Description

“Although China is getting more tolerant of different ways of living, this is still a collectivistic society – valuing family cohesion and conformity. This means dating, wedding planning and marriage counselling businesses will not become sunset industries. In fact, young couples are more likely to share wedding-related tasks with each other (and not with their parents).”
– Alina Ma, Associate Director
