(Scroll down for video) A woman came up with a bizarre plan to test her groom’s love just before the wedding.

The woman caused a very strange scene on a street in Shenzhen, China, when she showed up to take photos before her wedding.

The bride showed up to the photo shoot looking like an old woman. She had her hair sprayed grey and her makeup done in a way that she looked like a 70-year-old woman in an attempt to test the love and commitment of her future husband.

An argument broke out between the bride and groom when the horrified man saw her this way.

Instead of playing along, he angrily told the bride to go home and redo her makeup, witnesses said. However, she refused to do so.

The groom threw his glasses to the floor and stormed off. At that point, the bride still in her wedding gown, sat down crying in the street, surrounded by curious onlookers.

The bride said that she decided to wear this makeup to test if her groom would still be committed to her when she grows old.

44 parents are being punished because their children’s poor school attendance.

Authorities in Jacksonville, Florida, issued arrest warrants for 44 parents in what they call a “truancy sweep.”

So far, sheriff's deputies arrested 18 parents for failing to send their children to school.

Officials said that they are targeting parents of children, who had the highest absentee rates in Duval County.

The State Attorney's Office said that the arrests were done as a last resort to improve the school attendance of children.

Authorities said the children lost a total combined 6,558 days over a three year period.

In one case, a child lost 239 days of school in three years. The child, who is now 9 years old and in the first grade, was detained twice due to excessive absence.

The parents who were arrested, are facing charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and failure to comply with compulsory school attendance laws.

“Truancy sweep is necessary to send a clear message to parents that this behavior is not acceptable. Parents are responsible for the care and welfare of their children, including ensuring the attendance of their children at school,” State Attorney Angela Corey said.

Each warrant carries a $1,500 bond. If found guilty, parents can face up to one year in prison.

If you are in Massachusetts, you can earn money from your bodily functions.

The independent non-profit stool bank called OpenBiome, is offering volunteers $40 for each deposit, and it's all for a good cause.

Stool samples are used to combat the deadly superbug known as C. difficile, which affects more than 500,000 Americans and kills approximately 14,000 per year.

The life saving procedure includes a fecal transplant. The treatment is becoming more popular and people are being invited to donate their poop at the OpenBiome stool bank.

Before this new treatment was created, patients with recurrent episodes of the C. difficile were sick for several months, and had only a 75 percent chance of survival.

Mark Smith, the research director of OpenBiome, said that his company works similar to a blood bank, where donors have to be tested to make sure that are healthy before donating.

OpenBiome also tests people before they donate the fecal matter and then they prepare the fecal matter so it can be used as a cure for C. difficile.
