  1. Zu Chen becomes simple from a glamorous looks when she was married to The Qatari GM. I also expect that she really convert because it is very forbidden for a Sunni muslim to take a lady which is not a believer i am not a muslim but according to my knowledge this what i know.

  2. great job, zhu chen. she’s beautiful and smart. she can bring change in qatar.
    @anatoly guaniezo: you’re right. muslim must marry muslim. i know it well since i am a muslim.
    @pecatur jogja: kok sampe sini segala mas?

  3. She looks very unhappy these days. All the current photos I see of her, she looks unhappy and has aged quite a deal. Sigh.

    I would never marry someone just because of love. So many other things come into play later on, and this cannot be denied.
