Young Man Begging for Wife’s Forgiveness Kowtows and Walks 200M on His Knees

June 30th at about 1:40 pm, in Putian of Fujian province, Mr. Li who works at a Hunan cuisine restaurant on Wenxiandong Street looked out of the window, and saw a surprising sight. Outside on the road, a man was kneeling on the ground, bowing his head down to the ground each time he crawled forward. Quite a few employees and customers who spotted this stopped what they were doing and went downstairs to see what was going on. Mr. Li found out that the man kneeling on the ground was very young, and very handsome, too. This picture is of the man kowtowing and crawling with his knees.

The young man’s forehead was bruised from kowtowing, and besmeared with blood. A passer-by couldn’t bear to see him like this, came towards him and wanted to help him up but the man thanked him and refused his his help. He said he did something wrong, that he has wronged his wife, and in order to ask for her forgiveness, he was going to crawl like this till he reached Zhengrong Times Square. From this man’s current location to Zhengrong Times Square, there were still over 1000 meters to go.

Many people stop to see what is going on.

From NetEase:

If you knew then what you know now, look how basely cute you are!

Let’s guess what he did, use our imaginations!!!

重回盛唐 [网易上海市网友]: (responding to himself)

Must have screwed his sister-in-law!

Wouldn’t be like this if it was the sister-in-law, must’ve screwed his mother-in-law.

让我说话 [网易广东省广州市网友]: (responding to above)

Wrong. Must’ve screwed his father-in-law.

Must’ve gone behind his wife’s back and joined the Party 0.0

zbw0711 网易河南省平顶山市网友: (responding to above)

Wouldn’t be like this if he only screwed his mother-in-law, must’ve had a shuangfei with his sister-in-law and his mother-in-law.

龙河狼君 [网易云南省网友]: (responding to above)

All wrong, must’ve had anal sex with his wife’s lover.

网易辽宁省本溪市网友 ip:175.166.*.* (responding to above)

I think he wouldn’t do this for all these listed above, maybe he isn’t able to have sex anymore, so he was begging his wife not to divorce him.

This warns those who kneel, that when they do this again next time, they should put a sign next to them, stating the reason.

易新闻 [网易山东省济宁市网友]:

Dude, please crawl in the non-motor vehicle lane.

谁是贼 [网易北京市网友]:

Before, he had given up his self-respect when he “did something wrong”;
Now, he has given up his self-respect “begging for forgiveness”.

夏小阿碗 [网易江苏省盐城市网友]:

He cheated on her, was found out by his own wife. Angry, the wife demanded a divorce!

雨天O不打伞 [网易辽宁省大连市网友]:(responding to above)

His wife wouldn’t happen to be, would it?

气得我都说不好话了 [网易广东省东莞市网友]:

If he really did do something wrong, I believe this man is sincerely remorseful.

空亦空 [网易广西桂林市网友]:

“There’s gold under a man’s knees” [a Chinese saying referring to how a man should not take kneeling down before others too lightly]. Him kneeling down like this, all the gold is lost, and he has become worthless.

上海小鲁迅 [网易山东省济南市网友]:(responding to above)

You’ve completely distorted this saying!

龙德云 [网易广东省汕头市网友]:

Heh heh, had an affair, did you…?

网易福建省福州市网友 ip:59.56.*.*

A good man doesn’t marry a Fuzhou woman, and a good woman doesn’t marry a Putian man. This has now become a most wide-spread saying in Fujian.

网易广东省东莞市网友 ip:14.217.*.*

A true man! He knows it himself! If the woman who picked him up was his wife, then it was worth it for him!!

李欣宇 [网易湖北省武汉市网友]:

To be a man and become like this, pathetic!!

How far would you go to beg your spouse’s forgiveness?
