Nope, you might have heard wrong.  In China, legal age to be married for women is 20 years of age, not a day younger.  But men must be at least 22 years of age.

It is a well known fact that corrupted officials are very abundant in China, and I agree that it is easier and cheaper to get what you want done in the countryside than in the city. Bribes and guangxi is still very popular in small villages in China, but is it worth it?.  Especially if you live in China ?.  What would happen if you are caught ?  

And since you, as a foreigner, can only ne married at the Marriage Bureau of the city, town or village where your future wife's huckou book is registered, what if is not at countryside?.

I had a friend who registered a gas motorcycle (real big engine) with a 3,000 Rmb bribe to a village chief, and got a real driver's license too besides the plates.  But it lasted until the Police in Nanning caught him up and confiscated his motorcycle.

A:I have mixed feelings about that term, because obviously it's used by shitty people to paint us all, but the concept isn't manufactured out of whole cloth either. I dont worry about what xenophobic local losers think, but between other expats I apply that term to people with shitty attitudes and grand delusions. It does NOT apply to somebody who actually makes it here. It's NOT the dude who had a shitty or no job and no luck with women in the west who comes here, does OK with teaching or whatever works his ass off gets married starts a family etc and carries himself like a respectable person. Even though he might have been considered a 'loser' before, i wouldnt call him an LBH cause he used China's opportunity to get his shit together. That guy is no longer a loser by any definition so whats it matter what he was before? The key word of LBH is 'loser'...meaning they continue to be a loser. The LBH is the guy or girl who can't hold down a decent job or functional relationships here either...but who enjoys and relishes in the sort of elevated foreigner status and the attention they can get without any effort. The person with the terrible attitude who manages to keep squeaking by because there is always a ESL school desperate enough to hire them. And yet they maintain a grandiose superior attitude. I guess it's the difference between an opportunity loser and a personality loser. The first guy was probably itching to go his whole life just had nothing interesting come along and maybe not tons of ambition. But he moved to China and became who he always was...a solid hardworking dude. But the personality loser is a "wherever you go there you are" kind of loser. There isn't a situation in the world they could thrive in because the problem is they can't get on with people. But in china they get a certain narcissistic validation from all the attention. -- expatlife26
