Chinese Mail Order Brides: Who Are They And How Much Do They Cost?
Chinese brides are known for being shy, intelligent, and very beautiful. Modern girls from this country are also well-educated and quite open-minded, but they are also a bit traditional — some Americans think they are perfect wife material. Here, we’ll tell you everything you want to know about them!
Chinese women for marriage and American men
Here’s the first thing you should know if you’re going to find Chinese mail order brides: these women are really interested in American men. More than 1,800 women from China have entered the United States on a K-1 visa in 2019. This number has increased since 2010 when only 1,100 Chinese women have married American men — and we expect the number to grow with time. Here’s another thing you need to know: 1 out of 6 Chinese girls who got married to Americans had already had kids before marriage — almost 300 K-2 visas were issued in 2019.
Cost for mail order brides from China
What is an average Chinese bride price? We’ll tell you here. At first, you can try to do it offline — it’s quite expensive and, well, your chances are not that high if you’re going to meet Chinese girls for marriage on the streets of Beijing. It’s quite hard because street pick up relies on action+luck, but in China, it also relies on your Chinese skills (and on prejudice some of them still have against foreigners). We recommend you try online dating — it’s much easier and cheaper (most mail order bride Chinese websites cost about $25-$50 per month). You’ll still need to move to China to meet Chinese mail order brides — let’s talk about how much it will cost for you:
- The flight will cost you from $1,700 to $6,500 to get to Beijing from New York and vice versa (the faster the cheaper);
- The entertainment budget is about $30 per day;
- Short taxi ride costs about $2;
- A casual lunch for 2 costs about $6-$8.
The average daily cost of a trip to China is $72 per person per 1 day — you’ll have to spend $1,000-$2,600 for 2 weeks in this country. In total, you should be ready to spend from $3,000 to $9,000 for 2 weeks in China.
The truth about Chinese brides
There is no accurate information on the demographics of the dating sites’ users in China. We can assume most Chinese wives who use mail bride websites are in their 20s and 30s. They are well-educated because there are no problems with female higher education in China (almost half of all graduate students here are women). Of course, they have a job — modern Chinese women’s roles are not as traditional as they were before. Another interesting fact is that they are ok if a man is older — the average age gap between an American husband and a Chinese wife is 5-8 years.
Conclusion: Are Chinese ladies really worth it?
If you are still thinking of creating an account on a Chinese mail order wife site, go for it — there are lots of good services with thousands of awesome Chinese girls. It’s very simple, it’s very cheap, and it’s very convenient, so why hesitate?
