Divorces are never pretty, but this one is pretty ugly. A man from northern China divorced and sued his wife for being ugly. He won $120,000 in the lawsuit and has once again made the world question the validity of phrases like “marriage” and “love”.The man has a point. The wife should have warned him that ugliness runs in her family, and they could have an ugly baby.
The northern Chinese man, Jian Feng, married his wife and was reportedly absolutely in love with her. Soon, as will happen, she became pregnant and gave birth to a baby girl, which was when the problems arose for Feng.
He thought the baby was incredibly ugly, to the point where it horrified him. The baby resembled neither of her parents, so Feng demanded to know who the father was, because jumping to conclusions about your wife’s faithfulness is the obvious thing to do when you have an ugly baby.
As it turns out, his wife didn’t cheat, but did gloss over the fact that she had spent $100,000 on intense plastic surgery to severely change how she looked before she met him.
Update: A reader points out that this is an old story from 2004. But I wasn't the only one fooled -- Jay Leno told a joke about this story on the Nov. 2, 2012 NBC TV Tonight Show. Sorry, Jay, if you got this from my blog!
Update: This story was also carried elsewhere without mentioning the date. A good story has a life of its own, I guess.
