The Compass

Shanghai, City of Youth - Part Two

The Compass

Haining Liu explores the pressure on China's one-child generation to marry and start a family. At the β€˜marriage market’ in central Shanghai she meets the anxious parents desperate to find a suitable match for their single offspring and drops in on a speed dating event in the city where young men and women are hoping to find a life partner. But young people are increasingly also choosing a career or the single life over the traditional family, and despite the stigma of being unmarried over 30, Haining explores a new trend for women to freeze their eggs so they can delay marriage and motherhood.
