A newlywed couple have recently gone viral around China. Meet Emilie from France and Xie Donglin from Suzhou, China.

Emilie came to China as an exchange student to study at Fudan University three years ago. She is fluent in Chinese as well as six other languages. In March of 2015, Emilie started an internship at a hotel in Suzhou. At the same time, Xie was working as a golf coach at the golf club right below the hotel. Emilie asked for Xie’s contact information at their first meeting. They started dating after Emilie broke the ice and told Xie she liked him. “Because my internship only lasts for three months, I couldn’t wait any longer to tell him. If he did not feel the same way, I would go back to France and probably never come to China again,” explained Emilie.

Xie and Emilie registered for marriage on January 4, 2016, and had their wedding on April 9. Emilie says she does not need an apartment or a car to be married to Xie, as long as the two love each other. Emilie’s only request was to have a cat after they got married.

Now the three of them are living happily together in Suzhou, waiting to move into a new apartment.
