Q: Thoughts? Man divorces wife for giving him an ugly baby, and wins $120,000 suing her in court.

Many people are used to returning merchandise if they find that it doesn't match their needs. But one Chinese man went a step further, and returned his wife – getting $120,000 in a court settlement.

 

­Jian Feng, living in Northern China, has filed for divorce from his wife after he found their newborn child to be “incredibly ugly,” arguing that his wife tricked him into the union by appearing to be a beautiful woman when she was instead ugly.

 

"I married my wife out of love, but as soon as we had our first daughter, we began having marital issues. Our daughter was incredibly ugly, to the point where it horrified me," reports gossipwelove.com

 

Feng, after first accusing his wife of cheating, since the child girl did not look like him, was later confronted by his wife with the bitter truth – cosmetic surgery.

So let's get this straight. Even though the woman was a liar, the baby is still his. Is this a cop-out so he can just find another woman and try for a son? The child is obviously the real victim here. Imagine growing up and having to explain that your father divorced your mother because you were too ugly. What a scumbag.

What a horrible sick man. And that's  being polite. If he married her because he loved her, then he should have excepted her for who and what she was. Maybe the true is that, it was a baby girl and not the son as he may have hope and expected. If the court awarded a settlement, does that mean they agree that the baby was ugly? I hope that in later life this comes back to haunt the tosser. And finds himself  being sued and prosecuted for false allegations. As for the courts maybe their as sick as he is. The child is better off without this piece of 5H1T  as a parent, in fact he doesn't deserve the title of parent or father.

experts say that a woman's uterus has a lot to say whether your child will be beautiful or ugly, a handsome and a very beautiful woman can give birth to a very ugly child simply because the woman's uterus is not well formed,likewise an ugly couple may give birth to a very handsome/beautiful child just because the uterus is well formed, so the fact that the girl is ugly is not the fault of the mother or father,its simply nature,she was born that way and she cannot change her uterus. the court must know about all these before the decide a case, deeply sorry for both the child and the mother. hope they will find happiness and become great people in life and then shame the husband

It seems to me people here are very fickle about what is considered beautiful. I may have seen the baby and thought it was a cute as any others I've seen. Sad for the kid though,

This says more about the justice system in China more than anything.

Beauty is subjective.  One man's beauty is another man's turn-off.

Courts are supposed to be impartial...how can agreeing with this man's definition of beauty can this court be objective??

In a patriarch dominated society how can women have any rights?

Repulsive.

Where are the triplets?

I wonder if the court took his genetics into question, I mean it takes two to make a baby.  I read the article and laughed, but it's pretty horrible for the daughter, I mean labeling a baby ugly?! This guy is the "POS, father of the year".

That "news report" can't be true. Surely is a trick to catch attention.

China has always allowed divorce for things like this. They treat marriage in a different way than we do in the West. If a man lies about his income, or fertility, that's grounds for divorce too. Why not allow a man to get a divorce if his wife misled him about her looks by getting surgery that permanently altered them?

All my instincts scream at me on this one, I don't believe we are being given the full story or anything close to it. This sounds like a Sunday Sport or National Enquirer type story where they have taken one line from a case and ignored all the rest of the facts.

 

And no I am NOT defending what has allegedly happened (I think it's disgusting), I just don't believe we are being given the full info.

Third paragraph from the end:

 

"They found evidence that attractiveness passed from both father and mother to daughter, and also that attractive fathers were more likely to produce attractive, feminine daughters, whether the mother was attractive or not."

 

Maybe it is his fault.

Or maybe he "loaned" the judge more money than the ex-wife.

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: My advice? Keep in your lane. If you know teachers who are working ill
A:My advice? Keep in your lane. If you know teachers who are working illegally, it would be them that suffer should you report the school. Wouldn't it be better to have a quiet word wqith the teachers, find out there situation, and help them out? There are many reasons people find themselves working illegally. Some intentional, some not. The non-intentional ones have been tricked and are the victims. Help them find a way to get legal employment.If you are working without Z-Visa, Working Residence Permit, and Foreigners Work Permit for the job and location, you don't have an enforcable contract.. You may be lucky in having an employer who does exactly what they promised in the contract, but why take the risk?Without an enforcable contract Chinese Employment Laws don't protect you. Get legal if you can, and if you can't know the risks. We shouldn't do anymore than try to give meaningful advice - as the saying goes: "You can lead a horse to water..."Now, on the Native/Non-Native Issue. Yeah, it's shitty. There are many, many, many great ESL teachers who are non-natives, including Chinese teachers. Hell, I know enough great Local Teachers who are wonderful with their students and whose English is more than adequate to teach it. But clients don't pay the equivelant. This is market driven, clients pay premium for Foreign Teachers That's the reality and why many training centres scam both the teachers and the clients. Caveat Emptor. Reporting the schools will just get some teachers in trouble.Sure, some teachers have eyes wide open and know that they are running the risk. Not my problem, their choice is their problem. If schools employing illegals bother you, it's simple. Don't work for those schools. Don't work for those employers. It will eventually be non-cost effective for them to hire illegally because they'll have to pay too much for those that want to run the risk. Market driven economics 101. So, in conclusion, keep yourself legal and yourself safe, help those that want or need your help, and keep in your lane regarding 'illegals'. Because if you're fully legal, China is the mollusc of your choice. -- Azriaphale760493
