―Do you have the arrenged marriage?― Taiwanese doesn't have the arranged marriage. Long time ago, maybe 10,20 years ago, there was still the arranged marriage in Taiwan. But now, this generation, they deeply believe "truly love". Sometimes, the relation between arranged marriage doesn't have the true love. Therefore, the relation becomes meaningless. ―What do you do if you can’t find the partner??― And if someone want to get married, but they can’t find their ideal mate, they would attend a club. The club will gather a lot of men and women, playing some games or eating lunch and dinner. By those activities, those single people would find their ideal candidate for wife or husband.
