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:My sister still sends me letters from Scotland. Get about 2 a year. I don't write back. She has Facebook but no email. And she refuses to use wechat for some reason. She complains I don't post enough photos of the kid on Facebook. I tell her FB is banned, get wechat then she can see new photos multiple times a day. She won't do it. And she can comment instantly or chat.

In fact, last time I posted photos on FB I got an angry message from her demanding to know why I was in the UK and did not go to see her. Even though the photos were of China.

I sent a message back explaining how VPNs work, and that I was not on the UK at all.

To be honest, using the post is a pain in the arse. Using Facebook is a close second. While Wechat is easy, no matter where you are on the world.

My sister could have instant access via wechat. But she refuses to use it. She just has no concept of what it is like in China to access Facebook or use the Chinese post office.

Snail mail is fine if you live in a country with post boxes on street corners. But posting the "Chinese way" is just too much trouble. -- ScotsAlan
