Anita Yuen Will Not Tolerate Cheating in Marriage
The biggest scandals of the year have all been cheating scandals so far—first with Andy Zhang (張丹峰), and then with Andy Hui (許志安) and Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎). While Andy and his wife Catherine Hung (洪欣) have yet to make statements on their issues, related parties of the “Sum On Incident” have already stated their opinions. Jacqueline’s boyfriend Kenneth Ma (馬國明) has urged the media to go easy on Jacqueline, while Sammi Cheng (鄭秀文) has released an official statement saying that she will stand by her husband, expressing that mistakes and forgiveness comes with marriage.
As expected, Sammi’s decision has sparked controversial reactions. After all, there is no same universal belief on what marriage actually entails. And while Sammi may choose to tolerate mistakes like cheating in marriage, Anita Yuen (袁詠儀) will not.
Appearing in a new episode of the Chinese travel show Viva La Romance <妻子的浪漫旅行>, Anita shared her thoughts about extramarital affairs, and impressed viewers with her straightforward, cutthroat response.
“It really is difficult to say,” said Anita. “Of course [with relationships] there is no guarantee that you’ll be together to old age, because how can you predict that? But I will always tell my husband that I can never be the last one to know [about infidelity]. And if that ever happens, everything that you’ve once owned would now belong to me. Why? Because you committing infidelity means that you’re ready to move on from this family. This family is no longer your priority anymore. You are willing to give up everything, from our love, to our children, or even our wealth. If you can do that, then leave. There’s no point of forcing you stay with me. We’ll all just suffer.”
Anita’s husband, Chilam Cheung (張智霖), agrees with her thoughts. He shared, “We all have the power to do whatever we want, and that includes infidelity. But be responsible about it. It works both ways.”
