Happy Couples Divorcing in China to Get More Land

There's a rush of happy couples filing for quickie divorce in China. Why? It turns out that divorced couples get twice the building plots than married ones:

Under the new build scheme in Guiyang, Guizhou province, southern China, single people are entitled to one building plot each while married couples get just one.

Now officials say more than five hundred couples have filed for quickie divorces so they can get two plots instead of one.

"Me and my husband are very happy. But all of our neighbiours, all of our friends and all of our family have divorced so what can we do?" said newly single Guo Chaoqing, 65.

"If my wife, I, our son and his daughter all get divorced we'll get four plots. We can't get left behind," he added.
