Cost for marriage
This morning, when I finally conclude that I will settle down in Shunde and will buy a house at that city, I searched from internet and found out some prices for the housing. I calculated the cost for buying a house, for decoration, for buying furniture, and for the saving of having a baby, I am not alone, I calculate with my friend, the one who had got married and have a baby, bought a house of her own.
At first start with the house, I am not planning to buy a big house; I think two bedrooms are ok for me. But the pricings are not cheap, it is around RMB4000, two bedrooms house is average 80M2, then in total is 320000, 30% payment is 96000, plus decoration and furniture, at least 40000, so in total 136000.
It is only for the house, let’s turn to the cost for having a baby, my friend said:” you should at least have 20000 in saving before you decide to have one, or else you better not to even think about that.”
Plus that 20000, total 156000, I look at that number again and again, and finally return my mind back, from where I can get that money to my pocket, not even think about that.
Then I thought:” I am not a failure person, I have a job, I don’t say that it is a good job but at least my pay is above the average income level, I have done pretty well and don’t spend my money casually, but I can’t have that money to prepare for my future, or to be exactly, for my marriage.
When I think about marriage, I know the true meaning is that I need to have a baby, so I need to marriage, as I need baby, I will have to prepare for it before the year of 29 and now I am 27. That means I have not time for wasting, as I am in urgent situation, I need to have enough money only for my marriage, but from where I can have that money, it seems like I don’t have the right for marriage.
Again we calculated the cost for caring a baby, plus milk, food, clothes and other necessary, she told me at least RMB3000 Per month, as have to pay for the installment, like to say 20 years for the rest money of installment, that is 1376.36 monthly, total is RMB4376.36, well, that is too much.
