Chinese acting legend, Jet Li, has revealed that he married his first wife out of a sense of duty, and not because the two were in love. He had met his first wife at school despite her being two years older than him, and wed the classmate in 1987. They were then divorced in 1990, yet they continued to be friends despite.

Li explained that, "My family was poor. Her family was well-off. She often took care of me. That's how it happened. I didn't know what love was. In terms of how much emotion each person devoted, she maybe gave 90 per cent or 80 per cent. At most I gave... I still haven't figured out. When we parted, we were really like friends."

Although, after starring alongside Nina Li Chi in the 1988 film 'Dragon Fight' (originally titled 'Long zai tian ya'), Li discovered the true meaning of love and married his co-star. He revealed: "You realise, 'I put myself out there. I can give up my fame and success, give up my status, give up my money. I'm even willing to die for her.' You realise this is love."
