Ain’t love grand? Xinhua reports that this month a Malaysian woman, Yan Shuying married Li Kangyu — a semi-paralysed man from Hebei province — after the two met and fell in love online.
Due to rheumatoid arthritis, Li, 38, has been confined to bed for 31 years. Most parts of his body have degenerated, and he is unable to sit up.
He was educated at home by his father, and learned to use the Internet with the help of friends. Despite his physical disability, Li is an optimist. This is what first attracted Yan to him.
She lived in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, when they first made contact online in 2011. Months later, Yan told Li that she was in love with him. “I was very nervous when I told him I loved him. He cannot walk, but he is knowledgeable about history, geology and current affairs. He is smarter than many.”
Yan visited Li five months after they met online. “I felt so excited and so happy the first time I met him. His physical condition was worse than I expected, but he was living a happy life,” said Yan.
For her husband, Yan is an angel. “She’s a kind-hearted girl, and that’s the most beautiful thing about her,” said Li.
After two years of online dating, they decided to marry.
Good for them.
