Chinese News of Interest: Put the Ring in Your Pocket & a Chinese Mason-Dixon Line

Number of Hidden Marriages Increases in China. I had no idea there were any hidden marriages in China, but according to this article many couples feel the need to hide their wedded bliss from co-workers and potential bosses  in order to actually get jobs, keep them, and get promoted. As my friend Grace said today, it's definitely a slippery slope. Denying such an important thing as ones marriage must lead to even bigger lies.

In other news. China is drawing the line between North and South (which probably means that we will never get proper heating down here.) The formation of a new park to draw the line has caused some controversy. Where's the harmonious society, people?
