On the Plane

“My husband spent 8 years waiting for me. I met him while working in America after I finished my masters in my earlier years. It wasn’t really a good time since I didn’t have American residency and that my family was against me dating a white guy (they wanted her to date and marry Chinese) back then. But my husband was persistent. I had to go back to China during my period of job vacancy after my first internship had ended. I’ll be honest with you, normal people would just breakup if that’s the case., but he didn’t. For 8 years, he would fly to China, 2 to 3 times per year, just to see me. Eventually his persistence moved my family, and that’s how we wedded.”

“In your opinion, what’s the most important factor that kept your relationship going when you guys were split up for that long ?”

“Understanding. I have understood his love, and he has done the same.”
