Dr. Gong Du Ruo posted an appeal for a wife on his blog last Wednesday. He holds two PhDs, is three times divorced, and is 105 years old.
Dr Gong said he was looking for woman who knew a bit about medicine, and if she were as young as 50, 'that would be a plus'.Some have questioned whether Dr. Gong is looking for a wife or an apprentice, but by Thursday he already had received applications from ten women, including a Ms. Zhang, 52.
When asked about the 50-year age gap, Ms Zhang replied: 'My father is 20 years older than my mother. Anyway, an instant warm feeling ran through me when I saw his pictures online.' [Link]
