A Chinese friend of mine works for a German company. The other day she told me that the company’s CEO was a very ‘special’ and ‘busy’ man.
Oh, how is that? I asked
Well, he is a special man because he is 55, married to a German woman who lives back in Germany with their 2 children, meanwhile he is living over here with his Chinese mistress. Apparently the whole company knows about it, but not the wife.
Nice one. (I wouldn't call him 'special though'...)
And how is he busy? I continued.
Well, the same reason, and also, he’s managed to make his mistress pregnant, and she’s keeping the baby. So not only is he busy now, but he is going to be even more busy in 9 months!
Oh, so another one of those mix-and-match-couples that normally consist of an older Western man, and a young, Chinese woman.
I know there are many exceptions, that some of them are very happy, that love has no age and yadi yadi… but seriously… where do you draw the line? Who are all those Western men who come to China, forget about their family and pretend that they are 20 years old again? And who are the young, pretty Chinese women that settle for another woman’s man (or, soon to be leftovers?) Is the taste of money really that good?
I can’t help it, but I have to let it out: Yuuuuuuuuuuk!
