A marriage counseling company in Shanghai is to launch a wifely skills training course in an effort to counterbalance soaring divorce rates.

The course organizer has invited professors from the academy of social sciences, psychologists and sociologists to give lectures on moral ethics and human relations, charm and communication skills. Male elites are also invited to talk about their criteria for an ideal wife.

The first course will be free of charge to its 50 or so participants. In view of enthusiastic community feedback, the organizer is devising other courses on being a good husband and making a marriage work.
