Despite a promising start to his career as part of the popular Hong Kong boyband BOY’Z alongside Kenny Kwan (關智斌), Steven Cheung’s (張致恆) reputation has plunged considerably in recent years. In addition to racking up debt and borrowing excessively from friends, Steven was also ridiculed for his infidelity and cheating scandals.
In 2019, Steven wed his fan Au Yin Man (區燕雯) when she got pregnant. Although many believed that Steven would turn a new leaf after settling down, the 38-year-old continues to be surrounded by negative publicity. Financial debts continued to plague the family of five, with Man Man choosing to forgive Steven numerous times throughout their three-year marriage.
In the beginning of the year, Man Man announced her intentions to separate. When she became accidentally pregnant again, she gave Steven a second chance. Twelve months later, the couple has hit another bottleneck in their marriage, which Man Man describes as intolerable.
“Pretend that I have a mental issue. Pretend that I am making up stories. Pretend that I have psychological problems. However, I can definitively say that I have reached my limit. Everything has surpassed my boundaries and bottom line. There’s no need to guess. It has nothing to do with another woman or other women. It’s simple. Our personalities do not mesh. We cannot communicate or tolerate.
“I grew up in a single-parent household. I thought that if I persisted and worked hard, I can provide my children with a nuclear family home. However, some things really can’t be forced. It can be so tiring just seeing one another every day. Right now, we are preparing everything. At the start of the 2023 new year, I can definitely go back to being myself again and have a new start. Everyone will probably say that I deserve this, that I chose the wrong person, that I stubbornly chose to try it out.”
Although Man Man is known to take her grievances on social media, is this really the final straw in their marriage?
