One part of the largest human migration event on the planet that takes place during Chinese New Year is for millions of Chinese to go "home" for the holiday to see their families.  For young women, the parents are hopeful that their daughters have found a potential husband.  For those who don't have that special someone yet, they can rent a fake boyfriend to take with them to meet the folks.

China has a huge population but it has a horrible life style. It's really bad when people have to protest for human rights. Even though their economy has boosted their pollution problems are unexceptable.

China's huge population growth isn't necessarily such a good thing because most of the new population is males because parents want males so they can have more workers after they get married but its harder to get married because there is less and less girls in China's population.
