    Hi Jocelyn,

    I read several of your articles about Chinese men dating and marrying non-Chinese women, and I am one of them. I am Chinese and I married a beautiful Brazilian women. We are living happily ever after. Do you want to hear my story?

    Hi Fred,

    Why not?
    Just share us your romances.
    Before that, we should thank Jocelyn for the platform.

    Absolutely love the site, as a girl soon to be taking the across the world plunge it’s nice to know I’m not alone. Just wondering if anyone on here as particular economic issues within their yangxifu relationships. My fiancée is a chuzhong biye le nongminren and I’m at an English university and possibly going to do a masters before moving over there to be with him, while this means eternal praise and love from him and all his family members it also means really frustrating and sometimes even hurtful comments by strangers friends and even distant family ( if you’ve ever seen the film aiqingguojingxian you’ll know the feel.) Face is so important to Chinese people but my education and western background means I will easily earn much more than my Laogong with more pressure to stay on at work than stay at home and look after the kids ( A whole other bag of problems when facing questions about bringing kids up bi-lingual, but I digress). Just wondering if there is anyone going through or been through the same thing and come out fighting.
    Also definitely up for a big YangXiFer (BJhua) get together, looking for intern-ships in Shanghai nabian this summer and having an engagement party in Jiangsu. Thanks for all the inspiring articles and comments. Best Regards, Marie
