In order to cope with the strong demand, marriage registration offices opened an hour earlier, put more employees on for the day and canceled lunch breaks, the newspaper said.

The Wuhan Civil Affairs Bureau in Hubei province told China Daily that marriage registration offices in the city made greater efforts to meet demand and did not limit the number of marriage registrations on Tuesday.

However, the bureau called on couples to refrain from all trying to get married on Tuesday and to follow COVID-19 epidemic containment measures. As long as couples work together and respect each other, any date is a good date to get married, a bureau official told China Daily.

Guo Mingming and Ou Bowen received their marriage license at Beijing's Fengtai district marriage registration office during their lunch break on Tuesday.

"We waited in line for more than an hour, but it's worthwhile because a special date adds to the significance of the occasion and we would have a unique date for the wedding anniversary," they said.
