Sino-Vietnamese people have a long history of transnational marriage. Transnational marriage has become a bond of friendship between the two peoples. This paper takes Z village of pingbian county of Honghe prefecture in Yunnan province as an example to illustrate the status of transnational marriage in the ethnic areas of Sino-Vietnamese border. This paper analyses the reasons why such marriage is difficult to register; Why Vietnamese brides are difficult to locate; Why the survival and development of borderline transnational marriage families are severely limited. It reveals that Vietnamese women in cross-border marriages are facing many difficulties because of various factors, which causes a problem of their national and ethnic identity crisis.
