Based on the difference of culture background, China and America celebrate their wedding in unique ways.
Before getting married, Chinese couples have to give a formal visit to each other’s parents in order to get the permission of marriage.
Next, they will discuss to choose the best day from the Chinese lunar calendar that is symbol as goodness to get marriage.
It is very important in Chinese culture because it means couples would have a smooth life and good luck after the wedding. In the US the day the couples get engaged is often a special surprise for the girl that the groom-to-be plans with great care.
As of mid-2006, only Massachusetts recognized same-sex marriage.
Regardless of how the relationship is designated by the state, same-sex couples are not entitled to the numerous federal benefits that are accorded to different-sex married couples, because the U. Congress passed legislation in 1996 (the Defense of Marriage Act) specifying that only a marriage between a man and a woman will count as a marriage for federal purposes.China's traditional idea of marriage is believed in “accommodate to the harmonious” philosophy (I Ching: Book of Changes, Fu Xi).It is not only a deal between two people but also related to their families and social relationship.California offers a much more robust array of benefits and responsibilities for domestic partners, although even this status is not the equivalent of marriage.Still other states, such as Vermont, accord to same-sex couples the rights and benefits of marriage, but call the relationship a civil union rather than a marriage.However, there are no limitations on the exact day for a wedding in the US. One of the biggest differences between China and the USA is the format of wedding.In China are three letters and six etiquettes need to be followed in traditional wedding.Other states recognize same-sex unions but stop short of ascribing to those relationships all of the rights and obligations of marriage.For example, Hawaii recognizes reciprocal beneficiaries status, which permits both samesex and different-sex couples to receive certain limited benefits specified by the legislature.For those who choose to marry, and for their children, marriage also provides an abundance of legal, financial, and social benefits.In return it imposes weighty legal, financial, and social obligations (see 2003).
