Guangzhou Daily recently reported the plight of a couple whose only daughter insists on marrying a foreigner and staying abroad. With the option of moving in with their daughter unpractical, the couple dread a grim twilight and regret the day they decided to sell their house to send the daughter abroad. What's your opinion on this issue?

How is that different from NOT marrying a foreigner and still staying abroad?

Perhaps the difference is that the two can probably make more money overall, than a single Chinese girl could (abroad or home), and there would be more to share with her family.

They have not thought it through.

Relationship between Chinese parents & their children are so complicated.  Is that the same case in  ...

Not at all. In Europe, as in many other countries, the children grow up and move out to have their on lives. The parents just have to come to grips with that and plan ahead for their old age.
