Marriage Market

For anyone who has ever felt pressure from their families for not being married or having a significant other, be glad you don't live in China. Every Saturday and Sunday, parents of unwed children head to People's Square in hopes of finding their child the perfect mate. Hundreds of papers are clipped to the walls, advertising the age, height, education, job, and salary of these eligible bachelors and bachelorettes, also making sure to note whether they own their own apartment or not.

 

 
 
 



 Apparently Match.com hasn't caught on yet in Shanghai.
