Dicky Cheung’s Long Distance Marriage
Dicky Cheung (張衛健) married his wife Jess Zhang (張茜) in a private ceremony in 2004. Including the time they were dating, they have been together for 18 years. A little known fact is that they live separately in two different cities: Hong Kong and Beijing and have a successful “long-distance” marriage!
Dicky was recently invited as a guest to variety show Familiar Taste <熟悉的味道> and clarified the situation, “The reason why we live separately is because I do not want Jess to give up her life for me. I understand that her mother is mostly based in Beijing, all of her friends are in Beijing, and her life is in Beijing! I don’t want her to give up everything just for me.”
He emphasized that they never spend more than a month apart, and he often flies to Beijing to be with his wife. Their relationship style has worked well because of the trust they place in each other. “Even though we are so far apart, we both know where the other person is and what she is doing for the day.”
The couple talks on the phone often, and they made a promise to never lie to each other which helps strengthen the trust.
Throughout their marriage, there have rarely been rumors of cheating. Even when the paparazzi reported that Dicky had cheated with a news anchor before his marriage, both he and his wife never bothered to comment. Dicky posted a photo of himself and his wife five days later, quietly answering all rumors without words.
