Chinese marriage

Traditional Chinese marriage as opposed to marriage in modern China, is a ceremonial ritual within Chinese societies that involve a union between spouses, sometimes established by pre-arrangement between families. Within Chinese culture, romantic love and monogamy was the norm for most citizens. Wedding rituals and customs often varied by region because of China's extensive and rich history and because of the numerous different cultures and ethno-linguistic groups that have been subsumed into modern Chinese culture.

Nu Wa and Fu Xi were twins who are considered the first humans in Chinese mythology. They were the only survivors of a horrible flood. They realized everything was destroyed. The duo wanted to get married, but were very ashamed, even though the world was unpopulated. They went up to Kunlun Shan and prayed to the heavens asking for permission to marry, and if they were allowed to, to shroud them in mist. They were given permission and surrounded in mist. In Traditional China, they considered this to be the beginning of marriage customs.
