The economy in China is booming and reports indicate that the culture is facing challenges. One challenge is the spike in marital infidelity, including taking a 2nd wife!
The Chinese government is not taking this lightly so they have a solution. They are putting marriage records online so anyone in China can look up a name and see if they are lying about their marital status.
So, what's your opinion? I can look at what my neighbor paid for their house. Should I be able to easily look at everyone's and anyone's marital status?
