China - Economy - A Migrant Story - Wedding

Ding Zhifa and Cai Xingju wed in Wei Ding, a village of 400 inhabitants located 150 kilometers from Hefei, capital of the Anhui province. The couple met only once in 2005, by way of a meiren, or a go-between. Ding Zhifa, 25, was advised of the imminence of the wedding by phone, while he was working on a construction site in Beijing. His father met with Cai Xingju, a 24-year-old woman from the neighboring village, for him. After the two families came to an agreement, the wedding was fixed for the zheng yue 28. In the lunar calendar, this day is a good omen. It is the first month of the calendar and the number 28 is traditionally a sigh of fortune. For the wedding, Cai Xingju rented in Hefei the two dresses necessary for the ceremony, one white, the other red. | Location: Wei Ding, Anhui, China.
