I can totally related to this. Mental insane people do not get institutionalized and healed with pills like they do in Europe. Even more they are usually protected by legal authorities like police, court and as well laws, and families are on their side.
And when it comes to marriage do not think there are few random cases.Yea people who are happy do not share their happy life stories online, but as well many being divorced keep things to them self and try to move on. My good friend was married for 2 years in Taichung. What he thought was hard period of trying to have a baby ,was actually her doing many abortions. He wants to divorce, but family blaming him, for not making enough money to make her feel safe, secure. He ended up paying money to family for divorce papers. I know what crazy sum it is, cause i borrowed him too.
When you marry a girl from another culture a lot of things can be hidden easier from her side. Is chinese culture to save face first. They are good at hiding their real personalities and emotions. This is how they are raised. With man being crazy in love is recipe for disaster.
Reality with marriage it straight forward simple. Over 50 % of them end up in divorce. When i married i thought is for life and it end up the very badly. I admit it, was naive, but far from being dump, i come from strong connection and family, just knew i can count on them. I was always independent from early age of high school, but when i need help i made my call and ask for help.
A man should always be careful when he decided to go for marriage. Is huge legal commitment, and divorced laws are not on the side of a man. Not in the west, neither in Taiwan.
Guys protect yourself and stop being naive.
