In 2011, the couple Guo and Weng broke up because the guy couldn’t pay the wedding challenge. However, 10 years later, they accidentally met and got married.
This fateful story was shared on Douyin by Weng and attracted the Chinese online community, quickly becoming a topic of great interest. Many people liken this couple’s meeting as a “miracle predestined relationship”.
Weng shared that she was very surprised to see her ex-lover who broke up 10 years ago. At this meeting, both were divorced and had their own children. Weng has two children with her previous husband and Guo is also taking care of two children alone.
More than 10 years ago, Weng and Guo met by chance, the two immediately fell in love with each other and quickly became lovers. Guo is the first love of a girl named Weng.

The couple was forced to separate because they did not get consent from adults.
The wedding challenge or “bride price” is a cash amount, including the bride price, that the groom’s family must pay to the bride’s family when they want to marry their daughter back. In China, wedding favors are getting higher and higher due to the large disparity in the sex ratio between men and women. This cause makes it difficult for a large number of young men in the country of billions of people to get married.
A popular Chinese matchmaking website has reported that 80% of single men say the amount of the wedding challenge is too high for them to get married.
In mid-2013, a map of wedding challenge prices in major cities was first published by Sina newspaper. According to the data, Shanghai is the city with the highest amount of money for a wedding. To get a wife in this city, the groom must spend at least 100,000 yuan ($14,900), plus a house.

We tried texting each other to find empathy.” Weng said. 2 people meet in the most difficult times. Weng is in debt, and Guo is unemployed due to a work accident and has to work as a taxi driver.
