My passage is about Chinese women marry to Japanese which aim to escape from their poor and harsh life. Many Japanese men cannot find a bride, especially the farmers and people live in rural area, since the Japanese women become much educated and have higher status, they are able to find a better job so the men in Japan is harder to find a wife. Therefore, they pay a lot of money to the matchmaking agents to find a wife. Women in China who live in northeast area are very poor, so they think that if they marry to Japanese can change their life and the living condition is much better in Japan. Unfortunately after marriage, life is not the same as they imagined, they have to take care of the mother/father-in-law and they have to spend most of their time to do the housework. Besides, they do not even know the language, so they can’t get any friends and they always feel lonely. Moreover, their husband had paid a lot for the marriage so he want a person who is absolutely obedient. Therefore, if the wives make mistakes, the women will be abused.
I think marriage should begin with love, your partner should be the one you love and understood. Marriage is not a kind of business, it should not base on money. If you and your partners do not have love, the relationship will be easily broken down and many problems rise. In this news, the women are poor and not educated, they cannot endure the difficult life so they make this business. They are forced by the environment and cannot hold their future. I feel sorry to them. Hope the government can spend fund to those remote area for education, so that the women can change their life by knowledge and prevent the tragedy happen again.
