The Chinese system is made in a way that ensures you NEED the parent's consent for this decision... among other decisions, by the way, but getting married is probably the only one that will ever concern you directly.

 

Oh, yes, it's not written in the law, but they just make sure you need the household registration booklet, the Hukou that the parents are supposed to keep, for anything important.

 

Personnaly, I would refuse categorically any kind of ransom in exchange for that piece of paper, under any kind of pretext. Insistance on that point, for me, would say enough about the family so I don't consider marriage anymore.

my deepest condolences for you loss of singleness, the ball and chain and holy deadlock could leave you penniless after working for wife, children, and families till the grim reaper takes you, but think about all those good intentions in your afterlife.

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
