Exactly, there is also an insane amount of social pressure in China to get married before you are 30. So you have an enormous amount of single men who constantly hear that they "should find a nice girl and get married".

My girlfriend is Chinese. The first time I was introduced to her extended family people were saying they were "expecting good news soon". We were together a bit longer than a year at that point.

Apparently, it is also very uncommon in China to live on your own, or to live with roommates, you tend to just live with your parents until you get married, which is when you move in with your partner. Getting married at a fairly young age just seems to be very ingrained in the culture.
