Chinese dating marriage
In ancient China, before any matchmaking could take place, their potential match must first be approved by their parents first.In some cases, there are parents who promised their children to a certain family that has a connection to them.This is mostly known as the four pillars of birth time.
In ancient Chinese dating customs, if a boy’s family wants to propose to a certain family’s daughter, a matchmaker should be present in order for them to properly propose to the girl’s family and check whether the potential couple will be a good match or not based on their birthdate, including the exact time they were born.
Just like in the ancient Chinese dating culture, parents will and always be involved with who they’re children are dating.
But unlike before, the individual can freely choose who they want to date without taking advantage of meetings and festivals.
Compared to dating in ancient times, dating has become more free and open-minded. From being dependent on matchmakers and certain festivals, single men and women could now freely choose who they want to date either through connections or online dating platforms anytime they want.
During periods between 1046 BC – 771 BC, a certain tradition must be followed in order to for couples to get married.
