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 ďmarriageĒ and ďloveĒ.
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 wifeís faithfulness is the obvious thing to do when you have an ugly baby.
As it turns out, his wife didnít 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. Itís the kind of thing that can slip your mind on the first date. After his wife revealed this to him, Feng took the only right-minded course of action and divorced and sued her, claiming that she got him to marry her under false pretences. The false pretence presumably being that she was good looking. Incredibly, the (presumably male) judge sympathised with Feng and he won $120,000 in the case.
Itís usually the victim of court cases that youíre supposed to feel sorry for, but itís kind of difficult to feel sorry for the man who is angry at his beautiful wife for being ugly at some point in her life. If youíre going to feel sorry for anyone, feel sorry for their child, whom will forever be known as the baby that broke her parentís marriage Ė with her face.
This is so messed up , although I can see why he would be upset that his wife had lied to him about herself/who she really is (major facial alterations would be something I would bring up, I think ), how he was able to successfully sue her is mind blowing to me!

According to this, the baby was only a year or so old. As if you can tell what they'll end up like at that age! I know a very good looking couple,who had 3 beautiful kids, and the fourth was pretty hideous initially, she started off very wrinkly with dark hair that seemed to sit too low on her face, forehead and cheeks, and had a thick, dark unibrow,but in about a year things settled down, the extra hair fell off and the wrinkles smoothed and she is as good looking as her sisters and brother.

The OPs article looked very amateur and bush league, isnt presuming something in journalism is illegal (if not an indicator of poor journalism in general) too, but since its an international affair the context changes I suppose?
