Xu was working for a mining company in the province of Henan when a boulder hit him and paralyzed him from the waist down. The company paid him 40,000 Yuan as compensation for his lifelong disability.
Xu became worried that his wife would leave him because of his paralysis. Xie proved that she really loved Xu as she insisted on staying with him to take care of him and their kids.
However, Xu felt that his loving wife deserved a better life with somebody else and insisted that she divorce him. “If you do not leave me, I will be with you until the end,” the husband said.
In 2009, Xie finally agreed to divorce Xu and marry his best friend Liu.
It turned out that the woman agreed to divorce Xu and marry Liu so that they could take care of the paralyzed ex-husband together. In 2012, Xie and Liu had a son together.
The family of six are now living peacefully together under one roof. Despite their strange and confusing family arrangement, the members say that they are all very happy.
Many people from the online community think that Xie did not need to marry someone else to get help in taking care of Xu while others say that they admire Xie’s devotion to her paralyzed ex-husband.
