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. In China, the wedding is a very important day for the bride. Cai Xingju will have to leave her family, and will thus belong to her husband's family. Distress can be read in the glances of the young woman, who has never left her parents. | Location: Wei Ding, Anhui, China.
