Thread: Chen Hong broke up with Gao Ling

I don't know what is the "real" reasons behind this or how long or how "serious" a relationship they had, but totally agree and disagree to a certain extent with above post. I also think part of the decision came from Gao Ling and to a certain extent CH.
Disagree cos I do not think this is an "Asian" only mindset or culture. I'm sure there are other European, MiddleEast, or American mindset which have the same view.
However, what i agree on is, that parents should not get involve or interfere with whatever their child's decision. Like some of the posters here also mentioned, parents are not always right NOR alway wrong. They can give advice, but IMO, the final decision should be on their child. Esp. if their child is already old enough to make a decision and support him or herself.
On that note, this is just my hunch, could be totally wrong, but the reason is one that is quite common. Now, i don't know how far did CH pursued his education, but my guess is they disapprove of the relationship going any further because CH is an athlete; not some professional, career person(ie. doctor, engineer, lawyer etc.). I'm sure the parents also thought abt the future of their daughter. And both of them are not getting younger either(esp. Gao Ling)..

Must be so hard for Chen Hong and Gao Ling.
I can also see from her parent's side. Every parent want the best for their child. An athelete in China gets paid extremely little even if you are Chen Hong or Lin Dan. The most money they make is probably any endorsements they get, but they won't get that much because badminton isn't really THAT popular in china. (At least not compared to soccer and basketball, not even close.)
The saddest thing is that, if Chen Hong was a top tennis player in anywhere but China, he could literally go pick up any girl he wanted. A title like the AE2005 could have racked up a million US dollars in tennis and he would never have to work another day in his life as long as he stayed in China. It's just unfortunate he's born in a country where even a succesful athelete gets paid close to nothing and a sport that isn't as filthy rich.
