It’s a fact. Wherever you look, more and more wealthy foreigners are marrying Chinese women, especially in places with a dense Chinese population, such as in the United States. In cities like Los Angeles and New York, it is common to see Chinese women shopping in expensive stores with their mixed children. So what is it that makes these guys ignore all the skinny busty blondes and chase down Chinese girls?
There are probably several answers to this question, but one that seems to come up over and over again is the fact that Chinese women tend to care for their families more. In these uncertain days, when each year seems to bring about a new financial crisis, more and more Western women are investing time in their careers, while putting their families aside. Western men, on the other hand, have been watching helplessly while their women are slowly assuming their role as the family’s only financial support. The truth still remains: men like to have a wife to care for them, to care for their children and to keep things at home. Knowing that they have a wife who depends on them gives them a sense of dominance, which only makes them feel a little more like a man.
The last decade has brought the rise of women to power. Never before have so many women attended universities and held important government and corporate positions. Western women love to brag about being financially independent, because for them it’s almost like getting out of years of seclusion and finally being able to see the sunlight. It’s like showing off the prize for winning a long and arduous battle. What women haven’t really told you all these years is that you can change the way society thinks, but you can’t change the laws of nature.
It is a fact that women love to feel safe. When looking for a partner, most women even put financial security ahead of many other aspects and this is something they do even unconsciously. Even those women who have a prosperous career and are completely financially secure, will not allow themselves to marry or even fall in love with a man who earns less than them or who has an inferior education. Not to mention the old saying that women love guys with expensive cars and pockets full of money. It is not the expensive steel car-shaped structure they love so much. This is not a greenish rectangular piece of paper with printed dollar signs. For women, it all comes down to the feeling of security and confidence that these objects are able to bring them.
In this scenario, in which the figure of the male provider is running out, the Chinese come to fill a gap. Most adult Chinese women today were raised by very traditional parents, who taught them the importance of being a good wife and taking care of her husband. Being a good wife is an important part of Chinese culture and most Chinese women are willing to make great sacrifices for their families and their marriage. The tradition will strongly influence even Chinese women who have higher education and are very capable of leading a financially secure life. For wealthy Western men, who already have everything but a loving wife, it’s the perfect match.
Another reason why more and more rich guys are showing off their Chinese wives is the simple fact that Asian women have a “quiet” beauty, which does not require them to spend hours at the gym or doing thousands of facials. They also seem to age much less than white women, which gives an older man the feeling of being with a much younger girl without having to deal with all the issues related to age difference. In short, Chinese women are becoming popular because they are easier to please and are not ashamed of being (or feeling) dependent on their husbands or boyfriends.
