I have to go with Single an poor as I prefer no backdoor action. 

 

But had you asked "Which would you prefer: to be married to a Chinese woman, or be single and poor?", then I'd probably go with married. And being a civil servant isn't that bad in China (in some cases you can even live decently without hongbao)

What on earth is this question about?! Why would marrying a Chinese man be a bad decision just because of the nationality?

Depends- would he give me a reach-around?

 

But really if you are getting married to improve your financial situation it's time to take a long hard look in the mirror...

Think, maybe...what he's trying to say that being married to a Chinese guy is not necessarily a good thing??

 

That may explain why you see so many Chinese women with foreign men ( & often NOT to get money or a green card) & rarely see a foreign woman with a Chinese guy.

 

Why is that??

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
