Abstract and Keywords
Since 1970, mainland China has been undergoing social and economic reforms that have brought about astonishing economic success. This article reveals that these social and economic changes have led to many changes in Chinese interpersonal relationships, and family structures and processes. They are not limited to mainland China but can also be seen in other Chinese habitats, such as Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan. The article focuses on Chinese relationship research conducted in the last decade and examines how the rapid social and economic changes in Chinese societies have exerted an impact on the various types of interpersonal relationship. Furthermore, it looks at how traditional Chinese values continue to shape interpersonal relationships amidst the increasing influence of modernization and globalization. In terms of interpersonal relationships, it focuses on four broad domains, namely friendship, romantic relationships, marital relationships, and family relationships, providing a review of the relevant studies in each domain.
