The number of Hong Kong women marrying men from China's mainland was 6,785 last year, compared to 675 in 1986, increasing nine-fold in the past 26 years, according to statistics released by the Census and Statistics Department of Hong Kong. 

The Hong Kong Ideas Center surveyed marriages between people from China's mainland and Hong Kong from May to July this year, interviewing 502 people. The survey showed that there were 380,000 cross-border marriages between 1997 and 2012. 

The survey pointed out that many Hong Kong people commute frequently to the mainland for work and many mainland students have gone to Hong Kong for further studies, thus contributing to the rise in mainland marriages. 

In addition, women from China’s mainland have said that they appreciate the independent spirit and considerateness that Hong Kong men often display, while Hong Kong men perceive women from China’s mainland to be gentler. 

In recent years, many Hong Kong women with high education degree, career position and income have also been marrying men from China's mainland. 

Chief Research Officer of the Hong Kong Ideas Center Lu Weiqi pointed out that men from China’s mainland are often attracted to independent Hong Kong women. "There seems to be a common perception that girls born under the one-child policy tend to be spoilt and pampered, whereas Hong Kong women are more likely to work hard alongside their husbands," Lu said. 

President of the Hong Kong Ideas Center Anna Lai suggested that the government regularly assess cross-border marriages between Hong Kong and the mainland and create relevant population policies.
