In a research paper the argument that I was trying to make was that the pattern of mating and marriage in recent China has changed and that women are giving more preference to dating wealthy men. The topic was focused on what Delia (2005) calls ‘the marriage market’. The reason why I found this argument and topic appealing for my work is because this is a growing trend that figures in sociology, which is also my major. In addition, the topic has scope to be developed further. This topic is an interesting one, it is not only related to Women’s Studies but also ties into different social problems like that of gender selective abortions, changing culture and more. I will be able to use research findings for a future paper in my sociology studies.
