Just what we need    another Asian driver on the road who does not understand that 2 objects can not occupies the same space and time

But this time she is determined 

So I told her to go to a driving school and this is how it went

I taught my wife to drive in England, she had never driven a car before. She tried a couple of real English driving lessons on a manual car and gave up because she said it was too hard. She kept on about learning to drive so I took her out one day to a mall car park on a quite day and started to teach her on our Mercedes C200 auto. She did make reasonable progress and drove fairly well on all the roads except motorways, where I would not let her and anyway in England it is illegal to do so on a learner licence. She was ok, but never took her test before we came back to China. Better than most Chinese drive here but still not what I would call a good driver, some days were good and on others she just lost the idea that there were other people out there. She was driving for about two years in all

Yes. she had had a few lessons and I then took her for practice before she went for her license. Got it first time but I am not sure how because she is not very good so I nearly always drive.

I suppose that does not help her improve but we both prefer if I do the driving.

I can tell Chinese drivers at home, no wonder they have such hard times getting visas, they are the worst drivers in the world. They should not ever drive a car. Bicycle yes, car no.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
