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:People always ask me when I will leave China. I have fallen into a love/hate relationship with China. I love the fact that it is ever changing and I am curious to be part of that change. Yet, i hate so many of the things that conflict with my western mentality. So, I aswer to the question of when I plan to leave is not available right now. I have been here two years. I have yet to grow as negative as many of my other foreigner compatriots. If I get to that point I will leave. There is very little in America that is calling me home. I lived there for 45 years of my life. Been there and done that. But, in this experience in China, I have learned that the world is a big place to explore. And, as an ESL teacher, so much of it is available to me. But, for the time being, I will stay here and experience the China that has made its way into my life. When I do leave, it will be bittersweet. I love Asia. I want to see it before moving onto other parts of the world. Eventually, I hope to live my retiring days working as a teacher in South America and having some great adventures like I have ad here in China. -- nashboroguy
