Course teaches Chinese women how to marry 'elite' foreigner


Couples find marital bliss at a mass wedding in Hangzhou, but others may need some help. 

Droves of women from across China flocked to Shanghai's Love and Marriage Expo this month in hopes of learning a tip or two about how to get hitched.

But Liang Yali, founder of the Seek-a-Husband Training Programme, has been teaching such skills in the metropolis for years.

Ninety days thats all it will take for her training programme to teach single women how to find and marry that laowai (expatriate) knight in shining armour, Liang purported, in an interview.

After a 1-month courtship, Liang managed to find the American husband of her dreams you know, the honest, considerate type who happens to be a general manager at some big multinational corporation. The two are now happily married.

Liang decided to enter the marriage business in 2009 after her experiences as a divorced and single mother. She said she had hoped to mass produce her happiness to the spurned and desperate.

Her Seek-a-Husband course, which specialises in teaching women how to find elite Westerner husbands, launched in Shanghai to widespread acclaim she boasts that her success rate has stayed at a constant 60 per cent as well as controversy.

The programmes target market is women above 35, divorcees and the so-called shengnu or left-behind woman, although clients are getting younger by the day.

Many Chinese women over the age of 35 experience difficulties finding husbands domestically, but in the west, in many foreigners minds, women aged 35 are seen as most attractive, Liang said. She said her courses teach women how to select appropriate targets, use charm and to sell their "intellect".

She gave examples of success stories such as how a 35-year-old woman from northeastern China learned a bit of English and managed to find a husband who worked as a manager at a large German construction company.

The least expensive one-day course costs 2,800 yuan, and more advanced modules can be taken for more than 40,000 yuan. Theres also the unlimited package, which entitles customers to attend all classes for a cool 100,000 yuan.

Liangs venture has been slammed repeatedly for ethical reasons. It drew heat recently after its youngest client was reported to be just 17 years old. It has also been criticised for teaching women to throw money at love and encouraging young girls to look for rich, expat sugar daddies.

But Liang stressed that if your purpose is to find a rich man, please do not sign up. We are in the business of happiness.
