Karen Mok's lifehacks for long-distance love

Karen Mok's lifehacks for long-distance love

Hong Kong actress-singer Karen Mok knows a thing or two about making long-distance relationships work.

She has been married to German-born finance executive Johannes Natterer, for nearly four years, but is hardly in the same country as him most of the time.

Both 44 years old, the two were high school sweethearts in Italy, who separated after going to college.

Two decades later, they rekindled their love at a school reunion, and got married in 2011.

Now home is in London, where Johannes lives. Yet, due to Karen's busy schedule shuttling around Asia, the longest time she's spent with him is three months.

So here's how the jet-setting star ensures the long-distance relationship works.

Long distance relationships, to an extent, can help you to keep your relationship fresh.
