By Li Jun (Shanghai Daily)

A couple who got married after only 10 minutes of online chat broke up eight months later, Chongqing Economic Time reported today.

Jin Qiying, a farmer in Heilongjiang Province, divorced his wife surnamed Zhang from Chongqing, as they constantly quarreled over trivia matters in daily life.

Zhang who is from a big city could not stand living in the countryside with Jin and was on bad terms with her mother-in-law. While Jin complained that Zhang was lazy and squandered their money.

Last February Jin drove a used van on a journey to look for his soul mate. He traveled to more than 260 cities and shouted out for his love in public squares. Moved by Jin's story, Zhang had an online video chat with him and the two decided to tie the knot 10 minutes later.
