New York, NY- When Jien Feng, a man from Northern China, saw his baby daughter he was outraged, he said she was “incredibly ugly” so he divorced his wife and sued her last year.
According to The Irish Times, Feng’s wife had undergone close to $100,000 worth of plastic surgery to make herself more attractive and tricking him into marrying him.
“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, almost to the point where it horrified me,” Feng told the Irish Times
Feng filed for divorce asserting she deceived him by altering her looks and convinced him to marry her under false pretenses. He discovered that she went to Korea and had numerous cosmetic surgeries after he accused her of cheating on him. He couldn’t believe this “ugly” child could be his, but a DNA test revealed that she was his daughter.
A Chinese judge ordered the woman to pay her estranged husband $120,000 for her deception.
This just goes to show that not all love is unconditional, and that looks mean a lot to people, even when they love someone. Looks can be such an important issue to some people that they will have pre-nuptial agreements drawn up that specify a person maintain their weight and hair color.
Some marriages start on rocky ground and the parties are unable to reconcile their differences. Regardless of the reason for marital breakdown it’s crucial to retain a divorce attorney to help them come up with a final settlement and determine who will get custody of their children if they have any.
