Gallen Lo Reveals Secrets of a Healthy and Happy Marriage
Since finding happiness in his second marriage with mainland actress, Sophie Su (蘇岩), 49-year-old Gallen Lo (羅嘉良) has become more exuberant and expressive. He has simplified the meaning of happiness and realized the secrets to a healthy and happy marriage.
Blissfully in Love
Treasuring the time spent with his wife, Gallen is blissfully married. Gallen and Sophie will tell each other that they love each other every day. “We vowed to continue to be in love all the time!
“My wife and I are very consistent–from the way we look at things, what we buy, and where to travel–we are very consistent. So, in this respect, we are very lucky, Heaven has given us very good conditions. I feel very blessed right now.”
Although he has a calm exterior, there will be issues that make Gallen impatient inside and eager to rattle them off his chest. “My emotions will be quick and impatient; I yearn to discuss the issues clearly. To be honest, slowly I realized this is not a good habit.” He realized the importance of remaining tolerant and calm when issues erupt, to allow his emotions to subside first before dealing with the issues.
Remaining positive in a relationship and cherishing each other were also very important. “We will often praise each other. I don’t think it’s necessary to magnify what you consider to be flaws and to be always thinking about them. You have to see her good traits. We are still two separate people.” Gallen revealed that his wife will dwell on and over-analyze matters more, while he is the more positive one in the marriage.
“I have slowly changed myself. Maybe there is another way to express myself to make the other person feel better. It’s clear that both of us have to continuously improve, whether in our lifestyle, our thoughts, and many other aspects. If we always focus on the negative aspects, then that will not be good.”
Gallen felt open to doing anything in his marriage, as his wife will not exert any control to repress his free will. He felt open to even getting matching leg tattoos with Sophie. “I can break through and do many things, such as getting my ears pierced, she will not control me. As long as my wife likes something, I will like it too,” Gallen spoke about their healthy relationship.
When coming across something Gallen wished to do, he will not repress his desire which makes him become a happier person. However, Gallen admitted that as he aged, the meaning of happiness has become simple for him. “Reaching a certain age, if we can reduce our desires and not add more, we can be much happier. Don’t have too many requirements.”
Baby to Be Born in Hong Kong
Gallen was spotted at the Hong Kong airport with Sophie on November 27. Although Sophie is currently 5 months pregnant, the couple traveled from Beijing to Hong Kong since Gallen will be a guest star at Joseph Koo’s (顧嘉輝) 6-session concert, which will kick start on November 30 at the Hong Kong Coliseum. The last time Gallen was in Hong Kong was in June, when he had attended the elementary school graduation of his son from his first marriage.
The couple was spotted pulling their luggage out of the airport terminal gates. Sophie’s figure had thickened due to her advanced pregnancy. The couple expects the arrival of their baby in May 2013, and will return to Hong Kong to have the baby there.
Gallen and Sophie remain flexible in their baby plans. After the baby arrives, Gallen may take additional time off to spend with his family. “As to whether Sophie will continue to work or not, we are very flexible.” Gallen has reduced his filming projects in recent months considerably since Sophie became pregnant. “Family is very, very important. Work is just one part of our lives.”
