The ancient Chinese believed in destiny. At birth, so the legend goes, the gods tie a red string around the ankles of the man and woman who will one day be husband and wife. As the years pass, the string gets shorter and shorter until the two are united. How do you know that you've found your destiny? In China, the parents of the groom wrote the bride's "eight characters"--her year, month, day and hour of birth--on a sheet of paper and placed it on the family altar. If after three days, nothing disastrous happened in the family, such as an illness or a broken vase or dish, the match was approved. The bride's family followed the same rituals. If all went well, the festivities began.
