Because of the traditional Chinese concept of marriage and love. For the generation born in the 1940s - 1970s, when they are at suitable age of marriage, the vast majority of their marriages are introduced or arranged directly by elders at home. Therefore, couples often have no emotional foundation and are only de facto "couples". This caused the people of that generation to look for specific places to socialize. The most common is to dance Social Dancing together in squares 、parks or underground dance halls. Social dance was introduced into China from abroad in the 1980s and became popular as a way of sports and social.

The survey shows that among middle-aged and elderly people who have been engaged in Social Dance activities for a long time, most of their emotions are transferred from their life partners to their dance partners. Some people even cheat on their life partners.

The work “Grandmother’s Choice” tries to explore the living conditions, marriage, and dating concepts of the people who were born in the 1940s -1970s from a personal perspective and combined with social facts.
