Checkout Markets In China Where Parents Advertise Their Children For Marriage

The initial goal of attending the Shanghai marriage market by parents is to look for a suitable partner for the children.


This practice is an old practice from medieval Chinese clans whose culture and traditions made use of matchmakers to select a spouse for their children who are off age and ready to marry.

Marriage in medieval china was an event or ceremony that brought honour to families in medieval china.

Despite it being an old age practice some parents today still make use of this method to find a perfect match for their children.

In these markets, parents advertise their children's bio and credentials like their age, work status, hobbies, family background, with a photo of their child or children by the corner.

Several parents do this without the permission of their children as it is the old tradition of Chinese people to employ the services of a Matchmaker in order to get a good partner for their Sons and Daughters.

The marriage market has existed since 2004 and is attended by parents who are anxious to marry off their young children in their mid-to-late twenties.

These parents come to the market to scout for potential males or females according to their height, age, religion, size, and other characteristics they find interesting in their potential in-laws.

The marriage market was said to have started at People's Square in 2004 and has since spread to other markets in major cities in China like Shenzhen, Wuhan, Shanghai, Hangzhou, and Tianjin in parks which have become unofficial matchmaking venues.
