Because there is structural imbalance among marriageable men and women in rural areas, the cases of"High Price to Get a Wife"have taken place in many villages frequently. This paper discusses its mechanism(marriage payments soaring) on the basis of empirical study. Wealthy rural families and families lacking sons launching "standards of decency"in marriage payments are the source of marriage payments soaring. The infiltration of the matchmaker vocation and the culture of consumerism in rural marriage practice trend promote the marriage payment. Comparison between women's families and shifting psychology boost the soaring payment. Such phenomenon totally ran counter to the good customs and civilization the policy of building a socialist countryside advocates. The governments at various levels as well as management institutions of villages should play a role in giving correct guidance.
