Fairy tales teach us that there’s always going to be a special someone. They paint pictures of someone who will come into our lives and sweep us off our feet. They teach us about happy endings and ever-afters.
Unfortunately for Chinese internet celebrity Zuo Yueyue (左越越), her marriage has no fairy tale ending. The social media personality recently reported that her husband was cheating on her with another married man. She also discovered she was pregnant with their child. Here’s the kicker, she’s planning on forgiving her husband for her newborn baby!
Yueyue is best known on Weibo, where she has amassed over 27, 000 followers. With her good looks and pleasant personality, it’s no surprise that she has gained favour with netizens. However, while she may have her social media career under control, her marriage is apparently at odds. She announced the good news of her wedding last year on 12th October. Although she posted photos of her husband, she did not mention his name. The duo apparently had a few happy months of marriage, before it fell apart.
On 27th January, Yueyue took to Weibo to air her grievances about her husband. “(We’ve) had countless disputes and countless times of forgiveness,” she wrote. “(Although we’ve) been together for more than a year, (it’s) full of disappointment.” Yueyue explained she had suspected her husband had been cheating on her for a while now. Although she convinced herself they were simply friends, another occurrence proved her wrong. Apparently, her husband was consistently meeting a male blogger from Hangzhou. Yueyue shared that the blogger was already married and had over 8 million followers.
Although she was hurt by his actions, Yueyue later announced that she was giving her husband a chance to fix his mistakes. He had apparently promised to quit dating apps and claimed he would stop meeting the male blogger. “Let’s see if he can do it,” she said. Yueyue added she was forgiving him because she was pregnant and didn’t want the child to grow up without a dad. “I don’t want the child to have (an incomplete) family,” she explained. “The baby is innocent.” Yueyue also asked netizens to forget the issue.
Unfortunately, her request might be hard to fulfill. Netizens are already pointing out that letting the matter pass might not be a good plan. “The child will still know his father is gay when they get older,” one comment read. “Remember to check for HPV after the baby is born,” another advised.
Others wondered if the issue had been scripted and doubted her story. “(Yueyue) once mentioned in a live stream that the two of them haven’t slept together for half a year,” a netizen reminded. “He sleeps with the dog in the living room while (Yueyue) sleeps alone in the bedroom.” There were also netizens curious about the identity of the male blogger. Some have speculated that it’s Weibo blogger Neil Tang (唐梓), based on the information Yueyue shared. However, neither party has confirmed the identity.
Only Yueyue can decide how she wants to solve the issue. However, it may be better for her to seek help for her marriage, rather than sit passively and wait to see what happens. We do hope things work out for her however! Who knows, her husband may just prove us all wrong.
