Carina Lau shares reasons why her marriage remains strong

7 May – Despite their busy schedule, Carina Lau and Tony Leung Chiu Wai are able to continue to maintain their marriage, which is now in their tenth year. This, according to the actress, is because they are always supportive of each other.

As reported on Mingpao, the actress who gave an interview about her life and career recently, shared, "We've been married for ten years, but we have lived together for more than 20 years. I am very fortunate to meet someone who fully supports me, just as much as I support him."

Carina was also full of praises for the actor, saying that she appreciates Tony's kindness, and also his dedication to his art.

"He has a good heart. But I most admire his dedication and earnestness towards his work. If God gives you talent but you do not have the discipline, how can you have so many successful roles? I am proud of my husband," she said.

While people always said that she gives Tony a lot of leeway, Carina stressed that it is actually the other way around.

"He is very accommodating to me. He understands how I often have to work away from home. I am very happy," she said.

On the other hand, Carina shared that they have no plans to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary publicly, since Tony is no fan of being the centre of attention.

When asked if her cheerful personality didn't affect Tony at all throughout their marriage, the actress said that she will never be able to influence her husband.

"Everybody has their own personality. He didn't try to change me as well. We accept each other and try to accommodate and be tolerant of one another. The way for a husband and wife to get along is to respect each other. [...] I don't want him to change for me," she said.
