The new hit TV series "裸婚时代 (Luǒhūn shídài) Getting Married with No Car, No House, and No Wedding" has stimulated many passionate discussions since its release. The series is about two lovers who "结婚 (jiéhūn) get married" without a house, a car, "钻戒 (zuànjiè) diamond ring," fancy ceremony or a "蜜月 (mìyuè) honeymoon," but just a nine-Yuan "结婚证 (jiéhūnzhèng) marriage certificate." Today this is commonly referred to as "裸婚 (luǒhūn) getting married with no car, no house, and no wedding."

To learn more about this popular TV series, watch the trailer at:

"裸婚 (luǒhūn) Getting married with no car, no house, and no wedding" became a popular internet phrase recently. A vastly growing number of young people today are putting less emphasis on the "traditional" marriage practice.

The typical person willing to "裸婚 (luǒhūn)" or "get married without a car, a house, and an elaborate wedding" is in the 20-35 year-old age group, who are more open-minded and willing to accept new trends than the average person. Some are well educated, "白领 (báilǐng) white-collar workers" with high-level incomes. They believe that there is nothing wrong with two people living together with a marriage certificate and not having done any of the traditional customs.
