Lynn Poh marries but will stay apart from hubby

Part-time actress Lynn Poh, 34, tied the knot with banker boyfriend Ryan Gwee on Saturday at St. Regis Singapore.
In what was billed by local media as a 'fairytale' wedding, Poh went through three gown changes accessorized with lavish jewellery at the 38-table banquet.
She started off the evening with a white wedding gown before changing into a sparkly silver gown with floral embellishments, and finally donned a short lace dress to end her auspicious event.
Poh was moved to tears when her 34-year-old husband gave his speech on stage, expressing his appreciation for her help in the past when he was relocating frequently.
As for life after marriage, The New Paper (TNP) reported that as Mr Gwee is currently based in Shanghai, Poh will remain in Singapore and stay at their matrimonial condominium.

The lovebirds, however, will visit each other once a month. Poh said in the TNP story that she does not mind the long-distance arrangement, which has been the case since their courtship days. She added that both Mr Gwee and herself were very independent people.
The wedding was attended by celebrities like Nick Shen, Chen Hui Hui, Ann Kok, veteran actor-host Chen Shu Cheng, Aileen Tan and Bryan Wong.

A ordinary pretty woman will be out of her mind for marrying such a husband whom will MIA to Shanghai after marriage.

But then, ordinary good decent men will avoid such a pretty lady celebrity like a plague, hence she have to settle for such type of men. She will be just another case of 红颜美人多薄命.

By then, one wouldn't be surprised to find out in the near future if she was beaten up and abused by her husband whom have many mistresses outside.

She is already 34, and woman age faster, ten years later her face will become all jiao already.

Do you think the couple will last? One in shanghai, and the other in Singapore. As long as you are rich, any girls will throw their body at you even if you are married, so what.

For men, looks are not so important (unlike women).
Things like wealth, whether he is dependable, will he be good to you after marriage etc more important.

Zoe Tay is a good example. Her husband has average looks, not super rich but not poor either. He is dependable and not the playboy type (my observation). She could have gone for a much richer husband but I think she made a right choice and is happily married.

One problem for Lyne Poh is her husband is based in Shanghai. That is dangerous.

In China, even when you walk on a street, women will approach you asking whether you want "companion". Many of them are young and very pretty. Staying there will surely lead to temptations quickly. Better to follow her huband there to keep an eye on him.

shanghai girls are mostly fair and pretty. most are also not shy to show their love/emotions, be it fake or real. my honest advice.

Just another opinion... it may be better for both if ~

the gal will select a guy who have played and wild enough in his younger days with a long track history of bad behaviour before committing to settle down

So chance of the hubby loosing control when facing mid-age crisis with young ladies can be easily overcome.... :D :D

Posted by perceivedtobe on Tue, 27 Sep 2011 at 13:06 PM

so it applies to both

the gal will select a guy who doesnt has a history of bad behaviour

the guy will also select a gal who doesnt has a history of bad behaviour

good chance will work out

Remember whenever we are young, parents always said don't touch, don't eat, don't do, this and that and we always do it:p. It's temptation that we can't cross. Females can only cross their fingers or toes that their selected one can resist temptation
