True love brings people together for life, through the good and the bad.
The first few months after the wedding are usually very happy. Newly joined spouses simply can not get enough of each other’s company and love, along with making bold plans for their future together. They count on the fact that they’ll be able to build / buy a house and they look forward to having healthy children.
Life has different plans for us, and not all newlyweds are lucky to live in peace and joy the first few months after marriage. This bad luck touched Zhou Yu’ai and Du Yuanfa from distant China.
Du and Zhou were married in 1959 and were very much in love. The first five months of their life together passed by normally: Zhou was a housewife, and Du went to a neighboring town to work in the coal mine. Unfortunately, something happened later on that no one can explain to this day.
