In my online groups, Beijing has the most Western women married to Chinese men. What makes Beijing the number one city for AMWF couples in China?
I married a Chinese man. So it was inevitable that one day my language learning would extend to that forbidden territory – cursing in Mandarin Chinese.
It felt like a total a palm-in-face moment. After all, hadn’t he read my CV, which explicitly stated I was an American, in bold letters?
It would be tempting to point to this gender imbalance as the primary explanation for why couples of Western women and Asian men are such a minority.
The other day, you told me how people constantly ask you, “Why would you date Chinese men?” You sounded tired of it.
So much is written about the vulnerability of intercultural and international couples, that we’re supposedly more likely to divorce.
The first time I ever made “Italian Eggplant” for my Chinese husband, he hated it. I never expected that one day, he would love making it just for me.
My marriage to a Chinese man has also educated me about the world of racism, prejudice, and all of those unfortunate stereotypes about Asians.

You told your friend about how dissatisfied you were with your boyfriend. You said his salary of “only” 8,000 RMB a month wasn’t good enough.
