Couplehood


Is there any similarity between the two couples? Probably not. One is a union between well-known personalities -- artistic director Beatrice Chia and hubby actor and former DJ Mark Richmond. The pix on the right is quite glam in the Life! section today.

The couple on the left are of less well-known Tan Swee and his late wife, who was not even named in the ST report dated Oct 29. They made the headline when 103-year-old Mr Tan finally died -- 98 days after the death of his wife of 80 years in July. Their death ends the story of what may be Singapore's longest marriage, according to the newspaper.

Which couple are more memorable?

According to Life!, Beatrice Chia-Richmond, who has been married for seven months, is now pregnant with their first baby who was conceived while they were on their delayed honeymoon in Madrid last month.

"That boy don't fire no blanks, man," she proclaims proudly of her husband. Funny and memorable quote.

The report also said he was married to radio DJ Vernetta Lopez, but they filed for separation in 2001. Chia and Richmond started dating shortly after, amid rumours that the former had been the third party, although both have denied it.

The Tans are more low-key in their love that has withstood time, a long time.

The report said the old couple were inseparable when they were alive. The little things they did showed how much each meant to the other. When Mrs Tan went down to the void deck to chat with other elderly women in the neighbourhood, Mr Tan would accompany her but would sit at another table.

"Every day after my grandma passed away, he would look at the photograph of my grandma, touch her face, and start to cry," his granddaughter Geannie Chan said, adding that it is more likely that he died of a broken heart.

Wow, where's my handkerchief?

makes my eyes watered as well reading the post. perhaps people should look back at think for themselves if true love should be the moment where the sparks flew or one that can withstand the tides of time.

Wah lau .. when I read "Every day after my grandma passed away, he would look at the photograph of my grandma, touch her face, and start to cry," his granddaughter Geannie Chan said, adding that it is more likely that he died of a broken heart." tears welled up in my eyes man.

Plus the picture so loving.

BTW>> even though they deny it.. I think Mark and Beatrice had something going on even before his divorce!!!!
