China: Agents, parents get in on ‘rent-a-girlfriend’ game...

China's recent rent-a-girlfriend trend has helped bachelors avoid mounting pressure to marry by hiring strangers as stand-ins for pushy parents.

But this year, business is booming, with more agencies offer the services as high demand drives up prices ahead of Spring Festival.

What's more, parents seeking to cash in on the trend are helping their daughters hook up with agents and those looking to deceive their families.

Young women are charging an average 3,ooo yuan ($500) for a 2 day-1 night stint as a stand-in significant other, according to listings on e-commerce site Taobao.

Legitimate matchmaking agencies have entered the game, and have strict rules for renters, with rates starting at 1,000 yuan a day. Full story...
