Eighteen couples celebrated a group wedding on a warship at a military harbor in Qingdao, Shandong province on Monday. The bridegrooms are serving members of the North Sea Fleet of the Chinese People's Liberation Army Navy who are poised to embark on a long journey of escort assignments in the Gulf of Aden. They had intended to delay their nuptials until the end of the mission, but fleet commanding officers decided to hold a group ceremony for them.
