Q: What are the divorce customs in China?

I remember seeing a movie a while back with that famous bald Chinese actor (whose name I forget). During the movie a couple was getting a divorce, and they each burned a piece of paper (I think) and placed them in an urn.

Anyone know what this is about?

If you search on Internet "Divorce Law in China in English" you can have the whole thing there, and it will not he heresay.

Of course, it will depend on nationalities of those involved, if both Chinese law will apply, if one is not, he (or she) will get royally screwed (the foreigner).

A:I have a few Chinese friends who got their driving license and will be the first to say they are either terrible drivers, or can't drive at all. My ex girlfriend is one of them, she told me how it worked when she did it. Like Xinyuren said, the driving school is not concerned about putting competent drivers on the road, their only concern is money. They 'teach' you to get the car moving and I think drive around some traffic cones or something... a few very basic competency tests.But, just like every other test, license, qualification, certification, red stamp or general permission to do something here you are expected to pay the person if you want to receive it. It's probably not even seen as all that unfair. The person with the power bought their position not for the salary but for the power to extort money for something people need.Pay the money and give them the face they 'deserve' for being in a position of power, you get what you want. Don't pay and it doesn't matter how good you are, there will always be some vaguely worded rule or law you failed to adhere to so.... sorry. Try again. The scary thing is that often, all you have to do is pay the money and you can't fail the test. Universities are a great example of this."You can't fail me (outrage outrage) , I already paid for it".I think of this every time I get on a plane, or go to a hospital. Or cross the street.  -- Stiggs
