|I was married in China. I am an American and my wife is chinese. I was told I was expected to give her mother money (father is dead). I was worried I would not give enough. I think I gave her mother a couple hundred dollars. I don't remember how many yuan but they were all hundreds. I don't think it made a difference about the amount as her mother is very old and has poor memory. I think it was mostly ceremony. I was the only one who did not speak Chinese and everyone did not speak Engish. My wife never asks for money. She has accepted money twice but mostly says she does not need it. All of us who marry Chinese women wonder if their intentions are good. So far I know about 4 successful marriages including mine. I am still waiting to get my wife to America. I was only with my wife for one week but I am very happy so far. I am 60, she is 46.|

At Chinese wedding ceremony, the bride will receive a big red envelope from her father in law and some gold ornaments from the mother in law while the groom usually receive two red envelopes from his parents-in-law. In my hometown, the red envelope usually contains 1001 yuan, meaning "the bride is picked up among 1001 girls".
Your wife is really a good girl and your mother-in-law is nice too. Some young Chinese girls' moms do require a large amount of money as bride price.
