Concubines in China today

For such a crowded place, China can be awfully lonely sometimes.

See, this piece from the UK Telegraph . It's an interesting article discussing women who've opted to forsake love and affection for financial gain.

I've known some people who've been in situations like this. It leaves scars. Arguably, it's their choice, but then they spend years afterwards trying to not just justify the choice to themselves, but to shape a worldview where such a choice is seen as superior to those who have gone a more conventional, emotionally-satisfying route. Which, like many things, leads to scars upon scars.
