HONG KONG actor Moses Chan has revealed that the secret to a successful marriage is to kiss and hug your wife every day, reported China Press.

“I have always felt that a family needs to be filled with love, which comes from the parents. Only then will the children get to grow up in a home filled with love,” said the father-of-three during an interview.

The 51-year-old, who is married to actress Aimee Chan, claimed they have never had an argument in their nine years of marriage, thanks to proper communication.

“Our values are very similar, so we never argue. Of course, we do have differences of opinion, but we will not say anything to hurt each other. We will first calm ourselves down and try to listen to what the other person thinks before reacting,” he said.

Moses also attributed his harmonious family life to keeping the romance alive between them.

“Husband and wife are one relationship, while parents and children are another. We need to manage them separately and not focus solely on raising children.

“Husbands and wives need to spend time doing things they enjoy ... to keep the passion burning,” he said.

The daily also reported that Aimee, who has taken a hiatus from acting for the past few years to raise a family, will be making a comeback by assuming an action role.

She got injured after enduring a prolonged five-hour training day and now requires a weightlifting belt for support during her workouts.

> Young Chinese nationals who lost their jobs unexpectedly during the pandemic are pretending to go to work so as not to disappoint or embarrass their parents, according to China Press, which reported the findings of a survey by a local newspaper.

One of the youths was Xu Lu (not her real name), who kept her retrenchment a secret from her family members, telling them she wakes at 7am to go to work.

In reality, Xu does not get out of bed until 9am and spends her days studying English and preparing for job interviews.

Zhu Hui from Sichuan province said he had to forego meat to cut costs.

He even had to borrow 500 yuan (RM330) from a cousin to survive the month as he lives alone in the city.

He only told his parents about his experience after securing a new job half a month later.

“Father and mother worry easily,” he said.

According to China’s National Bureau of Statistics, the unemployment rate among youths aged 16 to 24 was 19.9% in July 2022, an increase of 0.6 percentage points from 19.3% in June.

China also reported a record 10.76 million university graduates entering the labour market this year.

The bureau added that the increase in graduates, coupled with a slowdown in the economy following the pandemic, has led to a high youth unemployment rate.
