The girls are waiting today for flowers, belgian made chocolates and a romantic dinner in a restaurant that has overprized its food for this special day. Valentine’s day has gotten some traction here in Shanghai as I noticed last year and I’m sure this year it will be even more popular.
To stay in the mood some statistics about Marriage and Divorce in Shanghai.
Number of divorces in Shanghai in 2006 - 37,000
Number of marriages in Shanghai in 2006 - 162,000
70 percent of the couples who divorced within a year of getting married were born in the 1980s.
Now you can start calculating what the chances are your Valentine investment will pay off:)
And before you ask, yes I’m married and am going to pay 888 Renminbi for a love dinner. They even promise a box of chocolates at the end.
