Shidduch Crisis Solutions: The Meet Market
I got stuck reading Marie Claire this shabbos and read about a Meet Market in China. Parents in Shanghai are fed up that their children are spending more time at work and less time trying to get married. Since 1996 parents have been meeting on Saturday mornings in this big public square with pictures and profiles of their children in hand to try and find suitable mates.
Sounds like a real Shidduch Crisis to me and these people are actually doing something different about it – instead of just giving more funding to the same old solutions, they have gone outside the box and been proactive.
