- A Chinese man, Clarence Tan, has won the hearts of many following his unique love story
- Tan defied all odds to marry his Ghanaian lover, Edna Sophia
- He has opened up about how he had to convince his parents before they blessed the marriage
A Chinese man identified as Clarence Tan has proven beyond reasonable doubt that finding love is the greatest joy in this world.
Many parents in this world, on most occasions, have a say regarding who their children eventually get married to.
That is the story of Tan, who decided to marry his Ghanaian girlfriend, Edna Sophia regardless of what anyone thought.
The young Chinese man had his parents disapproving his choice of woman.
Tan revealed that when he announced to his parents that he was planning to marry his Ghanaian girlfriend, they expressed their unhappiness.
According to him, his father especially, was very unhappy with his choice and made sure to show his disapproval anytime Edna came over.
Tan, however, developed a master plan to make his parents like his fiancee and in the end, they fell in love with her and gave their blessing to the marriage.
He recounted how he did it in a post on social media. He wrote…
“As you can imagine, dating a black/African woman isn’t always welcomed with open arms in Chinese/Asian culture. And sure enough, when I started dating Edna, I had kickback from my parents— especially from my dad."
“My dad is a great father and I respect him a lot. He has incredible work ethic, sacrificed a lot to provide for us, and always puts our family first— I attribute most of who I am today to the example he set. So it was extremely upsetting when he told me he didn’t approve of Edna.”
He added that they continued rejecting her until they learned through conversations, all that she had done for their son.
Tan concluded saying that after three years of dating, they finally walked down the aisle with his family in full support..
