THE STORY GOES...

... that during the Tang Dynasty a young man was travelling to sit an exam so he could qualify for a position with the Emporer.

He fell ill on his journey and was cared for by a doctor. The doctor's daughter and the young man fell in love and when the young man parted he promised to return and marry her. She in turn wrote half a couplet for him on a piece of paper.

Upon sitting his exam the young man performed excellently and was personally tested by the Emporer who asked him to write the matching half to a couplet the Emporer himself had penned. As it turned out, the half-couplet that the girl had written for the young man, still fresh in his mind, was a perfect match for the Emporer's test.

The young man was awarded the position and returned to marry his love. At their wedding the bride and groom each wrote the word for happiness side by side as an expression of the happiness and prosperity that their meeting and union brought them.
