Chinese Women Prefer Their Men Make Twice the National Average Income, Survey Finds

Chinese women said their ideal man’s income is twice as much as the actual national average, according to a new online survey.

After questioning 15,000 unmarried people in China on their expectations in regard to money in a romantic relationship, Jiayuan.com found that women wanted their partner to earn an average of 6,701 yuan ($1,027) per month, reports the South China Morning Post.

Unfortunately for single Chinese women, the national average income for men in the country is a much lower 2,808 yuan ($431).
