长期以来，中国传统价值观对社会产生了深远的影响，尤其封建的婚恋束缚了传统女性的自由，把她们压得喘不过气来。随着社会的转型与思想的开放，传统文化受到汹涌而至的文化冲击，维持千百年的封建观念被打击得淋漓尽致。西方文化思潮基本上没有遇到任何阻碍便长驱直入，令中国传统文化难以招架。开放的思想及文化解开了女性身上的历史枷锁，对现代女性“性”及婚恋产生了影响，现代女性在理智与情感方面处于矛盾的旋涡,性的观念逐渐开放起来，同时婚恋观起了很大的变化。现代女性在被授予更大的自主与话语权，似乎在物质主义当中迷失了方向。通过《非诚勿扰》这一婚恋交友节目，本文试图探讨女性婚恋观从古至今的变迁，并尝试为在封建保守的婚恋观与现代畸形物质婚恋观之间取得平衡。Women have always been victims of the traditional Chinese patriarchal society. As we re-examine the marriage views which ties down traditional Chinese women, we realized the entire patriarchal society has always been suppressing the social status of women, the lower caste status of women and their lack of freedom and rights just serves to remind us of the inequality faced by Chinese women. Enter the 20th century, China experienced the reformation of her society and values. Changing priorities in love and marriage leads to a revolution. From having no other marriage option, Chinese women see the light to gaining their right to decide for themselves on their own life partners. The rise of feminism in China finally empower and liberate Chinese women, coupled with the influx of western cultures and values, Chinese women are finally able to break out of their arranged marriages and have the right and freedom to seek the love of their lives. However, as feminism starts to gain more prominence in the China, the loss of traditional values seems to have a detrimental effect on the modern marriage views. Through the study of popular matchmaking program “If You Are the One”, this paper seeks to examine the changing trends in the marriage views and value of Chinese women, and try to strike a balance between the traditional marriage views and modern unhealthy marriage views on mass media.
