Q: Is it true that there is no "age of majority" in China?

By age of majority I mean drinking age.  I heard there is no legal age required.  If so, what is wrong with our society back home?  I don't see the same problems with drinking here that I do back home, or at least not as much of it.  Is it because we make such a big deal about when you "get to" drink?

Oh yes there is an age of majority in China. It's 18 years of age for either gender. For your interest, the age of consent is 14 years. And the age for consent for marriage is 22 years for males and 20 years for females. So there, go forth and have fun!

No, it's because Chinese teens are always at school or at special lessons, and they are not allowed to wander outside by themselves.

Have you tried Baijiu? Why would anyone want to drink it until you really really have to. 5000 years and all they can make is poison, or worse wine with snakes etc. And I thought the worm in Tequila was bad. Or with Tiger blood etc. I wonder if I could get a job pissing in their brewing vats? Women can testify that yes it is whoopie with a wild animal.... Bayer Claw wine will bring out the beast in you.

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
