Couples Induced to Reproduce

In a PR event to boost their nation's birthrate, the Taiwanese government sponsored a joint wedding on Sunday for ten lucky couples.

At the wedding, under the government officials' witnesses, the ten couples announced that they were willing to cooperatively share the families' responsibilities and take care of their babies together in the future. Then the ten couples walked down the aisle with baby carriages containing their marriage certificates.

In the marriage certificate, each couple promised to have at least two babies. The first baby will be born before the mother reaches 30 years old; and second before the mother turns 35, the certificate states. [Link]
