I also dislike how she is so passive that she lets him make every single decision regarding their relationship. He doesn't ask if she wants to date him -- he just tells someone she's his girlfriend, and she goes along with it. He doesn't wait for her to take any initiative s*xually -- he just goes for it every time while she's frozen for the entire thing. He doesn't ask her if she wants to get married -- he just goes to her parents without her knowledge, then brings her to sign the certificate in a daze. Maybe this is normal in Chinese romance (?), but as a reader who likes when females have brains and opinions... it was very frustrating.
