Honeymooning in China

Just learned today from a Chinese colleague about paid honeymoons here in China…

First off, women must be at least 20 years old and men 22 to get married.

If you are at minimum age, by law you get 3 paid days off to honeymoon.

If you are 23 or older you get 10 days.

Added bonus for most likely delaying the production of children.

Population control

Stipulations: These paid days off may only apply to government jobs. Not sure about private companies.

Also, days must be used within a half year or so of marriage date or they disappear.

My colleague & her husband will redeem their 10 at Christmas by expanding our 12 official days to a 22 day Christmas extravaganza in the United States.
