That’s right, a group wedding for kindergarten kids, not their teachers. Before dive in, keep in mind that this is a country where over 79% of the people choose the Internet as their channel for sex education, where real couples failed to conceive because the husband mistook his wife’s navel for vagina for years, where parents told their kids that they were picked up in dumpsters instead of the result of sex.

On Jan 11, 2013, a kindergarten in Zhenzhou held a “group wedding” for over 100 preschool kids. The group wedding had all the necessary procedures of a real adult wedding.

Little grooms knelt down to wear rings for their little brides.

Showered with blessings from their teachers and parents, the little couples were asked to walk through a “rainbow door” hand in hand. Each would need to pose under the “rainbow door” with one “intimate” posture. Hugs and kisses were allowed.

One parent commented: “This is good. My kid, by staying at this kindergarten, understands much more than kids at other kindergartens. To let them have a taste of a wedding can reduce their curiosity. It’s good education. I fully support it [holding group wedding].”

According to Li, head of the kindergarten, many kids of age 3 to 6 started to grow sensitive about marriage. For example, boys would say “I like you” to girls. Girls would buy candies for boys that they like. Some kids would even mention “getting married.” The “group wedding” activity was to teach the kids a healthy view of marriage.

This was not the first time that this kindergarten held group wedding for kids, but it was the largest in scale. Based on past experiences, “married” kids were more responsible, more confident and got along better with others.
