As for me, I have an extremely conservative mother in law and nothing is going to change her. Her sister’s son married a Politics Teacher Life Happy Valentines Day Leopard T Shirt tee and she always complained that her nephew brought someone who cannot speak Chinese into the family. My wife told me that I wouldn’t be approved if I couldn’t speak Cantonese. I didn’t go to Chinese school so I cannot read Chinese. And I found out later that she couldn’t either because she came from a poor family and didn’t go to school but that didn’t stop her from being prejudiced. To add on, I just heard on the radio where they were asking for listeners to call in if they have any sad Valentine’s story to share. A girl called in and told that her mother didn’t approve of her boyfriend because he’s from China (WTH???). Her mother don’t want her to date any foreigners, even if he’s Chinese. She was sobbing a little because she had to break up with him. My answer to your question is because some of them are still too conservative and traditional. I have even heard of some that insist the partner to be from the same dialect (Hokkien especially) to ensure their purity. At the bottom of it all, they don’t want to lose their precious son/daughter.
