A young couple crosses Dongzhimen Nei Dajie (Inner Street) heading south to Dongsi Bei Dajie (North St.) near the Beixinqiao Station, past a man on a bicycle using a mobile phone, in Beijing, People's Republic of China 23 June 2013. Modern courting is still very traditional with three dates generally confirming an intention to marry. An updated twist is the man carrying the women's purse when out. (Gerard Burkhart Photo)
