A woman in Ankang, China divorced her paralyzed husband and remarried his best friend so that they can take care of her ex-husband together.
According to People’s Daily Online, Xie Xiping has been caring for her husband Xu Xihan since he was paralyzed in a mining accident in 2002. Xu was working in a mine in Henan province when a boulder hit him and became paralyzed from the waist down. He was paid 40,000 yuan (£4,137) as compensation. Xu Xihan and Xie Xiping married in 1996 and had a daughter the following year.
Xu was worried when his friends told him that his wife will leave him because of his condition. However, his wife proved them all wrong and insisted to stay and take care of him, along with their children.
Xi Han Tu started telling his wife that she should divorce him and be happy with someone else, saying: “If you do not leave me, I will be with you until the end.”
Xie Xiping decided to divorce her husband and marry his colleague Liu Zongkui. In 2012 she gave birth to a son.
They lived together under one roof despite their confusing arrangement. They’re all happy living together. Xie’s devotion towards his ex-husband is both controversial and amazing which only proves that love knows no boundaries.
