Q: How to replace lost marriage book?

Recently my wife's bag was stolen whilst traveling and it had both our marriage registration books in it.

 

Does anybody know how to get a replacement, we are registered in Wuhan as she is from Hubei but live in Dongguan. Would we need to travel there to get new ones? could one person go or do we need to travel together?

 

Hope somebody can shed some light on the matter.

 

Thanks

alternate solution, if you haven't registered your marriage in your home country, get another proof of singleness, marry a new wife.

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
