Since the 1990s, a large number of peasant workers pouring into the city have atremendous impact on the communityand brought profound changes to the rural com-munity. As a result, peasant workers’intentions of spouse choosing have got significa-cant changes.This paper takes peasant workers of L village in Gansu as the subjects, and adop-ts the qualitative research methods, together with the literature, structured and unstru-ctured-case interviews, basing on the dual social structure and social mobility of theBackground description, analysis of their intention and behavior of Spouse-Choosing,and their confusion in Spouse-Choosing. It is revealed that peasant workers gottremendous economic benefits and concept, ways of thinking, and logic behaviordifferent from these of a traditional agricultural society. Peasant workers show moreautonomy and take more initiative in Spouse-Choosing. And as to the standard ofSpouse-Choosing, they pay more attention to personal qualities and economiccapacity. Cities and mobile experience forms a strong contrast with the ruralcommunity, which has a profound impact on Peasant workers. Spouse-Choosing is acomplex social phenomenon, and the role of emotional factors is growing, buteconomic and personal status has become more prominent.Great difference between urban, rural way of life and also of urban bias to ruralareas, and the small circle of contacts of peasant workers, bring less opportunity inSpouse-Choosing. In essence, the peasant workers’intentions and behavior ofSpouse-Choosing are determined by its "double edge" identity. In other words, theirpositions in social structure influence and decide their intentions and behavior ofspouse-Choosing.As Giddens discussed, the modernity has exerted impact not only on economic,political and other public areas but also has brought profound changes to private life.Modernity, which is usually closely connected with and has become a way of lifeclosely connected with the current strength of the hegemonic disco advanced life style,became the most powerful speech. In the meantime, the young migrant workers werealso deeply attracted by the representative free love mode of the modern life, but in fact the problems they encountered in Spouse-Choosing are complex and they are inthe fracture of modern development.
