Single Woman's dilemma: Chinese new year!
Mon, 02-03-2014 - 11:17am

  It is the year of the Horse in East Asia.  This is a 15 day celebration where returning home is traditional.  For single women it is a trying time.   The tradition is for single women to bring their boyfriends to meet the parents.   In China a law enacted in 2013 require children to visit their parents!  Bring home the prospective husband is considered a necessity. 

   Many women are involved in their careers and really don't have time for this tradition.   So they hire a "boyfriend".   And you thought there was pressure to get a mate!
