    The correct form is"百年修得同船渡,千年修得共枕眠"。

    The direct translation is"It takes a hundred years to stay in a ship together,and it takes a thousand years to sleep on the same bed。"

    I remember it originated from the Buddhism.It means we meet ,we get to know each other,we date,we get married,all these things are because of fate and destiny.

    couples meets each other because of fate of hunderds

    这句话字面上来说是:修练十年,只有偶遇的机会,一百年才能成为夫妻。实际意思是缘分很值得珍惜。
