In China, it is not legal to hire domestic workers from other countries.

I'm sure you COULD, legalities aside, but why in the name of all that is holy would you WANT to? I mean, the from the part where it is not legal (as the above posters mentioned), which would require you to provide your own visa, which is about to become substantially more difficult isn't even the tip of the iceberg.                                                                                                      The kind of family that would pay a Westerner a salary they could be comfortable with as an ayi (that's a nanny/maid/handyman...that is what Chinese expect in a 'nanny') when they could damn well get a substantially cheaper Chinese 'nanny' produces one specific brand of child. Imperious, intractable brats who have spent their short lives being told that they are the golden objects the universe revolves around, specifically. And you had better believe you will be expected to treat the little shit like the very ground his fat ass walks on (these types are always fat little boys), is sacred--even if he hits you, spits on you, or anything  else.                                                                                                            Get a job as an au pair for a rich Westerner. It's legal, and there are just standards for the children's behavior.

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
