China has announced that it is abolishing the one child rule.
On the surface, this 'loosening' of the one-child policy appears to be a significant move, but it is still a long way from complete abolition. Although the policy’s eventual disappearance is inevitable under the pressure of an ageing population, family-planning officials who now have fewer policy violations from which to profit may even be motivated to enforce the remaining rules more harshly in the short term, while many of the intended beneficiaries of this reform were not the ones pressing for permission to have a larger family in the first place.
One of the results from China's 30 year policy of only one child families is, there are apparently 30 million single men in the country that have no prospect of a wife, mainly due to everyone having boys as their child.
This can only end in tears.
