Later, when the meal was ready and the dishes were on the table, her mother walked out of her bedroom and sat on a lounge chair.
“Time to call your two husbands to dinner,” the daughter jokingly said to her mother.
The two men, who had finished their work in the kitchen, then entered the living room, with the family seated around a table and the two sitting next to each other.
The news report didn’t disclose details about the woman’s two marriages. However, it said that the woman and her ex-husband have gone on to start new families that get on well with one another.
The story divided opinions on mainland social media where some people were envious of the family, but some questioned its authenticity.
One person who approved of the family’s dynamic said: “I like the family’s way of building a tolerant relationship, which is better than keeping a toxic attitude.”
Another person commented: “This woman is very smart and wise.”
One person questioned the scene in the video: “Does it really exist? I just can’t understand why and how they can work it out.”
Another person asked: “Is it possible that the woman is still in love with her ex-husband, or vice versa?”
Late last year, the National Bureau of Statistics released data showing that in 2021, there were 2.84 million couples who had divorced in China. The provinces with the most couples filing for divorce were Henan, Sichuan and Shandong.
