Recently, a dating website released a report in which single women take the "starting salary for love" as a minimum requirement to accept their ideal boyfriend. In the report, most women from the 90's, 80's and 70's require a partner who is able to make more than 5000 yuan a month as "starting salary for love". There are differences in different cities. The most expensive are in Shanghai, Shenzhen and Beijing, where "the starting salary for love" is above 8000 yuan. This report made many people astonished and said it was too high.
The appearing "starting salary for love" represents a set of values but not the truth. Will you be happier if you are rich? It can't be answered with yes or no. Just like a pop song lyric said "love is not something you can buy". Similarly, happy marriage is also not something you can buy.
