What, people born in the 80's are already getting married.  And yet I can't find a wife or a girlfriend for that matter

Interesting article, Vic.  China could have a similar demographics given that unless you are born right at the beginning years of the 80's it's difficult to have complete a post graduate degree and people tend not to get married while studying, and the wealth thing.

I wonder what are the other factors - increase in migrant workers that people have to live apart - increase in female work opportunities and income - changing of traditional values.....

Your guess is as good as mine.  Is there a Chinese version of the U.S. Census Bureau?  If nothing else - there would be a good amount of data to analyze for this subject.
