retrogression.
Same with baby-boom flood back in the past. The more weldom people get, actually the later they will marry often.
Because of many choices and a good life already.   But there will come a time where suddenly its flooding of early-marriages again. Comes back and back again like a vicous circle....

Support the opinion from Gangsta

Yes many of the chinese woman are still living in the rural, and they are all traditional, also most of them are married at an early age. if they are just over 20 old and then lots of the matchmakers will come to their home to quier if they have the willing to be married. It is too disgusting!!!

I think the majority of young women in China are still under the pressure of  marry some one before the age of 27, because their parents, their point of views toward marrage is a bit different from our new generation. Some of them still think that it's a kind of shame if their child haven't marry at an age of 27, their neighbours will also spread a kinda rumor.
Some of my friends say their gole in the coming three years is to marry someone. They also think that if a girl marry a wealthy man ,then she can shorter her own years of earning her own shares by working very hard. Nowadays, more and more people are tend to be more realistic.

succesful carreer woman to marry late or later is ok, but it's hard to find a  a true-hearted and good man .
we know that most of the men don't like the older women, if a man love you, maybe for money and others.
The era of "gold miss"  has come to China for some reasons, and it almost happens in big cities.
