… than marry an Egyptian man if this article is accurate in depicting what they think of Chinese women!
According to this article here in China’s People’s Daily, an alarming number of Egyptian men, mainly at the DOM age of over 35, just called in — to the Chinese Embassy in Cairo, that is! The only problems they are reporting are their bachelor issues, though, and I’m not talking about their college degrees! No, these Egyptian men are calling the embassy in hopes of landing a Chinese bride.
It seems that the people who built the great pyramids are now seeking to build great bilateral relations that will eventually result in a family.
Asian women are stereotyped as being full of “obedience and loyalty,” and apparently more and more Egyptian men like this distorted view. I blame the media for this.
We do get cheap products manufactured in China because labor is cheaper overseas. However, the Egyptian men make it seem as if Chinese women themselves are a cheap product because they don’t require the lavish dowry that their Egyptian counterparts demand. It’s the “financial situation of Egyptian youths” that “is the major reason behind their preference for Chinese brides,” according to the article.
It seems as if the few, and less rich Egyptian men are being stereotypical and using the easy way out because they think all Chinese women don’t require as much as their Egyptian counterparts. I understand their financial hardships, but ignoring traditions like a dowry doesn’t necessarily mean respecting it.
Perhaps people need an education from Puerto Rican Jennifer Lopez and realize that “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.”
