-Well first you are black. So it's hard to get a job since Chinese people think English Speakers are white. Didn't say it's true, but that's the economic reality

-Second you don't have the two years of experience teaching English to get a good job in Beijing or Shanghai, or Guangzhou, so that works against you

-You could get a job, but it might not be legal, or pay all that well.

-It's China, so anything is POSSIBLE.

Your English is terrible, you aren't a teacher, and you have no teaching experience. Do you expect to be treated well in China under those conditions?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
