Default Can unmarried couples live together in China? US man & PRC woman?

I have a new employee living in China on a Z visa (1 year work permit). He has a girlfriend and they live together in Beijing.

But...

He is moving to an apartment owned by my company and she is coming with him. Can they live together legally?

He brought it up because he thought it might be a problem in a small city (Jiangsu province). And my translator there said it was illegal and felt strongly that it would be a big problem.

Further more he is double her age. It is a legit relationship, he did not find her online or anything. She was a student at his university. But my consultant said local people may think otherwise and I don't want to risk losing my lease.



thanks for help.

It is illegal in China for a foreign national to live with a Chinese citizen. It is most likely overlooked in a citry the size of Beijing, but there is a pretty good chance their neighbors are not happy about it.
