409
qǔ yī gè tā bǐjiào róngyì jiāoliú de,
娶一个他比较容易交流的,
to marry somebody they can easily communicate with.
Note: In China, the man’s parents usually live with the married couple, and so the wife needs to deal with the man’s family every day.

410
jiùshìshuō tā de xífù, duì duì!
就是说他的媳妇,对对!
I mean their daughter-in-law.

411

那女性的话,因为我们就是说嫁出去嘛,

我觉得是性别原因。
I think that it’s related to gender.

420
Jiùshì yīnwèi shíjìshàng dàjiā duì nánshēng de qīdài dōu shì…
就是因为实际上大家对男生的期待都是…
