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:Hard to say, on the face of it Xi Jinping seems to be trying to do the right thing in clamping down on corruption. I think we will have to wait for a few years yet and see what if anything changes. This is a country that has had corruption at its centre for many generations, long enough that many people do not even recognise corruption when they see it, it is just how things get done. I think the government is aware of what the rest of the world think of China and would like to improve its standing, this is one way of doing it. It maybe a bit like how we see the "development" of China. Tall buildings, high speed trains etc but as far as health, education, pensions and welfare systems hardly any change at all. In other words the highly visible things get the go ahead but the more important things that underpin real civilisation are just shoved to the back of the line. This may be nothing more than trying to gain face. -- tomcatflyer
