The top 10 modern model love couples in China were revealed by China Women Newspaper on November 5. Couple Zhu Guiqin and Li Guangming and nine other pairs were among those selected. Among those who were not chosen were the highly anticipated elderly Chinese-American scientist Yang Chen-ning and his much-younger wife Weng Fan.

The ten modern love stories are legendary.

Twenty-nine-year-old Zhu Guiqin from Laohekou city in Hubei province donated her kidney to her dying husband Li Guangming.

Yu Qi and Liu Ziping were first engaged to each other in 1947, but had to wait more than 40 years to marry in 1987 for political reasons. What's more, after Yu Qi died on October 1, she was buried where the couple first met.

Sixty years of war and political revolution couldn't keep Ai Sha and Ma Yiya, two both poets from Shenyang, apart.

Liu Wenli and her husband are both pilots, meaning they seldom have time to be together because of work. Liu is the only female captain in China. She was diagnosed with breast cancer at 33, but she returned to the skies thanks in part to the care and support she received from her husband and her positive attitude during treatment. President Hu Jintao has praised her as an "incredible" person.

Twenty-three year old Zhang Jian has maintained his love for Yanzi ahead of the allure of money.

Facing the possible paralysis of his wife, Zhou Jia, famous television opera program host Bai Yansheng took good care of his wife during the hard times. Zhou recovered after two years, no small miracle.
