A woman from Liaoning recently became well-known on social media when she claimed she preferred to be single and refused “low-quality marriage.” Her shares about her views on marriage have gone viral.
She says she prefers living independently and happily and doesn’t believe marriage is the key to a guaranteed-happy life.
“Married or not, everyone will have regrets. The most important thing is to have fun in life.”
In the videos, she shows off how she lives free and comfortably. She wears pajamas indoors, cooks her favorite foods, and prepares her makeup for outdoor gatherings.
The single girl’s story has attracted more than 270,000 views and more than 27,000 comments.
Many people were in support,
“I agree with her. As long as we live the way we like, everything will be fine,” “I don’t judge her choices; I support her living for herself.”
There are many contrasting opinions saying that if she gets married, she will have better support in life.
“What will she do when she gets old? No one will keep her company.”
“She is selfish. If everyone is like that, where will the next generation go?”
However, increasing economic and social pressures are causing many young Chinese people to lose interest in marriage. High housing prices, unemployment, and the impossibly high cost of raising children make them give up the idea of starting a family.
The country’s marriage rate fell by 40% between 2013 and 2020. Despite Beijing’s efforts to encourage young people to get married, they have shunned marriage and trumpeted the trend of being single.
