A WOMAN'S APPLICATION for ten-day family reunion leave to travel from Jinan, Shandong province, to visit her husband in the Tibet autonomous region has gone viral as the woman claimed "she has almost forgotten how he looks". Comments:

The number of employees who are separated from their spouses and children and do not see them for a long time because of work is more than people might think. Therefore, given the long separations between couples and its effect on their relationships, no wonder people have been moved by this woman's application. In 1981, the State Council granted domestic workers paid leave to visit their families once a year if they live far from their parents or spouses. The sorry state of this woman and millions of families experiencing similar situations could have been avoided if this regulation was properly implemented.
