(CGTN) When people get married, they receive blessings from families and friends. But if there is a large age or cultural gap between the two, they may receive a lot of questions.

That’s exactly what happened to 43-year-old Zou Qianshun from northeast China and his 27-year-old wife Sandra from Cameroon when they got married in 2017.

The new environment would bring challenges for Sandra. Would she be able to cope with being so far away from her hometown and how would she handle the cold weather in northeastern China?
