"Children" in China are forced to marry before they have matured and grown up. They are forced by custom, parents and grand-parents, friends and social attitudes. They fear gossip and ridicule if they are "left-overs". This was the situation in England 150 years ago. There are happy marriages resulting, but also many very unhappy ones. A couple should have some happy lives together once married, and before children are planned. Just marrying to have a family is a recipe for disaster. Luckily I detect a growing number of Chinese women who want a life and a career, and a family later regardless of criticism.

'Chinese couples still favor marriage at 26'

That explains why they have the world's highest divorce rate!  They jump into matrimony at the drop of a hat, not realizing that marriage comes with huge responsibility for which many are not prepared. They jump in just because they fall in love; love alone is not a good enough reason for marriage!
Many are forced into marriage at the very young age of 26 by their mamas who can't wait to raise grandchildren.  Mama 'yao bao sunzi' is often given as the reason they rush into marriage.
