With Marco Ngai‘s (魏駿傑) marriage breaking down due to his wife’s cheating, it was suspected that the pair’s 20-year-age gap made it difficult to sustain their relationship. Marco’s wife was only a college student when they got married, and as the years went by, they drifted apart.
Aside from Marco, below are three Hong Kong actors who married women who are also two decades younger than them. Some couples made it work, while others couldn’t because of their age gap:
Fifty-five-year-old Lawrence Ng (吳啟華) married Chinese actress Shi Yangzi (石洋子), who is 21 years his junior, in 2007. After 12 months, they welcomed their daughter’s birth and decided to raise their family in Beijing. In 2014, the couple had an amicable divorce and they still take family vacations together.
Yangzi revealed the reason behind the divorce was “due to communication problems because of our [21-year] age gap, but I’ve been constantly trying to overcome it.” Nevertheless, the pair led separate lives four years prior to their divorce decision.
Fifty-four-year-old Aaron Kwok (郭富城) and Chinese model Moka Fang (方媛) got married in 2017. Moka is 22 years younger than the superstar, and Moka’s father even admitted that he also grew up listening to Aaron’s music. Regardless of the public’s opinion, the couple is happily married and has two beautiful daughters, Chantelle and Charlotte.
Aaron loves spoiling his wife like a princess with lavish gifts, even buying 13 pairs of shoes for her in one shopping trip.
Fifty-six-year-old Donnie Yen (甄子丹) married Toronto heiress and beauty queen Cecilia Wang (汪詩詩) in 2003 after dating for three months. Cecilia was only 21 years old and got pregnant, while Donnie was already a divorced father.
Despite this, the couple made their marriage work and Cecilia often accompanies the superstar at promotional events and are not afraid of displaying their love for each other publicly. They have two children, Jasmine and James.
