Even in western romantic relationships, couples make similar tacit evaluations of what each person ...

Sorry but in all my past relationships and experience in the west, I've never heard or come across any western woman demand house and take of finances. Generally western woman are more independent. These are simple facts about differences of cultures which do exist, just like men holding women's hand bags, people fighting to pay for the meals, in the west normally the bill is split. Chinese people will tell you the same!

Funny, because I have never had a Chinese women any more interested in money than anyone else, maybe ...

Well said, zglobal.
To OP: Some Chinese women do that mainly for their children and security since our medical insurance .etc is not that good. It’s Chinese custom for women to take over finance. But they would neither waste a penny nor regard the money as their own. It's family fund.  For the vast majority, they work and share the apartment mortgage, kids’ education expense,housework with their husbands.

To be honest I'm not exaggerating anything, even the Chinese government recognise this and encourage woman to be more independent. I can forward you some articles. As for me, it not worth to psycho analyse me as I created this post as a form a discussion. Living in China for many years and married to a Chinese woman myself I'm not stranger to Chinese culture so I can look at it objectively and talk about both the good and the bad. Yes there are positive Chinese woman out there like my wife we both agree on the points I've made previously. Regarding the left over woman in China I'm also no stranger to this having many Chinese friends in their 30's just waiting to get married but they always complain no one wants them. Maybe you have some friends I can introduce them to?
