Confucius described marriage as "the union of two surnames, in friendship and in love"
Yang Yuhuan, one of the four beauties in ancient China, first married the son of Emperor Xuanzong and somehow came into Xuanzong’s favor and became his consort. Emperor Xuanzhong was indulged in the beauty of Yang Yuhuan that he ignored the state affairs and finally led to An’s rebellion in 755. Yang Yuhuan was blamed for the rebellion and forced to hang herself by the Emperor’s disgruntled officers and soldiers. Tang Xuanzong was so grieved that he later abdicated the crown and passed on his leadership to his son.

Confucius described marriage as "the union of two surnames, in friendship and in love". In ancient China, some evidence indicates in some cases, two clans had a longstanding arrangement wherein they would only marry members of the other clan.
Their relationship and eventual marriage, however, did not prevent Mao from taking another lover, a widowed tacher called Two Si-yung who was three years his junior. Yang was not deterred, even when she discovered the relationship, and was engaged in revolutionary activities with Mao for all her life, organising movements of peasants, workers, students and women. She bore Mao three sons, but the couple were separated and she was captured by China’s Nationalist government in 1930 in Changsha and then executed after she refused to publicly denounce Mao. Her eight-year-old son, Mao Anying, was forced to watch her death.
