At the beginning of the founding of the People s Republic, after the adoption of The Marriage Law, women s demand for marriage based on love met with fierce resistance of the traditional feudal family systems, resulting in thousands of women committing suicide or being killed.

This moreover has laid a foundation for the establishment of new marriage and family relations based on socialist principles.
