Chinese marriage became custom during the Warring States Period (476 - 221 BC).

Six Etiquettes Proposing: If an unmarried boy's parents identified a girl as their future daughter-in-law, they would then locate a matchmaker. The matchmaker would formally present his or her client's request to the identified girl's parents.Birth Date Matching: If the potential bride's parents did not object to the marriage, the matchmaker would then ask for the girl's birthday and birth-hour to assure the compatibility of the potential bride and bridegroom.If the couple's birthdays and birth-hours did not conflict according to astrology, the marriage would continue onto the next stage.If there was any sign of astrological conflict, which meant the marriage would bring disasters upon both families, the proposed marriage was immediately quashed.Presenting Betrothal Gifts: Once both birthdays matched, the bridegroom's family would then arrange for the matchmaker to present betrothal gifts, including the betrothal letter, to the bride's family.Presenting Wedding Gifts: After the betrothal letter and betrothal gifts were accepted, the bridegroom's family would later formally send wedding gifts to the bride's family.
