In a recent article about China, they described an appropriate age for women to marry. In the article, they stated a woman who is unmarried by age 28 is considered undesirable. When a man is seeking a new bride, his hope is that she is less than 25. If she is 30, there will be frowns and questions about her past and how suitable she may be as a wife. In fact, most men would never consider her to be wife material at age 30. For the rest of her life, the best men would overlook her.

In the US, the career woman reins. Many women put off marriage until well in their 30s. They make the claim that their career is more important than having a husband and children.

However, what would happen if men in the US embraced Chinese culture? Would it force women to make different decisions about dating? Would it force women to choose a suitable mate before age 25? Would that affect their careers?
