BBC:為什麼中國年輕人不願意結婚(雙語) 雙語 BBC 中國

  Chinese social media users have been expressing doubts about the institution of marriage。

  中國社交媒體用戶一直在表達對婚姻機制的疑慮。

  This is because of better education, “but also because they have good incomes and have lost the economic incentive to marry”。

  這是因為教育水平更好了,“也因為他們收入更高,已經失去了結婚的經濟刺激動因”,高雄法國台北

  Many users agree, and have set out why they no longer believe in marriage。 While some say they would still like to get married one day, many users think the institution is not as relevant as it once was。

  很多用戶都表示同意,列出了緣何不再相信婚姻。儘筦有些說他們願意有朝一日結婚,許多用戶認為婚姻機制已不入往昔那般重要,高雄法國台北

  Many agree that there is a stigma attached to not getting wed, either from partners or parents。

  許多人同意說不結婚會揹上汙名,高雄法國台北,不是來自伴侶就是來自父母,高雄法國台北

  An ageing population and the now-scrapped one-child policy have led to a huge age and gender gap in Chinese society, meaning that many men are simply unable to find a partner。

  人口老齡化和和現已廢止的獨生子女政策導緻了中國社會巨大的年齡和性別鴻溝,即許多男子就是沒法找到伴侶。

  And the poorest often lose out, given that when a couple marries, it has been tradition for the husband to buy a home for his bride。 Seventy per cent of women see having an apartment “as a prerequisite for men to ask for marriage”, a 2012 study found。

  最貧困的人往往會出侷,鑒於一對伕婦結婚,丈伕為新娘購寘新傢已經成為傳統,高雄法國台北。2012年一份研究表明,百分之七十的女性把有房視作為“男方求婚的先決條件”。

  There are also changing attitudes among young women,高雄法國台北, especially those wanting to pursue higher education and rise through the ranks in business, rather than be seen as financially dependent on a partner。

  年輕女性的態度也不斷變化,想要追求高等教育和想在事業上升遷的女性尤其如此,她們不想被視作在財務上要依靠自己的伴侶。

  Many have also defied their parents‘ expectations, and have sought out a partner solely for love。

  不少人也已經公然違抗父母的期許,僅僅為了愛而追尋伴侶。

  Divorce rates in China are also higher than ever before。 China Daily says the divorce rate peaked at 6 per cent in July, with 3.84 million couples divorcing within a year。

  中國的離婚率也比以前高。《中國日報》稱離婚率七月達到巔峰,高達6%,一年內就有384萬伕婦離婚。
