'Collective children's weddings' held in kindergarten

(People's Daily Online)

07:44, January 18, 2013


The scene that brides and bridegrooms marched hand in hand onto the stage, exchanged rings and kissed each other to show their love happened in a kindergarten in Zhengzhou, Henan province. Teachers were marriage witnesses, parents were viewers and children who have not even grown permanent teeth were the main roles. According to reports, all of the 100-or-so children joining the collective weddings "married" for "free love."

In the eyes of the Children's weddings planner, it is an education, which is conducive to children's psychological health. It sounds reasonable, but why to use such way to guide children about the sex consciousness? It takes no offense at the professions of love between children. Why to artificially enlarge it through the weddings? In the adult-like ceremony, we see no innocence but embarrassment unsuitable for children.
