Tibetan girls don't want to marry Han Chinese? Why do few Tibetan girls marry Han boys?
Recently, traveling to Tibet during Spring Festival has become popular, and strategies can be seen on all major platforms. In photos they posted, we found that there are many beauties in western style clothes. The photos are very beautiful and we can also see existence of many local beauties.
This makes a lot of idiots on internet lament that they want to go to Tibet, marry a Tibetan girl and return home as a wife. However, according to people, Tibetan girls rarely marry Han boys in hinterland, and even many locals strongly oppose intermarriage between different ethnic groups. Why is it so?
(1) Climate Impact
Firstly, these two types of people live in different regions, and influence of geographical location leads to different requirements for their survival. For example, if many inland people go to Tibet, they will suffer from hypoxia due to high altitude, and some will even have to go to hospital to get oxygen to relieve their headaches.
When Tibetan girls want to go inland, they also need some time to adapt to a certain place, because sudden low oxygen level will also make their bodies feel uncomfortable.
This created certain difficulties for mixed marriages between two types of people. Whether it's inland or Tibet, if you want to live elsewhere, you have to overcome physical discomfort.
At same time, many inland guys who go to Tibet won't be able to stand the sun there, and they will easily suffer from altitude sickness, flushed cheeks, or flaky skin. Some people have a hard time adjusting even after a year or two and need to apply a lot of moisturizer to their face every year.
(2) Different regions
Secondly, regions are different: Tibetan girls are accustomed to sparsely populated meadows, where sky is high and sea is wide. If they were allowed to marry domestically, they might not be able to adjust to crowded houses and busy streets. They also sometimes can't get used to humidity and heat in some parts of interior. And Han boys from hinterland are even more unused to pastures.
They want to order takeout and be able to pick up a car as soon as they leave house, and not just go for a walk on grass. These kinds of geographic differences actually require both men and women to adjust to each other, but unless there is a particularly strong relationship, no one is willing to pay that much.
(3) Different Habits
The two peoples also have differences in habits. You should probably know almost everything about habits of Tibetans, for example, they believe in Buddhism and always make pious pilgrimages.
There is also fact that pork is not to be eaten, in addition, there are differences in language, spelling and other aspects. This makes it difficult for Tibetan girls to adapt to domestic environment if they marry domestically.
It's better if you speak Chinese, but if you don't speak Chinese, it's like living in a foreign country. At same time, there is still a huge gap between two ethnic groups regarding wedding etiquette and funeral etiquette.
For example, Tibetan burial rites are difficult for Han people to accept. They take form of heavenly burial of dead, which is difficult for Han people to accept.
(4) Different Diet
Although we all want to try local delicacies when we travel to Tibet, like hand-harvested rice and goat's milk. This is to take advantage of freshness and want to experience it, but after real taste, it will not be so amazing.
Therefore, people in hinterland find it difficult to adapt to eating habits after arriving in Tibet. Most of them eat instant noodles every day. It is also difficult for Tibetan girls to adapt in interior.
Because most of their dishes do not contain chili, pepper or other spices. Let them eat these things suddenly, not only will they not be able to adapt, but they will also cause physical discomfort.
If a person wants to survive, first thing to do is to satisfy their own eating habits. If even eating habits are difficult to satisfy, person will have physical resistance.
(5) Three representations are different
Currently, many Tibetan parents are opposed to their daughters coming into contact with young men inside country, they do not want their daughters to marry outsiders. For example, they believe in Buddhism, but there are different religions in interior, it is difficult to judge which religion a young man believes in.
Inland dwellers also find it difficult to accept a Buddhist wife at home. Differences in religious beliefs are like a horizon line between two people. In addition, there are various differences in three views, for example, Han people pay attention to filial piety and need support of their parents.
In some feudal countries, it is even considered that marriage requires three obediences and four virtues, etc., which places too many restrictions on pasture girls who love to be free. Such a life is like a year. But if a young man is allowed to marry in Tibet, his inner family will not agree.
They not only reject this form of marriage, thinking that others will take their son, but they also fear that it will be difficult for their son to adapt in a remote place. Therefore, even if two young people are very fond of each other, difference in three views between parents is still difficult to overcome.
It is precisely because of these differences that it is difficult to see a Tibetan girl marrying a Han Chinese.
