Why most Chinese does not understand an individual's relationship status is personal privacy and it is considered rude to keep asking about it?

They say it is called polite to ask, how ridiculous they are!

If you are annoyed and tell them to stop. They will just attack you.

While on the book and media, they keep saying

Different cultures have different views on privacy -- different rules on a lot of things, actually. When in Rome...

yeah, lack of privacy here is sooooo odd compared to the US....  personally I am private by nature and prefer the US (Western-world) model.

I never really had a problem with people asking irritating questions because that's just the culture but when I choose not to answer, or give an evasive answer obviously avoiding the question and people still persist... that's when I look for a way out of the conversation and plan on avoiding them whenever possible after 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
