noon on November 26, 2013, lunch Liu Liu Hui came to the former husband's home to look after his ex mentally ill mother. The only requirement for Liu Hui's blind date is to take care of patients together in order to take care of the three families of the ex husband with mental illness.
last November 26th, Liu Hui was telling his family story.
Liu Hui (43 years old)
Changping full well West Village,
open the rental house gate, left to the north, through a small alley, Liu Hui to a row of flat houses called "Lao Niang, Lao Niang".
no one promised in the house. Liu Hui went straight into the inner room to greet a haired wife in the bed.
"mother, did you eat it?" Less pumping. " The old mother-in-law did not answer, and laughed at her. Liu Hui began to clean up the cigarette butts and told her some details of life.
here was Liu Hui's home. The old woman was her former mother-in-law, suffering from mental illness for many years. She had been taken care of by Liu Hui for five years. They were also taken care of by ex husband and former brother-in-law, who were all suffering from mental illness.
to take care of three patients, and to make money for children to go to school, in other people's persuasion, Liu Hui promised to go to a blind date, but the only condition of her relative is to be able to take care of the former husband and the family.
she will take her husband's family of three to get married.
for the first time to his former husband's home, Liu Hui ran to the village beside the river and cried all afternoon.
"their families are not poor, they are too poor." In November 26, 2013, in a rental house in the West Village of Manjing, Changping, Liu Hui recalled the first time he entered the old husband's house. The whole family was two rooms, and the radle was crumbling. His father poured wine on the side of his wine bottle and stood up to give up his seat, but found that there was no place to sit in the whole house. Lying down, his mother began to curse when the stranger came in.
Liu Hui's hometown in Hunan Yueyang. She is the youngest child in the family. She can eat and eat in his home, but in order to prove that she can eat his own life, in 1991, she chose to work in the north.
"when he was in love, he was always riding a bicycle for more than an hour to see me, give me a meal, chat with me, and it was really touched at that time." Because of this, Liu Hui decided to face up to Zhang's poverty.
in 1994, Liu Hui took the marriage certificate with his family and Lao Zhang. In order to save money, the two people rented outside the house is not better than the home, the days are becoming more and more embarrassing, the two people are the most difficult time, rented in a non - electricity warehouse, a candle every night, even a packet of salt can not afford.
the embarrassment of life exacerbated the two people's contradictions in life. In 1996, Liu Hui was pregnant, lost one of the financial sources, and the burden of life fell to the old Zhang, his temper was gradually irritable, and he began to drink, and when he quarreled with Liu Hui, he showed a violent tendency.
in order not to affect the children in the stomach, Liu Hui had to return to Hunan's maiden home to keep her fetus, and she stayed in her home for two years under the stay of her maiden.
by the time she returned to Beijing in 1998, Lao Zhang began to drink a lot, and people became suspicious. "As long as I talk to strangers, he must ask for a half day and finally get to the start." After
encountered many times of violence, Liu Hui began to feel disheartened about Lao Zhang and Lao Zhang was also diagnosed as intermittent psychosis. In 2001, when Lao Zhang sober up, she proposed a divorce petition with her daughter, and the old man, who was getting heavier, agreed.
in order to feed children, she went to the square to sell mineral water and put up a stall in the rental area. Finally, she decided to go back to the village and open a sales department. The good neighbourhood gave her money. When she first opened, almost all her family belonged to her neighbors and relatives.
get up at five every morning and cook for your daughter. When your daughter eats well, she will go shopping, and the seven or eight will be open until eleven in the evening. Though hard, Liu Hui's income began to balance herself and her daughter's life.
but it didn't last long, because every time the ex husband fell ill, he ran to the snack shop to make trouble. He often hit Liu Hui's face and then ran away with a pile of merchandise. Liu Hui said so many times that he wanted to die, but he saw his daughter and hid his thoughts.
go home as a former wife "home"
with the aggravation of the old Zhang's condition, Zhang's situation is getting worse and worse. Zhang's father died of liver poisoning soon. Soon, the old brother was diagnosed with intermittent psychosis, and a three mental patient was maintained only by a meager mother's pension. .
in 2008, Zhang's three had been sent to the psychiatric hospital for treatment. The three were obviously better, but Lao Zhang was still drinking after being discharged from the hospital.
62 - year - old retired worker Wang Jingyuan recalls that after witnessing a quarrel between Lao Zhang and the man, he chopped the knife to a man, and he would come to the village branch to cut down.
the worsening situation of the former husband's home Liu Hui looked in his eyes and was in his heart. "Others say, we have been divorced for many years, and his family has nothing to do with me, but is it true?" He has always been my daughter's father. We have no feelings and family ties. "
Liu Hui finally made a fool's decision. In 2009, she returned home for eight years as a ex-wife. She wanted her efforts to support the coming home.
Liu Hui took out the money he made for these years, and borrowed more than ten thousand yuan from his relatives and friends, and began to cover his former husband's house. After half a year, more than 20 rooms were covered, including a three storey building and four flat houses.
"give my ex husband, my mother-in-law and my uncle a room, and I rent out all the other rooms." Liu Hui said. But Lao Zhang's condition became more and more serious. Liu Hui sent his ex husband to a mental hospital and paid medical expenses to his ex husband with the rent of the house.
the only condition of matchmaking
for a long time to live, and the 43 year old Liu Hui has become more and more aware of the need for a warm person.
"once I was sick, lying in bed all day, unable to climb up, even a person who cooks for me."
in November 26, 2013, in the rental house of more than a hundred meters from Liu Hui's former husband's home, and talking about the combination of Liu Hui, Lao Wu was not worried about taking care of it.
"she can do it all by herself. If I help her, will she be more relaxed?" The 5 man, a 5 - day man who had suffered a marriage setback, was very moved after understanding the experience of the two people. Soon after the two people met, they used their own savings to help the former husband to build a house of fifty thousand yuan.
in November 2012, at a Hubei TV program recording scene, Liu Hui put on the wedding dress that the program group prepared for her, and asked Lao Wu to marry him in front of the audience. Before the camera, the two people wept.

the joy of marriage soon was broken by the rumors in the village, "someone said that Lao Wu was coming to my ex husband's house. "." Liu Hui was speechless. In order to prove her true thoughts, she came to the village committee, specially set up a written evidence, and made sure that she had no ownership of the building.
"I just want to tell everyone that it is my willingness to take care of their family, and nothing to do with it."
every other week, Liu Hui will go to the hospital to give his ex husband some laundry, every day, she and the old Wu Hui three times to the former mother-in-law's home to help clean up, the former mother-in-law and the young uncle will not use electrical appliances, can only burn coal, but also afraid of gas poisoning, so often have to watch.
today, Liu Hui's cell phone also keeps a picture of a hospital visiting his ex - husband, a high nose, wide lips, a round face, and some broken incisors that fail to cover up his face with a full smile.
for so many years, I realize a word: people, as long as you are good to him, no matter who he is, will be moved. Liu Hui
