To have a child or not? That's the question currently puzzling many young couples in China. The idea of being a DINKY couple, which stands for "double income no kids", may already be common in many others nations, but in China it represents a huge shift. At the same time, the shift has already begun, with a steady growth in the number of urban Chinese DINKs in recent years.
