Culture and history

Culture & history Structurally, one of the first laws to define people's relationships was the Hong Kong Matrimonial Ordinance passed in 1972. The law set the precedence to ban concubinage and same sex marriages with a strict declaration for heterosexual relationships with one partner only.[2] Other economic changes include families in need of assistance due to both working parents. In particular, foreign domestic helpers have become an integral part of the household since the late 1980s. Traditional Chinese values such as "family solidarity", "courtesy" and "saving face" carries significant weight in the minds of the people. Hong Kong's mainstream culture derives from, or is heavily influenced by, the Cantonese from the neighbouring province of Guangdong, China. There are also substantial communities of Hakka, Fukien, Teochew and Shanghainese people.
