Vietnamese dating rituals
When westerners look at Vietnamese love relationships, they may be astonished by the differences between the cultures.Whether it's the customs of a rural village or the high-tech flirtations in the metropolis, the way that Vietnamese love relationships form and develop are very interesting.Most Vietnamese parents prevent their children from having a boyfriend or girlfriend when they are in their late teens because they want their children to concentrate on their study.Paradoxically, should their beloveds are going to reach 30, they would certainly urge him or her to get married.Editor’s Note: These are the sole observations of Az NHeart Throb only. All examples are NOT based on any real people (that draft has been deleted and replaced with these lovely hypotheticals). In all cases, the male will have a much lower education level, in all likelihood an AA degree*. As it were, 3 years later, I’m not this bitter anymore. Said male will typically be a heavy smoker, an even more heavy drinker, most likely a gambler and ideally, holds a job that is far less advanced than his female counterpart.Classified by a relationship that has lasted since high school through their mid-twenties, and in all likelihood, will result in a marriage.This is typically the ONLY possible way for a Vietnamese American male to marry a Vietnamese American female that is successful AND attractive.
The young female learns early on that a Vietnamese American male is up against all odds and feels the need to nurture him, similar to how her mother responded when her father was upset or angry.It's not that they don't want their children to love their mates, they simply assume that part of a child's obedience and honor to their parents will include being happy with the arranged marriage."She likes him because I think he is a very good match for her," said one Vietnamese mother of her daughter in an interview with Iana Iebozec.These betrothed children, unless they move from the village for work or some other reason, almost always end up marrying the person their parents pick.However, the idea of "love" as westerners think of is not factored into the arrangement.
