As you would expect, a cave wasn't the couple's first choice for habitation after they got married; however, they were too poor to afford a house in the village, so they settled, NetEase reports. In the next 54 years, Li and Liang tidied the place up a bit. There is now three bedrooms, one kitchen and one living room inside the cave. Not to mention a spacious pigsty.
