Chinese women seeking second marriages in US

New America Media writer Jun Wang reports that some middle-aged Chinese women are now turning to American cities to find their new husbands. In a report, which is part of a NAM series on elders in America, Jun writes:

Sue Zhang never thought that her mother would marry an American man on her first visit to the United States.

But Zhang, a Chinese graduate student living in Montgomery, Ala., now translates for the newlywed couple, who don’t speak a common language.

Zhang’s 57-year-old mother, Guangzhen Lu, is a retired primary school teacher from Hubei Province, China. She lived alone for years after her husband died.

For the rest of the report, please go to NAM site
