Would you get married at 18? #thisweekinweibo

2Is 18 too young to marry?

At this week’s National People’s Congress in China, one of the national people’s congress members has suggested changing the legal minimum age of marriage to 18 years old. This subject went to the polls on Sina weibo. 

Quite a few people thought it is a good idea because in most foreign countries people can get married when they are 18. But one-third people show the opposite views. In their opinions, 18-year-olds are too young to get married because:

  1. They’re still children and are not emotionally mature
  2. It will lead to higher divorce rate
  3. Most people in this age haven’t finished study
  4. It’s just ridiculous

That was this week’s top topic on weibo. Here’s what else was catching people’s interest.
