Li Chenxi (27) is trying to avoid the disparaging title of "sheng nu," or "leftover woman," so she rented a boyfriend to bring home to her family for Chinese New Year.

Every Chinese New Year is basically one large family reunion and Li Chenxi is trying to avoid the inevitable questions of why she'll be alone forever. There's a major stigma in China, a culture that often attaches unflattering labels to the unmarried, so the pressure is on.

Watch how Li Chenxi picks out a boyfriend named Sean (24) and then tries to convince her family that the two are in love.

*Renting a BF is $150, with an extra charge for a kiss and a cuddle.

"Lying in a hospital bed having found out he was paralyzed Chris Palmer thought about how he never would be able to walk his daughter down the aisle on her wedding day. But on Saturday (21/5), almost four years later, Mr Palmer has done just that. With the help of a £90,000 robotic device, the 55-year-old father walked down the aisle, alongside his daughter Heather handing her over to her fiancé Christopher Halls. "It's wonderful I can do this – it's fulfilling something that dads do," said Mr Palmer, who was told he would never be able to walk again in June 2012 after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer.

"When I lay in hospital after the operation, one of the first things I thought about was my daughter's wedding and how I wasn't going to be able to walk her down the aisle." But then about a year ago, Heather, spotted an article about a company called Rex Bionics which gave her hope. The company has invented an exo-skeletal suit called Rex which enables paralyzed people to walk and stand without assistance. Heather got in touch with Rex Bionics and Chris was given an opportunity to try out the equipment."

Monica was 16 when she gave birth to Caleb and gave him up for adoption. It wasn't until last year that the two reconnected through Facebook.
