Well, I see similar notes in the newspaper where people ask for a partner, etc, and I'm from Europe.

So, nothing extraordinary.

Why the parents wanted to find their children a spouse? I think they should mind their own business.

It happens all over the world. Who better than your family to help you find someone? They know you best afterall. It's not like they are forcing or trying to sell their kid. It's not always so negative. When westerners hear about this kid of stuff, they think of child brides and trading their kid of to some old perv.

Well, why not? Traditionally, this has been the favoured method of finding a spouse, and if the spouse is rich enough to purchase the other, would that not mean that he (this is known as the 'universal masculine', thus this pronoun takes the place of a person of a neutral gender, and has no chauvinistic connotation) is able to provide for said spouse.
