The Stairs of Love

Fifty years ago, a 19-year-old Chinese man named Liu fell in love with an older woman, a 29-year-old widow named Xu.

At the time, it was unacceptable for a man to marry an older woman, so the couple eloped and lived in a cave in a mountain.

It was a grueling trip to go up and down the mountain, so for the next fifty years, Liu carved over 6,000 steps by hand so his wife could walk down the mountain more easily!

A half century later in 2001, a group of adventures were exploring the forest, they surprisingly found the elderly couple and the over 6,000 stairs of hand carved ladder.

“My parents loved each other so much, they have lived in seclusion for over 50 years and never been apart a single day.” Liu MingSheng, one of their seven children said, “He hand carved more than 6,000 steps over the years for my mother’s convenience, although she doesn’t go down the mountain that much.”
