When the world is in chaos, the family will not put eggs in a basket, but will diversify their investments to avoid risks. For example, "The Three Kingdoms" records that the three brothers Zhuge Liang, Zhuge Jin, and Zhuge were divided into Weishu and Wu. Such examples abound in the Three Kingdoms period. Brother Xi, we divide Shi Yuan Shao and Cao Cao. The Xu brothers divided Liu Bei and Cao Cao.
It is very common for the big family to take refuge in one side and the younger brother taking refuge in the other under the circumstance that no one can win the world. After this, no matter who wins the world, the wealth of the family can be preserved. The examples of the Three Caves of the Cunning Rabbit have existed throughout the dynasties, and there were many such families in the Sui and Tang Dynasties.

To give a few examples, the eldest grandson Shunde and the grandson of the grandson's family entered the Tang Dynasty. The elder Sun Anshi joined the Zheng Dynasty and served as the prime minister of Wang Shichong. Du Shishi of the Du Family became the prime minister of Wang Shichong. Du Ruwen entered the Tang Dynasty and became Li Shimin's right arm. Fang Xuanling of the Fang family entered the Tang Dynasty and became Li Shimin's think tank. Fang Yanzao joined the Wagang Army and became Li Mi's general.
The family has several boats, and as long as one boat does not overturn, they can keep the family's wealth. Like the Zhuge Liang family, pedaling three boats and turning over all three boats is rarely seen in history. In most cases, like the Yuwen family, they overturned a boat, but landed on another boat.
There was a general in the Sui Dynasty named Yu Wenshu. Yu Wenshu has three sons: Yu Wenhua, Yu Wenzhi and Yu Wenshi, and a daughter, Yu Wenshi. Yu Wenshi and his daughter, Princess Nanyang, were married to Emperor Suiyang. Princess Nanyang was the eldest daughter of Emperor Suiyang, and was deeply loved by Emperor Suiyang. With his wife and wife, Yuwenshi and her husband won the favor of their father-in-law.
