It's week 2 and there is a new inquiry to look at. You still can go to the blog home page and continue to review past discussions.

Have you seen the online video of the young woman throwing a childish tantrum in a Chinese car dealership, because her fiancé won't agree to buy the car she wants? In the video, she proceeds to climb inside the car she wants and drives back and forth inside the showroom until her fiancé pulls out his credit card and promises to buy the car?

This incident was followed by many other YouTube videos asking men and women about what worldly possessions are important to a successful match relationship in China. There is also an interesting opinion on this event in an article titled, Money Honey: The cost of dating in China, from eChinacites.com.

For this week's discussion, what is your opinion? Is this a bit of sensationalism by a media outlet looking to spotlight the worst of Chinese consumer behavior, or are there a significant number of Chinese available singles seeking materialistic rewards from their partners rather than love?
