According to the South China Morning Post (SCMP), from 1995 to 2006, Mr. Liang Er (77 years old) and Ms. Lu Honglan (47 years old) living in a poor rural village in Rongxian district gave birth to a total of four children. boys and 11 girls. During that time, China allowed each family to have only one child. Later, due to a record low birth rate and an aging society, China relaxed its family planning policy, encouraging families to have 2-3 children.
According to the latest statement from the local government, the couple did not register their marriage, but they lived together as husband and wife and had children at will.
“The investigation concluded that there was no human trafficking or forced marriage,” the provincial government released a press release after two weeks of investigation. However, the case of Mr. Liang’s family reflects the formal and bureaucratic attitude in government agencies and the neglect of local officials in controlling marriage registration and population management. .
Currently, Mr. Liang’s family lives by farming, receiving government subsidies and donations from benefactors. The family’s children all grow up healthy and have legal identification. Four children have jobs, the rest are going to school.
Earlier, public opinion suspected that Ms. Lu might have been forced to marry and have children after China was shaken by the case of a woman in Jiangsu chained by her husband in a warehouse. That woman gave birth to 8 children and suffered from mental illness. The case has sparked nationwide outrage and once again highlights the problem facing women in rural areas, as well as the bride trafficking. After the investigation, 17 officials in Jiangsu province were dismissed and disciplined.
The incident also prompted China’s Ministry of Public Security to launch a nationwide campaign in early March to check on unidentified women and children, especially those who are homeless or have problems. about mental health.
