Nu Wa and Fu Xi were twins who are considered the first humans in Chinese mythology. They were the only survivors of a horrible flood. They realized everything was destroyed. The duo wanted to get married, but were very ashamed, even though the world was unpopulated. They went up to Kunlun Shan and prayed to the heavens asking for permission to marry, and if they were allowed to, to shroud them in mist. They were given permission and surrounded in mist. In Traditional China, they considered this to be the beginning of marriage customs.
