Transcending Confucianism, Socialism, and Modernization: Chinese Marriage and Family in Transition Nov 01, 2018 from 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM 273 Social Sciences & Humanities Building,
It is puzzling that educational level, urbanization, women’s labor force participation or economic development have managed to make little impact on the marriage institution in China. Marriage prevalence and young age at first marriage have budged little. The traditional practice of hypergamy of women marrying up to men of higher status and income appears to have intensified. Contrary to the Second Demographic Transition but consistent with other East Asian countries, marriage remains a powerful institution in regulating fertility and cohabitation behaviors. Almost all births are linked with marriages, and non-marital births are rare. Cohabitations, although increasing, are purposeful and intending to lead to eventual formal nuptials. My book project uses complex and large-scale national data to provide a multi- dimensional analysis of the Chinese gender, marriage, and family system during a time when many countries are experiencing the Second Demographic Transition. I illustrate the ways in which the Chinese patriarchal family system based on Confucianism evolves and transforms in the era from socialism to modernization and globalization.
