Lu Songxian and Mai Jingting emerged in prominence in the late 1980s. Songxian, born in 1961, earned fame for his leading role in the film "The Swordsman". Following the film's release, he found himself continuously swarmed by his admirers. Contrarily, Jingting used to be a well-known television presenter from Hong Kong. She ditched her media job to focus on acting and her deep-seated love for Lu. Both have known each other since childhood but kept their relationship a secret due to their status as distant cousins. Their love story unfolds with even more intriguing twists.

The Secret to Their Eternal Youth

Lu Songxian and Mai Jingting started dating in 1994 and took the marital plunge after 14 years. From the onset of their marriage, they concurred on leading a child-free life, mainly due to fear of the scrutiny of their close kinship. Interestingly, this decision has had a noticeable impact on their appearance, as minimizing everyday stress has helped both maintain a smooth, wrinkle-free complexion.

Their perfect image also owes much to their dietary choices. For the past 25 years, Lu Songxian and Mai Jingting have lived a vegetarian lifestyle. The couple firmly believes their seemingly eternal youth is attributed to their meatless eating habit. Even as they reach their retirement age, they still hold the appearances of twenty-something-year-olds. The duo relish every bit of life - traveling, resting, and evading stress. Recently, fans found them at a Buddhist temple, where they learned that the celebrities had many regrets.

Do Lu Songxian and Mai Jingting Long for Parenthood?

Some fans speculate that the couple now regrets their decision not to have children. Songxian's philanthropic pursuits support this speculation, focused on aiding children in China's northwestern regions.
