"Cheating" and "affair" have never been part of Taiwanese singer-actress Ella Chen's vocabulary when it comes to her three-year marriage.

The member of Mandopop girl group S.H.E said that she and her husband, Malaysian businessman Alvin Lai, "trust each other completely".

"There are no secrets between us. We tell each other everything," she said.

"If he really intends to cheat on me, I would be fooled, that's for sure."

"My husband's lifestyle is simple. Most of the time, he comes home straight after work."

Chen added: "He works office hours. Yet, he has no qualms sacrificing his rest time to accompany me on my music video shoots."

Last month, Chen's S.H.E bandmate Selina Jen's lawyer-husband Richard Chang was photographed by Taiwanese paparazzi hanging out at a KTV lounge with a young woman. It sparked of rumours that the couple's marriage was on the rocks.

But Chen said that they are going strong and are "trying for a baby".
