    Married: Teacher who quit to explore the world


    A MIDDLE-SCHOOL teacher in China who caused a buzz on social media for her 10-character resignation letter has found love and settled down.

    Back in April, a photo of Gu Shaoqiang's letter had gone viral. The letter had just 10 words: "The world is so big, I want to explore it."

    Ms Gu, who is from Zhengzhou in Henan province, met her husband Yu Fu, a native of Chengdu in Sichuan province, in Dali. This happened when she was volunteering at a coffee shop during this year's spring festival holiday.

    The pair soon found they were made for each other and decided to get together within two months.

    This is the first time Ms Gu has revealed details about her personal life to the public.

    When asked about her new life in Chengdu, she said: "My husband is my world, any time and anywhere."
