But I heard the Chinese government doesn't recognize the concept of homosexuality. So legally spea ...

Homosexuality is well recognized by the Chinese government and is not considered a mental disease anymore (since 2001 if memory serves).

However, homosexuality is still frowned upon by society. But things are evolving.

Also, there is a strong responsibility of Chinese men in their being single. A lot of them want to marry a perfect 10 or maybe a 9. But they look like 5 or 6. Therefore they wait wait wait and some pretty girls (8 out of 10 is pretty !) can't find a suitable husband and then they get too old.
The above mentioned men get older, richer, and can find a young wife who, of course, loves them for their sparkling personality and not the millions on their bank account...

Interesting.
Would you be willing to share with me the source of your knowledge about the legal status of homosexuality in China? Like which particular article recognizes it? It'd be fun to see how they put it exactly

I find the whole dating game in China is the biggest obstacle. My wife tells me how her friends found or are looking for a husband. Unlike in the west where people simply meet at work or in bars etc., and then go on dates, the Chinese system seems to be that men and women don’t actually talk to each other. They have to be “introduced” first either by friends or relatives. This is of course after a suitable candidate is found having passed the “tests”. Is she academically higher qualified than him? Does she pass the “innocence” test? Can he afford the “bride price” and the apartment? Are the two families of similar status? Is it surprising that there are so many singles?

From Wikipedia :
In 1997, the Chinese criminal code was revised to eliminate the vague crime of "hooliganism", which had been used as a de facto ban on private, adult, non-commercial and consensual homosexual conduct.

On April 20, 2001, the Chinese Classification of Mental Disorders formally removed homosexuality from its list of mental illnesses.

Most gay men in China get married anyway.

Yup, and that is pretty devastating to women. There is actually a new law stating that if your husband is gay you can get an annulment on the marriage.

Nowadays, a lot of gay men get married to lesbian women and the couple pretend they have fertility problems...
