The surge of 'cradle-snatcher' love, in which a woman finds a young partner in an intimate relation, has reflected the rise of women's social status in China at present, according to a research paper published in recent days.
Li Chunling, an academician from the Institute of Sociology in the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences (CASS), made the judgment in her latest paper, which cast a light on the new trend in Chinese marriages.
In the past, it was a popular practice for a man to find a younger wife and the public often cannot accept the reversed phenomenon in a marriage.
However, a recent survey found that the marriage between a woman and a younger spouse, has seen a huge increase in the past few years. The proportion of such marriages has risen up from 13.2 percent in 1990 to 40.13 percent in 2010.
During an interview with Guangzhou Daily, Li related the trend to the remarkable increase of women's social status nowadays. She continued that the public has become more and more tolerant towards the phenomenon.

In addition, the improvement made by women in their educational status has also contributed to the phenomenon, Li explained in the interview.
