It means something like 'to grow old'. :P *Google Translate FTW* Lauren, who speaks Mandarin/Chinese, added it. *Fist pump*

Yup. I'm kind of bad in Mandarin :P
白头到老 (simplified Chinese version)means to stay together even when your hair is white, something people usually say in weddings :P

When people get married in China, they get given 168 units of money, because it sounds like Chinese for 'success all the way' or something like that, so I'm giving LST 84 fezzes, and Kiwara 84 thestrals.

No, Japanese. :P I doubt I'd be able to learn Mandarin. At least, speak it. I border on tone-deaf, I think. xD Don't the meanings of what you say depend on the pitch of your voice?

Yes...that's why Mandarin is annoying. It has four tones, but Cantonese has nine. But I"m used to it.
