It would be a lot easier yes, indeed. You could apply for a resident permit which would allow you to stay for a year. I heard they were making some policy changes where later you can stay up to 4 or5 years without leaving, not sure the truth around that though.

No, not easy. You will be divorced by the time you get to be permanent. Sounds like you haven't actually met, winner or troll ?

You can enter the country with a tourist visa ("L"), and once married go to PSB and apply for a residence permit with your wedding certificate, your husband's houku booklet (must be at the city where he is registered), and depending on city, you will get the first one anywhere from 6 months to one year stay.  What does happens in reality is that your tourist visa is cancelled, and the residence permit does work as a visa.  If multiple entries are granted on permit, you can exit and reenter China.

Maybe a week before the residence permit expires, you must go back to PSB and apply for a new one. From the second to the fifth one, you may get one for one year validity. After 5 years, if still married, you may get one for two years, but that is about it.
As long as you are married, it will get renewed. And if you must get a divorce, the permit will be valid until date of expiration, but will not be renewed, so you must leave China since once expired, you will have no visa and become an illegal immigrant subject to deportation.
On a personal level now, do not rush into marriage, please. There is a world of different cultural ideas and customs, make sure first you get to know your boyfriend real well, their customs and where they do place women in their society.
Good luck to you.

the short answer is no. You can apply for a permanent visa, but it's unlikely you'll get one unless you are a person of some standing. However, there are other "unofficial" visa benefits to being married to a Chinese. i.e. You have the option to go onto a family visa if necessary and it kinda gives you more unofficial leverage if you have any visa issues down the line.

Marrying a chinese national does not give you the right to live in China. It gives you the ability. China is not an immigrant nation.

Wait, in what situation is it difficult for any person to get a visa for Brazil, it is a tourist destination not a Chinese seeking immigration destination. Not being mean, just asking, have you met this guy?

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
