Fearing that her husband has another woman, the wife ‘goes one step ahead’ by looking for a second wife for her famous husband.
Women are weird sometimes. With marriage, they can do things that are difficult to understand by anyone outside. Nghiem San San’s story is a typical example.
The woman and her husband build a career
Nghiem San San was born into a wealthy family. From a young age, she was loved by her family and raised like a princess.
Growing up, San San married a talented man, Le Dan Vi – 3 years older than her.
When Le Dan Vi met Nghiem San San, he was a young man with ambition, passion and the will to progress. He works as assistant in the film industry. The two sides quickly fell in love and freely married each other. The couple went to Hong Kong, set up a film company and soon achieved success.
Nghiem San San was also facilitated by her husband to become a famous actress. She appeared in her husband’s movies because at that time, the story of women acting in films was beyond imagination. Therefore, Nghiem San San decided to take on the role and immediately became a famous movie star, continuously receiving films.
But it is also because of their career that their marriage appeared cracks.
Nghiem San San is always passionate about building his career to the top. The more famous and talented she is, the more difficult it is to do housework in the house. Filming sometimes forces actors to be away from home. Busy life with movies almost takes up all of San San’s time.
Le Dan Vi is a traditional male model. Many times he wondered about his wife being away from home to film. He even longs for a home where his wife stays at home to take care of everything.
Nghiem San San is smart. She understands these things and is aware of the danger that her husband may marry her and go home at any time.
It was the early 20s, it was common for men to have first wives and concubines. In Hong Kong, this is even more common. Therefore, Nghiem San San personally found a second wife for her husband.
The wife alone persuades her husband to marry 2
It was in 1919, Nghiem San San met 15-year-old Lam So So and liked this girl very much. She started showing the Department of Acting and very quickly, the young girl became famous.
However, no one knew that from the beginning San San wanted Chu Chu to become her husband’s second wife. Simply because she has carefully considered, Chu Chu is very gentle, takes care of the housework, and can cook very well. Moreover, Lam So So is also a traditional model of woman who is loved by everyone.
When he said that intention, Lam Chu Chu was scared after hearing that and refused to agree.
Even the young girl thought that this was Lady Le’s way of challenging her. Normally, men take the initiative to get more wives, but who would bring other wives to “competition” with their husbands.
Lam So Chu is also a rich lady, with countless suitors, why should she go with her husband? When Lam So So’s family knew about it, they objected even more.
It was Nghiem San San who rushed into the “war” to convince everyone. She went to Lam So So’s house to express her wish. It was she who convinced her husband’s family to agree to this idea. At first, everyone thought that Nghiem San San had a problem, but gradually her earnestness made people convinced.
In the end, Nghiem San San gave a drastic reason: After getting married, the eldest and second-grandmothers did not distinguish between high and low in the house. The two will treat each other like sisters.
That sincerity made Lam So So convinced. In the end, the eldest wife Nghiem San San succeeded in finding her husband a second wife who was only 15 years old.
After marriage, the 3 people live together extremely happily. Le Dan Vi and Lam So So quickly got along. She gave birth to her husband 9 more children, making the children of the Le family more and more crowded.
Nghiem San San focuses more on his career without being too busy with family matters. Lam So Chu stayed at home to stay at home and manage family affairs. From time to time, she still participates in acting in a very selective way. All 11 children called them mother and there was no conflict.
The three-person marriage lasted for more than 30 years. From beginning to end, Nghiem San San never felt regret.
It is true that it is rare for anyone to behave like Nghiem San San. In those days, it was common for men to have five wives and seven concubines, but it was really hard to find a wife for a husband like her with your own hands!
