Is it possible that a foreign (white) woman could live, marry, and make a living in rural China?
Possible. But the question is, why? The fact that the person is living in rural area means he is quite poor. I suggest you not to.

Yes, you can make a living by teaching English in rural China. English teachers especially native speakers are in demand in China. In the cities, it can be competitive, but in the rural area it is not competitive.

Of course you can. The point is how much you will enjoy your life there. Definition Of rural area could be broad. In this case, I would recommend a developed area rather than an underdeveloped one

Fully possible. I know people who have done it. But have you tried living in rural China yet? Expatriate life can sometimes be difficult. Before you go planning the rest of your life out, suggest getting like a one-year contract somewhere and giving it a go
Yep, very easily. Been there, done that! Cost of living is low, if you’re a native English speaker you can make a really great salary teaching English, and finding a Chinese husband really wouldn’t be a problem ;)
Everything is possible.
But “Rural China” is a big concept, since China is so vast in land area and diversified in land form.
Rural China can be like this. Yes, this is not an urban area, it is a picture of the wealthiest Chinese village — Huaxi Village, in eastern Jiangsu Province.
But it can also be like this — a kitchen inside a farm house in Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region in southern China
And there are picturesque villages with natural beauty or traditional taste dotted across the country.
A village in western Shaanxi Province:
A village in central Anhui Province.
A Miao ethnic minority village in southwest Guizhou Province.
A “snow village” in northeastern Heilongjiang Province in the winter.
