= naked marriage
In recent years, as the costs associated with getting married have increased dramatically and weddings become more a display of wealth than love and commitment, more young people have warmed to the ideas of naked weddings.
Naked weddings are quite simply weddings represented by no more than a marriage certificate. There is no ring, no dress, no ceremony, no honeymoon - and for many this is extends to no house or car, things which is normally considered prerequisites for marriage in China.
While popular with younger generations as a representation of pure love in a materialistic world, many older generations disagree. They argue that these weddings are bad; particularly for women as there is no indication of investment which to some suggests lacking commitment.
