It was a bold move for Matthew and this journey changed his life.
Long-distance relationship is always hard to keep. Since Wang Jia agreed to be Matthew's girlfriend, the message carrying love and care had built an invisible bridge across the Pacific Ocean, between China and America.
They finally got married on January 23, 2013. However, it was never easy for them to step on the red carpet of wedding ceremony, not only for the long distance and time difference, but also for the prejudice. Wang Jia's parents didn't want their daughter to marry a foreigner at first, but the couple never gave up. It was the Matthew love towards Wang Jia and all his efforts that made her parents accept him.
"Why I decided to stay in Chengdu? Because my wife is here," Matthew said.

Their declaration of love:
Even though love sometimes brings you hurt, I still believe in love.
