Today I learned a forbidden love in China between a young man and older widowed woman forced the couple to live in a mountain cave. Over the course of 50 years, the man carved a 6,000 stair path into the mountainside so that his wife could easily descend from the cave.

A weird love story has come out of China recently and managed to touch the world. It is a story of a man and an older woman who ran off to live and love each other in peace for over half century.

Over 50 years ago, Liu, was a 19 years-old boy, fell in love with a 29 year-old widowed mother named Xu. At the time, it was unacceptable and immoral for a young man to love an older woman.

To avoid the market gossips, the couple decided to elope and lived in a cave in Jiangjin County in Southern ChongQing area.
