Sammi Cheng Chooses to Forgive Husband’s Cheating
Andy Hui (許志安) and Jacqueline Wong’s (黃心穎) cheating scandal has taken Hong Kong by storm, making headlines beyond the entertainment columns. Andy, Jacqueline, and even Jacqueline’s boyfriend Kenneth Ma (馬國明) have all made apologies and statements, with the exception of the scandal’s biggest victim, Andy’s wife Sammi Cheng (鄭秀文), who had stayed silent throughout the debacle, until now.
On Thursday, three days after the scandal broke out, Sammi finally broke the silence with a statement released on Instagram. Fans have been worried for the Cantopop queen, who has a history of depression. She had an on-again, off-again relationship with Andy for years before they finally married in 2013.
Sammi, a Christian, shared a biblical quote from the book of Corinthians: “Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” In her statement, Sammi said she has chosen to forgive her husband, and that this incident had been an “important lesson” in their marriage.
Her statement is as follows:
“This [incident] was an important lesson in our marriage. We’ve experienced many emotional ups and downs together during this time, and we have also communicated about this incident very deeply. This is a lesson for us as husband and wife, and it will continue to be a lesson to learn from in the future of our marriage. In marriage, not only can we give each other happiness and warmth, there is also a place for mistakes and forgiveness. No one is flawless. That saying may be old, but it is true.
“The most important thing is that [we have] taken a step deeper into understanding and experiencing the true essence of marriage. True happiness isn’t about being satisfied all the time. There will be tests. There will be a time when we have to experience highs and lows so we can be more emotionally connected, to be able to enter each other’s innermost feelings, to envisage our individual weaknesses together, to not give up on yourself, to not give up on each other, to correct each other, to advise each other. In this ongoing journey on learning about marriage, I strongly believe that experience and lessons will bring us back on the right track, our lives reborn.
“In this difficult time, I hope we will hold our hands together and pray. It will help us greatly. Today, the heavy burden on my shoulder has lessened quite a bit. I just hope that everything will calm down soon, bringing back peace. Finally, I respectfully ask the media to stop chasing after my aging parents. I have nothing more to say. From today onwards, I will only look forward. Time will tell. We will walk forward one step at a time.”
