China making marriage easier, divorce harder​

After loosening its childbearing policy in June to allow each couple to have as many as three children, up from a previous revision up to two, Beijing is now finalizing plans to promote wedlock to increase babymaking, starting by making marriage easier and cheaper.

A pilot scheme to rectify the “outdated, unwholesome betrothal culture and traditions” and to redress the balance for women is now being implemented in 15 provinces. This comes soon after Chinese President Xi Jinping convened a Communist Party Politburo

at the end of May to discuss family-friendly and procreation policy recommendations.

Xi reportedly frowned upon the exorbitant engagement payments that must be made by a bridegroom’s family to his fiancée as well as the tradition of extravagant wedding dinners and celebrations in rural China that often land newlyweds deep in debt.

@gadgetcool5 bro if I may, I like tell you my story about what a Chinese engagement and wedding is. Its tradition for us Hua Qiao to give an endowment usually by giving a watch (Rolex the prefer brand), wedding ring, a gold pendant, 4 sets of jewelrys ( gold set, diamond set, pearl set with diamond and Sapphire (my wife favorite stone), that is for the engagement and also you had to foot the bill for the ceremony and lunch in an expensive restaurant or hotel. Then the wedding part usually the male pay for the whole cost. Its exorbitant but look at it from my wife perspective, its her dream and those jewelries are an investment. And fortunately for us Chinese our relatives and friend help us financially in our endeavor. Chinese wedding usually generate a profit..hahaha from my side the red pocket I received are able to pay for our wedding cost with money to spare that I gave to my mother as a way of giving thanks, my wife pocketed more than me and she gave half of it to her mother. Overall its great with me spending a huge amount on those jewelries and watches and see them skyrocketed in value.

China to remove fines, revise family planning law to boost birthrate

The country will allow a couple to have three children, and the government will no longer fine couples who have more babies, according to the document released by the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the State Council, the cabinet.

How many children an individual has will no longer be taken into account when he or she registers a household, enrolls in school, or applies for a job, the document said.

Good news, China is gradually moving away from anti-natalism and towards pro-natalism.

Frankly the one child limit should have either never been put in place (two child limit would have sufficed)
or if it WAS necessary, then it should have been put in place for at most one decade, not more.
But the powers that be seemed to desire to wait to see the results of the policy. Which is of course silly, as any result from such policy on the labor force and other social effects takes decades to establish.

The aim of one child policy was not to slow down population growth but decrease it. 1.5 billion was deemed maximum. The Reversal in policy is because GDP may get affected in the future due to more seniors putting pressure on welfare system.

Anyways, 1.4 billion is too much for any country. If China didn't put on OCP, it'd be nearly 1.8 billion in population right now. China has to ensure food security, water security, energy security, housing etc for this booming population lest they live in abject poverty and squalor like in India.

No way, Jose. No way.

China offers baby bonuses, with births on track for new low in 2021​

Half a million low-cost child care places will be added in 150 cities and at least 90 per cent of the children of kindergarten age will have places by 2025. Nursery schools for children under 3 years old will be expanded from 1.8 per 1,000 people to 4.5.

“In the short term, we are hoping to unleash the fertility potential and smooth out the decline in births.

“In the long run, the key is whether these proactive fertility support measures can be implemented well, something that requires the joint efforts and active support of all sectors and parties in all parts of China.”

This is one of the inconvenient facts some of the population dividend proponent keeps on missing. Also, more population means more impact on the climate that the world is already grappling with alarming difficulty.

Some of the proponents or I should say opponents of "One Child Policy" find it so convenient on slogging the policy because of the perceived negative effect it'll do for the Chinese labour work force without ever acknowledging that all these I told you so moment was ever only possible due to the leadership and handling of the economic juggernaut unleashed by the CPC without the careful and objective planning the country as you rightfully pointed out would have been just another messy India. Hindsight is always 20/20 when everything seems clear after the fact which is why it's very important for any country to have a stable and effective governance system run by competent core of leaders otherwise whatever perceive advantage a country has on paper will remain just that, on paper.
