There are several signs which indicate a marriage is going well. So, in absence of any of these signs, most people would assume the marriage is not going well.
Malaysian singer-songwriter Gary Chaw (Cao Ge, 曹格) has been happily married to his wife Wu Sou Ling (吳速玲) for 13 years. However, fans suspected them of separating when they were seen living apart from one another.
Chaw has been living with his family in Taiwan for a few years now. Most assumed that the couple were living together with their two children, however, paparazzi proved otherwise. On 14th June, Wu was seen driving her daughter somewhere in a luxury car. It was assumed that she had been caught mid-journey.
Wu apparently drove her daughter to Neihu, where Chaw’s mansion was. She dropped her daughter at the house and only stayed for 10 minutes before leaving again. This time, she was alone as she returned to her new house in Tianmu. From the photos, it seemed as though Wu and Chaw were not living together in the same house.
Chaw’s agent was quick to address the matter. He explained that Chaw had recently rescued a stray dog and was keeping it in his studio in Neihu. This was because the dog needed attention and care. “(Chaw) happened to be writing songs for (his) new album so (he) often stays in the studio,” the agent clarified.
Apparently, the singer-songwriter spends the night at the studio if he’s working so he doesn’t disturb the family while they sleep. “(Chaw’s) wife and children occasionally deliver meals and accompany him,” Chaw’s agent shared. Wu’s agent added that the couple’s marital status was “very good”!
Although they may be staying in different houses, Chaw’s reasoning is sound. Sometimes, artists need space to create and ensure they aren’t disturbing their loved ones.
For Chaw, living apart is a form of love. We hope the couple continues their happily married life. They certainly seem to have everything sorted.
