Every parent wants their daughter to marry a promising and successful man. But how many of them realize their dreams? The promising and successful men are limited. By the way, how do you know they want your daughter to be their wives?

GUEST12206 When I was in China I attended a Chinese wedding, it was very interesting. Every guest at the wedding gave lots and lots of money to the couple (around $3000 form each guest), and the amounts were announced on the microphone for everyone present to know how much was given. The food served was lavish and consisted of at least 20 different dishes. One thing I was shocked to learn was when the husband said that he married his wife for money. The wife is an AT worker and husband is a soft drink truck driver.

I want to know is this a common practice! at Chinese weddings? I feel that the Chinese people have become very materialistic???? Where is true love, and respect?

GUEST44065 Do the Chinese guest give money gifts at the wedding? As I remember we almost recoupped all wedding costs at our wedding over their, but I'm not sure if the money came most from other Asians, particularly Japanese/Korean.

Yes. The bride and groom's friends and relatives will give red envelopes to them. The red envelopes usually contain a certain amount of money. The amount varies from person to person and place to place.

GUEST12206,

It is a common practice to give money to the bride and groom at the wedding ceremony. But the money is usually wrapped in red envelopes. And it is seldom to announce the amounts at the wedding ceremony.

The husband said that he married the woman for money. Did you notice how the wife reacted when she heard about her husband’s words? Or was the man drunk?

Well, I won't take any money from my future husband as long as he can prove that he is a virgin.

The bride price has nothing to do with virgin. It's a custom has been followed thousands of years.

GUEST64124 These days, it is nothing to do with tradition at all. Just the worship of money. Those Chinese who hide behind 'tradition' are self deluded.

As a Chinese man, I think bride price is too high. I agree with you that some girls and their parents are money-oriented.
