Transnational marriage: not happy

Update:16 Mar 2007
According to a report by Shanghai Morning Post, many young women in Shanghai would like to marry foreigners. However, quite a number of transnational marriages have ended up in divorce. The first ¡°divorce agency¡± in Shanghai said that they had received several such cases from the US.

Many transnational couples got married in a rush, without learning each other's character as well as cultural backgrounds. Some of the young women in Shanghai even got married for money or visas only. No wonder their marriages should end up unhappily.

Last Thursday (March 8), 13 experts on marital problems from Germany came to Shanghai to join their local counterparts to help transnational couples via the Internet, particularly to offer them a space to pour out their anxiety. Most German experts in this field are also lawyers, thus they can also give legal aid to their clients, while Chinese experts know a lot more aoubt traditions and customs of the Chinese.

All the transnational couples with problems can submit an application online to make an appointment with experts. The experts are also available to those who are about to marry foreigners, from whom they can get useful advice on how to manage a happy life after marriage.

It can be estimated that the help of the experts will mean particularly more to the children of the transnational couples.
