Having been happily married for one year, a man surnamed Lu began to look for Mr. Right for his Russian mother-in-law.

Lu, 28, opened his own media company in Changchun, capital of southeastern Jilin province, after graduating from Changchun University in 2013.

Early in 2017, he met with Valentina, a Russian woman, on social media.

The couple expressed admiration to each other after two weeks' online conversation.

"I can't speak Russian while she knows little Chinese. Furthermore, neither of us is good at English, so it was a little difficult to communicate at the beginning," said Lu. "Thanks to translation software, we could understand each other."

Three months later, Lu got the chance to go to Russia for business.

After finishing his business, Lu visited Valentina and won her heart. After a short meeting, they had to bid farewell.

To Lu's surprise, Valentina came to Changchun in August without informing him in advance.

They got married immediately and welcomed their baby in May.

"I really love China and my mother also enjoys the life in China," said Valentina. "My parents got divorced when I was 4, so I hope she can begin her new life by my side."

"My mother-in-law is graceful and we decided to look for her Mr. Right through internet which offers a broad platform," said Lu.
