BEIJING, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- More than 80 percent of Chinese people born after the 1980s hold no discriminatory beliefs regarding homosexuality, according to a survey on marriage perspectives conducted by jiayuan.com, a major Chinese dating website.

The survey results, which were published in the Monday edition of the Beijing News, indicate that 83 percent of respondents born between 1980 and 1989, as well as 82 percent of those born after 1990, do not disapprove of homosexuality.

The online survey of 85,439 people, most of whom were between the ages of 20 and 50, revealed that about 15 percent of female respondents would not marry a man who does not own an apartment and a car.

When asked about their opinion of cross-border marriages, respondents mainly cited greater welfare and improved education for their children, as well as a preference for overseas culture, as their reasons for preferring a cross-border marriage.

Jiayuan.com claims to be China's largest dating website, with more than 40 million registered users.
