The life described in this artcile is the reality. Most Chinese immigrants need to overcome the langauge barrier, culture shock, and financial pressure. Under such a circumstance, the marriage becomes so fragile...If our memory works correctly, I think many of us can remember the strategy that took place in Toronto sometime earlier this year, in which a desparate father killed his 4-year-old daughter.
Reading such articles always makes me dummy. If anybody wants to look into the life through literature, I recommend a novel entiled "Bai Xue Hong Cheng". It appeared at www.fhy.net as special issues in 1997.
In that story, "I"-- the author---made $50K ,
devorced his wife, abandoned his lover, and went back to China. The most touching description is on the farewell with his already-divorced wife: He saw the wrinkles around her eyes....
I am not spreading pessimitism. Instead, I wish to say: Be considerate, people!
