qǔ le gè Zhōngguó tàitai yǐhòu ，wǒ cái duì Zhōngguórén suǒ shuō de “xiàoshùn ”yǒu le gèngduō de gǎnshòu ，zhè hé wǒmen xīfāng jiātíng de xiāngchǔ móshì tài bù yīyàng le 。
It was only after taking a Chinese wife that I really got a grip on what Chinese people call filial piety. It's really quite different from how our Western families interact.
hāhā ，nà duìyú zhèzhǒng xiàodào wénhuà nín shì “lè zài qízhōng ”háishì “bùkān rěnshòu ”ā ？
Ha ha, so are you like a fish to water in this culture of filial piety or can you not stand it?
hài ，qiáo nín shuō de ，wǒ xífùr shì Zhōngguórén ā ，wǒ ài tā ，suǒ zuò de yīqiè dāngrán shì lè zài qízhōng lo ！
Huh, it's like you said, my wife is Chinese, I love her, so I'm happy to do all of it!
nà nín hái zhēn shì wèi tiēxīn de hǎo xiānsheng ！shuōdào xiàodào ，zhè lìshǐ kěwèi shì yuányuǎnliúcháng ，chūnqiū shíqī de Lúnyǔ 、lǐjì jiù yǐjīng jìzǎi le dàliàng de xiàotì zhī yì 。
Then you really are a considerate husband! Talking of filial piety, it has what you could call a long history. The Analects of Confucius and the Book of Rites recorded a lot about filial piety and fraternal duty during the Spring and Autumn period.
