Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

A new sur­vey by match­mak­ing web­site Zhenai.com re­vealed that over half of all sin­gle Chi­nese peo­ple born after the 1990s agree with pre­mar­i­tal co­hab­i­ta­tion. It also found that most sin­gle Chi­nese women ex­pect their fu­ture part­ner’s monthly salary to ex­ceed 8,000 yuan ($1205.21), ris­ing 3,000 yuan from last year, Shang­hai Morn­ing Post re­ported Wed­nes­day.

The sur­vey found that most women born after 1990s ex­pect to have their own apart­ment as a pre­con­di­tion for mar­riage.

Other find­ings from the re­port: 80 per­cent of men and women sur­veyed are not in fa­vor of “go­ing Dutch” on dates, 69 per­cent of men and women feel that men should pay for most dates and 12 per­cent be­lieve all dates should be paid en­tirely by men.

In terms of pre­mar­i­tal co­hab­i­ta­tion, more than half of the sur­veyed men and women born after 1990s ac­cept it. Over 80 per­cent of men see pre­mar­i­tal co­hab­i­ta­tion as a sort of trial mar­riage, but only 43 per­cent women see it as that.
