Q: What happens if you have twins in China?

Do you have to make a payment due to the one child policy?

Nope. You are considered very lucky as it is one of the ways that you can have more than one child under the policy.

It's a huge market for fertility drugs that promote multiple births, it's the free parking of the one child policy.

My wife has a twin. It was hard slogging for them. They were born the year the policy took effect, but the problem was the rationing system made no consideration for twins. So, she had to split her food rations with her sister. She still thinks it's why she's so short, malnourishment as a youngster.

I would say that the "one child policy" is rather "elastic" and accomodates many things thru either not addressing them, or by being a bit vague sometimes.
One that puzzles me is that if a Chinese man and a woman marries, and have a girl as a child, and they get divorced and marry someone else later, they can legally have another child because it seems it is a "one child per marriage" the current interpretation. 
I have never seen a couple fined for having more than one, but have heard of a few cases in local news, and by word of mouth.  Some had small problems registring more than one child for school.

Probably any other thing just as if it happened somewhere else. If you have a twin it's two mouths to feed, two diapers to change, two babies to burp and two babies to love. If your a foreigner and have twins not much anybody can do about it. Ask PrettyNyssa she just had twins.

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
