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.

LOL chill dud, was a joke, obviously I know what you are saying and obviously the wrong time of the month for you.  I was just drawing parallels to the more significant volumes of social trash in other countries. Don't worry I wont mock USA or Canada any more, this is a China hating website only. They are perfect countries with model citizens that we could never generalise about.

诸葛亮:

I see the parallel. There's trash in every culture. I'll give you that...

 

Difference is, this is government-sanctioned trash. In America, nobody would be able to sue their wife for giving them an ugly baby, and expect to win. Moreover, they would never ever ever be able to get away from paying child support, unless the baby wasn't his.


In America, we have laws to protect that child. The child would be granted child support until 18. Daddy won't pay? Daddy goes to jail. Mommy can't pay? Welfare. In China, and in most cases, the child would be abandoned and left in an orphanage.

RT is a semi-reliable news source. They often report stuff that the MSM in America doesn't. They are pretty biased, though. Biased in favor of anything not American.

 

And by the way, it's Zhuge Liang, not Cao Cao. Cao Cao = 曹操, Zhuge Liang = 诸葛亮

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.

bill8899:

Wait, you're assuming he married her because he loved her.

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,

crimochina:

you are missing the point also. this has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not the baby is beautiful!

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?

snowballeffect:

Plastic Surgery is wrong full stop unless it is for medical purposes or to counter unnatural disfigurement. To not tell your husband is wrong but to not have to pay for your kid as a result is wrong too. Is a strange one for the courts to rule like that and as such I dont believe its the full story. Is that really a reliable news site?

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".

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.
