I never attributed tenets as simple as honoring and respecting elders, especially parents, to my ethnic upbringing.
You’ll often hear people say that cultural differences are overstated or not as much of a factor as they used to be, and while there is some validity to that, cultural differences are nothing to scoff at – they do most definitely exist.
One of the primary issues here is that for Chinese women, there is a much stronger emphasis on getting married early.
