Man Sues Wife: Only in China!

Chinese man sues wife for being ugly, wins $120,000

Both of these photos show Jian Feng's Chinese wife. The shot on the left shows her before she underwent $100,000 of plastic surgery, and the shot on the right shows her after those extensive procedures.

A man from northern China divorced and sued his wife earlier this year for being ugly. That’s not a joke.
Neither is this: That man recently won the lawsuit.
That man is Jian Feng and he said his issues with his wife’s looks only began after the couple’s daughter was born. Feng was appalled by the child’s appearance, calling her “incredibly ugly” and saying she resembled neither one of her parents.
With that being the case, Feng initially accused his wife of cheating. It was at that point that his wife, who has not been named, came forward, saying she had spent $100,000 on intense plastic surgeries to drastically change her appearance before she met Feng.
She never told Feng about those surgeries.
When Feng found out about the procedures, he filed the lawsuit. He said the woman convinced him to marry her under false pretenses.
A judge agreed, awarding Feng $120,000.

Shame on him. His poor wife AND daughter!

Maybe they should sue him for falsely pretending to love them!

The "trophy" wife wasn't enough. How dare she fail to bear him his trophy child?

"Why did Daddy leave us, Mommy?"

It sounds terrible, but the story is interesting though. Plastic surgery made the woman pretty, an optimal wife for the man.
The story is little more understandable after reading some about their culture.
A woman's beauty (ensuring the beauty of their children as well), is one of the most important factor when a Chinese man gets married. They usually marry from similar backgrounds, and love plays much less role in their deceision than in other cultures.

" They have harsh requirements for their future wife: tender, virtuous, 100% obedient, dedicated, and most importantly, she has to be beautiful. Because for Chinese man, a young and beautiful woman is an attached pride, a show off of their achievement in survival competitions, just like their luxury car and house."

I still want to see what the father of the "ugly" child looks like.

You used that insensitive word "OPTIMAL"...GAG.....
Does the duped father accept any genetic responsibility?

Looking at the title of this story I was immediatley outraged. However I think the woman should of disclosed she had some procedures done before they got married. Overall I feel sorry for the child. To have her dad divorce and sue her mom because he thinks his daughter is ugly can't be good for her self esteem.

Apparantly not.

He has opted to ask the audience so phones calls are currently being made to the population of greater china (Population of ‘Greater’ China: 1,339,724,852
(That’s the whole works – the PRC, Taiwan and the two Special Administrative Regions of Hong Kong and Macau)

If he isn't sure about their answer he has also opted to go 50/50 so a 50% random sample of the population will be contacted and their views either praised or scorned (resulting in a long visit to a small suite in a secluded location courtesy of the chines gov't. Talks are ongoing in regard to exchange visits to Siberia)

One assumes that genetic tests will be performed on any children so he can identify exactly which of his genes are present and he can claim ownership if the traits are positive. Any of her genes which are of a positive nature will of course be ignored, claimed as imposters or branded dissident whereupon they will be re-educated.
If it turns out his genes are not as perfect as hers, he will sue her again claiming she affected his sperm and thus his genes.
Her ugliness was so bad that all his perfect sperm refused to leave the building and all the imperfect sperm, never being one to miss the chance of a brief foray into foreign climes, charged thinking wayhay all the more for us.

I do wonder in the event of a divorce will there be a dividing up of the genes?

This just shows that there is a huge difference in belief systems. What we deem disgusting, because a man sued his wife and won because she was ugly and failed to disclose it, is believed to be a valid cause for China. Here in the US they would refer to the Chinese as having ignorant ideas. But, how much do we owe them? Who are the ignorant morons now?

A lawsuit such as this one, would also have gone to court in the US. Why are we outraged? Look at how Lance managed to use EPO and sue his accusers, win and be awarded millions for his trouble. What makes us think this would not fly here in the US?

I feel sorry for the daughter. She will one day read about how her father considered her to be ugly. She in turn will do the same thing her mother did; she'll go out and get plastic surgery in hopes of increasing her chances of economic survival and marriage.
I hope this man still loves his daughter despite what she looks like.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. (or is that beer holder in some cases?)

Beauty is more than skin deep, it is the person inside that counts most.

The most beautiful people in the world can be ugly inside.
Them being shallow, concerned only with looks, uncaring even cruel to those who they consider not as beautiful as themselves.

The plain Janes and Johns that populate the real world, who wouldn't win any prizes for stunning looks are the ones who care for others and about others, who look beyond the skin to see the person inside, who are loved because of who they are not how they look.

Looks fade, even with surgery.
As looks fade so do the shallow friends fade away, looking for someone new to leech off.
If your looks have gone and you are ugly inside you will have a sad and lonely life, your true self will always com through and people will distance themselves.

If you are run of the mill or what some may class as ugly, the wonderful person who lives inside will shine ever brighter
The goodness and love inside will always shine through, your looks may fade, your goodness will still be bright, drawing people close.
You will be loved and welcomed, a warming fire on a cold night.

Beauty is temporary, a good heart is for life.

I am one of billions of plain Janes and Johns and i am proud of it

She put all of that money into plastic surgery, went through all the suffering and risk of it, and this is the kind of crumb it enabled her to snare. I'd say it was not worth it!

CanadianGirl said...

Ouch Lis!!
Never thought of it like that. Hopefully this will lead to her finding a man who will love her for who she is not for what she looks like. Notice the husband only commented on her looks and not on what kind of mother or wife she was.
