My Dream AsianLearn more about the marriage culture in Asia and why you
should marry an Asian woman.

The marriage culture in Asia varies from country to country. Generally, their perception and ways of dating and marriage stem from their religion, culture, traditions, and social norms. Two of the most common religions in Asia are Christianity and Buddhism, comprising millions of followers from all over the continent.

As the world evolves to cope with digital advancement, Asian women sign up on international dating platforms with high hopes of finding their life partner. While their perspective on dating remains, they have extended the range of their dating journey by reaching out to men from the far West.

Many Asian women have embraced the trend of online international dating and are eager to pursue interracial relationships that can ultimately lead to tying the knot.

Among the 49 countries in Asia registered in the UN, the Philippines, China, and Thailand are the top three countries where singles are most active on several dating apps and sites. Many men from across the world have traveled beyond borders just to meet the women from these countries in person.

It’s not enough to meet your potential Asian bride online; you’ll need to meet her in person too. But before doing that, you’ll need a starter kit of tips and information found on this page and other parts of our website to come prepared, confident, and ready.

Here is the marriage culture that exists in the aforementioned Asian countries:

  • The Philippines

In this country, arranged marriages are extremely rare outside of the Muslim regions of the nation. Most single Filipino men and women from Catholic backgrounds are given the chance to find their own partners in life.

Throughout the dating journey, couples tend to spend time getting to know each other before considering marriage. Divorce and abortion are illegal and taboo subjects as the nation is strongly grounded in Christian beliefs, resulting in deep-seated monogamy and a potentially relentless number of children per household.

Filipino women are open-minded, especially when it comes to May-December relationships and interracial marriages. Philippine weddings take place within an hour-long ceremony at a church or at a local government court. Although the groom is expected to pay for the wedding, it’s socially acceptable for him and the bride to split the budget for the event.

  • China

In ancient times (and in some rural parts of China to this day), Chinese parents used to arrange marriages for their children. However, modern times have given single Chinese women the freedom to choose who they can love and marry.

Chinese legend puts a very romantic touch on the concept of marriage. It says that couples that are destined to marry have invisible red strings connecting them, which gets shorter until the time comes when they wed.

Social norms have dictated Chinese men’s preference for their brides, which is that they should be several years younger than them, should be earning less, and should be less educated.

The legal age for women to marry starts at age 20. By that time, they will only have five years to find their life partner before society refers to them as “sheng nu,” also known as leftover women who haven’t gotten married.

The socially dictated preferences of men lowered the chances of highly educated women for marriage. This led to thousands of Chinese women seeking partners from the far West over men from their own country.

  • Thailand

Thailand has various marriage practices and customs. The country accepts two kinds of marriages: traditional Buddhist marriage and civil union. In fact, many of Thailand’s culture and traditions are influenced by Buddhist wedding ceremonies and rituals.

Marriages are taken very seriously and are considered sacred bonds. When setting a date for the wedding, Thai couples usually consult astrologers. August is the most popular month for tying the knot.

Dowries, which in their language is called “sin sod,” are also part of their culture. In Thailand, dowries don’t have a negative connotation as they are deemed as a way for the groom to express his gratitude to the bride’s parents in raising her well. It’s also sometimes called “for mother’s milk.”

However, in modern Thailand, dowries are only accepted by the bride’s parents for the sake of tradition as they don’t necessarily want to take the money for their daughter’s hand in marriage. They often first accept the dowry and use it afterward to help pay for the wedding.

Why Marry an Asian Woman

Like with Westerners, Asian marriage culture is based not only on individual notions of love and romance, but also focuses on family and community. When you marry an Asian woman, you are also marrying her family. However, this isn’t a burden for the groom. Most families provide freedom for their daughters to choose their marriage partners.

Most of the women in Asia are becoming more educated, intelligent, assertive, career-driven, confident, and independent contrary to the sweeping statements their Western counterparts have for them. And yet, while they have adapted to modern ways, humility, chastity, respect, and other qualities of womanhood remain.
