Recently, a clip causing a stir on Chinese social networks shows a girl kneeling and begging her boyfriend not to break up. The boyfriend cried while answering: “My mother demanded 300,000 yuan (more than 1 billion VND) for the wedding. I can’t marry you. Please let me go. My parents have suffered a lot!”.
The incident happened in the city of Shenzhen (China). The couple in the clip knew each other through relatives’ introduction. Two tenants live and work in China’s most technologically advanced city. Life is not very rich, but very happy.
Both of their families are not good. They both have the same goal of earning some income to send back to their families and save the rest for their future lives.
Having been together for more than two years, both of them want to go back to the same house. However, things did not go as smoothly as they imagined.
The girl’s parents always urged her to go back to her hometown to have a look. She herself always knew that her family wanted her daughter to marry a rich husband, but she fell in love with a poor son. She dared not tell the truth to her parents. Now that she can’t hide it anymore, she has to speak out her heart just hoping her parents understand and accept her deep love.
Of course, the girl’s parents did not agree. After many pleas and pleas from their daughter, they also accepted to meet the boy once.
In fact, the girl’s parents were very pleased with the boy’s appearance, but when they learned that he was a poor rural man, they immediately changed their attitude. The girl’s mother said: “You can marry my daughter, but you have to meet one condition: You have to prepare 300,000 yuan (more than 1 billion VND) as a bride price. I am not challenging you, just asking for a number. With this money, my family won’t lose face. Moreover, our young son is also getting ready to get married. If I can’t get my daughter’s bride price, where can I get the money to get married? boy?”.
300,000 yuan (more than 1 billion VND) is really too much for the guy. Because he loved his girlfriend so much, he had to choose to pay the price to hope that the wedding gift could be somewhat less. The girl’s mother directly refused: “If you have enough money, get married, if not, don’t dream of marrying my daughter!”
The boy also borrowed to ask relatives and friends, but still could not collect enough money for the wedding as requested by his girlfriend’s family. Faced with this ironic reality, the guy makes a heartbreaking decision: Break up with his girlfriend!
The stirring clip was filmed in the area where the guy’s company works. It is known that he had packed his things at home before, and planned to officially move out after the shift.
The guy sent a break up message to his girlfriend. The girl knew, and immediately ran to her boyfriend’s company. As soon as she saw him appear, she hugged him and cried: “Beg me! Don’t leave me. You discuss more with your family, try it. Let them think of a way for us!”.
The boy could only stand there crying in pain because he didn’t know what to say to make his girlfriend understand his heartache.
The girl suddenly knelt in front of her boyfriend and begged him not to leave. The girl’s actions shocked everyone around her.
The guy pushed his girlfriend away but she didn’t let go. In the end, he just knelt down and said to his girlfriend: “Your mother asked for 300,000 yuan (more than 1 billion VND) for the wedding. I can’t marry you. My parents have suffered a lot. I don’t want to make it difficult for them anymore. You let me go!”
After saying that, the boy turned and walked away, leaving the girl still sitting there crying.
The story of the couple who had to break up because of the above 300,000 yuan (more than 1 billion VND) wedding money has attracted the attention of the online community. Most of the comments expressed sympathy and regret for the beautiful but unsuccessful love.
Besides, many people have criticized the girl’s family. The act of taking a daughter’s wedding money to prepare for a son’s marriage has made the online community even more outraged.
“In what era is there still such a way of thinking? Is this one of the manifestations of respect for men and contempt for women?”.
“The other girl is not right! She couldn’t understand her boyfriend’s suffering. When she got down on her knees and begged, she tried to convince him to go home to negotiate with his parents. It’s really over. This love If there is success, I will not be happy!”.
“If it were me, I would have made the same decision as that brother. If my life is not stable, where can I get so much money? It’s not right to marry someone you love but make your parents miserable. Not to mention, the girl’s parents only love money, but have no sympathy for this brother.”
