Marriage Statistic from BBC [Copy link] 中文

It said that in the USA now, 1/3 of all marriages started from online dating, and that these marriages are less likely to end in divorce than those which started in the traditional way.

Can someone find a similar stat. from China? I'm curious how our two countries compare.

Any other respectful comments?

For certain that the rate of divorce in China is incredibly HIGH!!!!! I heard from a few of my colleagues its about 35%!!! But kind of have no idea on whether the couples getting divorced are the ones that met through the internet/ weixin or if they were the ones who started the normal way!!!

Being an American, I can say that a divorce is not going out of fashion. Stats will show less are being married, and more are living together.
After getting married to a Chinese girl, I was told Divorce is out of the question.

What would scare you more? Knowing your chances for a divorce is good with an American wife. or knowing your in it for life with a Chinese wife?

I prefer the Chinese!

The divorce rate in Chinese marriages is going north rapidly.  Dont know about cross-cultural marriages with Westerners but it would be interesting to find out.

Shouldn't be yo difficult to look up. My wife and I are happy enough after 3 years. It's the dreaded 10th year statistic that worries people.
