Fears that an ageing population could be left unable to support itself mean that China's biggest city and financial centre, Shanghai, is overhauling the decades-old One Child Policy and encouraging couples to have a second baby.
Many couples will be excluded from the new diktat, but if both parents were an only child, like most newly-weds in the city, they will be encouraged to conceive again, in an effort to ensure that the city's workforce is not outnumbered by its pensioners.

Lets all put our heads together and come up with a better name than "mail order bride." "BRIDES EXPRESS?" or hmmmmmmmmmm "BRIDES, PACKAGED & DELIVERED." "BRIDES...COD (cash on delivery)."

Even the wheel has a new name/s. But with technology and the progression of time, reinvention is always on the radar.
