Vietnamese Dating And Marriage- What Are The Rules?

N.B. By the nature of this list, these rules are a little anecdotal. No offence is meant.

Family Comes First

Vietnamese people are extremely dedicated to family. The average age of marriage is 27, compared to 37 in the U.K. Vietnamese people want to settle down, and what’s more, that means settling down with your husband/wife and parents. It is not uncommon for your spouse’s partner to come and live in the new marital home!

This is also something to bear in mind during the early stages of a relationship. If a Vietnamese man or woman is unmarried, the high probability is that they still live with their parents, which means a potential curfew!

Also, expect parents to quickly ask when you plan to get married. If you’re a commitment-a-phobe and hear the phrase đám cưới diễn ra khi nào? You’re in trouble.

No Drugs Or Heavy Drinking

Drugs like marijuana which are legal in the U.S, are still highly illegal in Vietnam, and if you roll up a joint on a date with a Vietnamese person, they’re likely to be shocked and borderline scared. The same goes for cigarettes and heavy drinking. Very few Vietnamese women smoke. However, this is changing with young people.

Weddings Don’t Cost Anything

My experience is that the size of your wedding is relative to the amount of money you receive in wedding gifts(gifts are always money). If you invite 50 guests and spend $1000, those 50 guests (I don’t know how) will give you roughly $1000 in wedding gift money.
