Hong Kong actor and martial artist Donnie Yen marked his 12th wedding anniversary to his wife, Cecilia Wang, with a montage of their photos together and a heartfelt Weibo post. “Aug. 30th 2003–2015, 12 years! I can’t describe what you mean to me!” he gushed online. “I’m the most fortunate man! Please let us be together for a hundred years! Mrs Yen, happy 12th anniversary!”
The couple married in 2003 after dating for just three months, and despite a 20-year age difference, they appear still as happy as honeymooners.
Donnie, a well-known family man, often spends lengthy periods of time filming in China, and would display photos of his wife and children everywhere, even calling home three times a day, and spends all his vacation time with his family.
The Ip Man star’s philosophy on how to treat his spouse is exemplified by a quote from the hit movie: “There are no men who fear their wives, only those who respect their wives.”
