Some young men can't even get one here, they hate it. So ask the old ones to leave the chance to those youngsters.....

I believe the main problem isn't race, it is about wealth/money. I don't doubt these girls would go out with Chinese men who are in their 40s-50s if they are rich. I think these girls assume Americans/Whites to be wealthy or atleast above their financial status.
In college alone and I am loving it. ^^

I don't know if I like you or love you, want you or need you, all I know is I love the feeling I get when I'm near you.

I went fishing in China and I caught a beauty!

By saying, "older foreign men marry young chinese girls" is making an assumption. Without the statistics to prove it, we are making an assumption and assumptions are usually wrong if no facts are available to back them up.

This is my opinion and I am a 55 year old foreign man married to a 33 year old chinese women. First of all, if a smart man is going to go fishing, he is going to go fishing where most of the best fish are. The population of China is 1.3 billion and the population of North America is 515 million. This is a "no brainer". Go figure. Where would you go fishing?

Getting married is easy enough to do but if the age difference is to great, I think this couple would have difficulty immigrating to either country.

If I had married a 20 year old Chinese woman, I think my government would certainly view this as a "marriage of convenience" for the women and no immigration visa would be offered to her. What's the point of the marriage if the couple cannot be together?

Also, consider this: if the younger Chinese womn is divorced with a child, she is not desirable as a wife to many Chinese men.

Based on my own personal expereince, the qualities of a "good" Chinese woman far exceed North American woman. Even if the marriage does not work out and yes, I will die before my wife, this will still be a "win win" for her. She has nothing to lose. What would you do?
I went fishing in China and I caught a beauty! We love each other equally.
