Chinese applicants write a slogan "Mother-in-law is mother" during a recruitment event for 5,000 best men for a grand wedding featuring 10,000 best men and bridesmaids in Chengdu city, southwest China's Sichuan province, 22 May 2016.
A man recruiting 5,000 best men on the streets of Chengdu got people's attention on Sunday (22 May 2016), reported chinanews.com. The man, named Wang Jiang, appeared on the street with a poster. The poster said men who sign up to be a best man at his wedding need to kneel down and write "Mother-in-law is mother" a hundred times. Wang said the writing is a reminder for all the men to not only respect and care about their parents, but also care about their parents-in-laws. Wang, 38, said he has gone through a tough road spending eight years to finally have a spouse. He married in February and planned to have a wedding with over 10,000 people to create a new Guinness World Record. Wang said, "I hope my wedding can be an opportunity for all the best men and bridesmaids who are single to know each other and have chemistry."
