|The mother and son|
A son desperately wanted to keep the peace between the two most important women in his life, but they did not get along.
The man of Sichuan, China, managed to avoid confrontation by secretly taking care of his mother for nine years without telling his wife.
Liu Xiangli has eight siblings, but he inherited the largest portion of his family's wealth and he was able to buy his family a home.
He was hoping to bring his widowed mother to live with him and his wife Zhao Zongcui, but his wife refused to entertain the possibility of living with her mother-in-law.
After three years, Xiangli finally decided to bring his mother to his home despite his wife’s disapproval. He hoped that the two women would get along well.
However, that did not happen. Xiangli said that within a week, a fight broke out between the two women and it became so bad that his wife threatened to commit suicide if his mother did not leave.
Xiangli then rented a home for his mother in his hometown, without telling his wife. He paid all of her bills and he made sure she had everything she needed.
Xiangli did not tell his wife about the arrangements and she assumed that her mother-in-law moved back to her hometown.
This remained a secret between the mother and son for nine years. However, recently, the two women bumped into each other at a market and the secret was exposed.
Zongcui said that she was shocked and angry that her husband hid this secret from her for nearly a decade.
However, while she is still not happy about the situation, seeing her husband's dedication and commitment to his mother, Zongcui agreed to help take care of the elderly woman.
