Will you choose a 'naked' marriage?

( Updated: 2014-08-12 08:16

Editor's note: Many young couples, especially post-80s in China, are opting for "naked" marriages ("裸婚") – tying the knot without buying houses and cars or even holding a ceremony. Do you think you can strip away all the materialism and just marry for love? Readers from around the world share their views. You're welcome to leave your comments.

I could not accept a totally "nude" marriage, but partially "naked". I can forget the shining diamond ring and splendid ceremony but my bottom line is an apartment where we could live our lives in a stable environment. Marriage is not just a piece of paper, nor a fairy tale. It's reality. I totally agree that it cannot survive if there's no material base. Those sad stories of broken couples come as a warning to me that one should have both psychological and material aspects prepared before getting married.
