Combined photo taken on Nov. 20, 2011 shows parents carrying the information about their unmarried children at the People's Park in Shanghai, east China. Every week, hundreds of aged people crammed a special corner of the park, speaking of love and wedding. They attended a blind date event, keeping an eye out for suitable future in-laws, not for themselves, but their children. As more and more unmarried youngsters in Shanghai are too busy to search for their other half, their parents have to take the job to help them in finding the future spouse. Nowadays, more Chinese parents show up in this kind of events on behalf of their unmarried children, which has become a typical phenomenon across the country. (Xinhua Photo)
