The red string of fate, or the red thread of destiny is an East Asian belief originating in Chinese legend. According to this myth, the gods tie an invisible red string around the ankles of those who are destined to marry each other. The deity in charge of gthe red threadh is believed to be Yue Xia Lao (ŒŽ‰º˜V) the old lunar matchmaker god in charge of marriages.

The two connected are destined lovers, regardless of time, place or circumstances. This magical cord may stretch or tangle, but never break.
