Love in China

A friend sent me this story, and I thought it was so nice that I wanted to blog about it. This is an amazing love story about a couple who wanted to be married, but because she was older, it wasn't socially acceptable. So they hid in a cave in the mountain and lived their life together there. The husband carved 6000 steps in to the side of the mountain so that his wife could come and go easily. This story won China's "love story of the year" award.

That was a cute story....I wish they had pictures of when they were young, too.

I think going up and down the stairs is what killed him at 70, though. :0)

It is a wonderful story. Thanks for sharing. It is sad that society forced them to live like that though.

I absolutely loved this story and I went to the website and watched the video, even though it was in Chinese. Thanks for posting!
