  Yeh, make sure he (i'm guessing the foreigner is the man) studies Chinese; a friend of mine got married to a Chinese woman, had a son, then couldn't understand the kid when he asked for milk because the kid prefered to speak Chinese. That's a problem, no?

I haven't, but I have a friend who did. It didn't seem too hard. Just ensure you get your singles certificates and all other legal docs in order.

Yes, married in China almost two years ago from today. I call it the 'beginning of the long March' but in this comparison I am more like a Republican soldier who was caught and forced along. 

        It's hard to believe its been 2 years. It feels like 20 since I married my little Chinese 'Gizmo'' and the ink on the marriage papers is water on their backs turning her into a full-fledged Spike Mogwai.

                 I suppose you must see the movie 'Gremlins' to know what I'm saying. Just that bad. Really. Just a vandalizing, vindictve little monster squealing and destroying for some pointless glee and sick satisfaction. 

 

So here is the lesson. DO NOT marry a mogwai. There is only pain and no benefit to you. Just destruction of your soul.

Do people read the questions?

 

I don't know anyone who married another foreigner, but I have a mate in Beijing who was having a go, but didn't get to far. I think he has a thing for foreigners, I am using that word to refer to people who speak with a different English accent than him and myself, as even back home he went after the same kinds.

"Facepalm"...Please read the question. Not a Westerner married to a Chinese but two people from different countries who got married in China. For example an American and a French.

Not me, anyway! Marriage is still an unknown and undefined entity!

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
