China - Economy - A Migrant Story - Wedding

To celebrate his son's wedding, Ding Zhifa's father, a 70-year-old farmer, poses with his chidren and grandchildren. Health problems keep him from working, but his children, who all work in the large cities, provide for him. On February 25, 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.
