Every couple promises on their wedding day to love each other forever, in sickness and in health. But for this couple in China, sickness came relatively quickly.
Du Yuanfa married Zhou Yu’ai 56 years ago. When an illness she contracted just one month into their marriage left her paralyzed, Du gave up everything just to care for her — and he hasn’t stopped since.
Every day, Du sweetly checks Zhou’s forehead with his cheek to make sure she’s not feverish.
He’s been caring for her since she first fell ill 56 years ago.
When she first became sick just one month into their marriage, Du promised he would take care of Zhou forever.
He quit his job to fully care for her and do things around the house.
The most amazing part their relationship is how Du always tends to his wife with a smile on his face.
Neighbors from their village are always stopping by to help the couple with repairs around the house.
They even bring gifts of clothing, food, and medicine.
The power of Du’s love for his wife didn’t just change their lives — it changed the entire village. Inspired by Du’s dedication to Zhou, his neighbors are stepping up to take care of each other.
