Man Sues Wife For Being Ugly

Man Sues Wife For Being UglyApparently in China, bad genes are grounds for divorce — and six-figure fines.

‘Cosmetic surgery’

The story starts out conventionally enough: Jian Feng, a resident of northern China, met and married a beautiful woman, and they had a baby girl. That’s when things reportedly got, um, ugly. Feng was “so sure of his own good looks, so crushed by the wrinkly ugly mess that was handed to him in a swaddle, that he decided to sue his wife because the awful looking baby was totally her fault,” says Madeline Holler at Babble. And then things went from ugly to crazy: He won.

Since the baby didn’t look like either parent, Feng accused his wife of infidelity. After a DNA test proved that the baby is, in fact Feng’s, the wife came clean on her little secret: Before they had met, she had undergone about $100,000 worth of cosmetic surgery in South Korea. And unverified before-and-after photos circulating on Western and Chinese blogs do show a marked improvement in looks after the women went under the knife.


‘Incredibly ugly’

Feng claimed that his wife misled him by not telling him about her plastic surgery before they wed. “I married my wife out of love, but as soon as we had our first daughter, we began having marital issues,” he reportedly said. “Our daughter was incredibly ugly, to the point where it horrified me.” A judge agreed, and ordered the wife to fork over $120,000.

The wife obviously has to pay a huge amount of money, and got publicly humiliated in the process, but at least she’s free of an obviously odious husband.

What is your take regarding this sad story of a marriage gone ugly? If you were in the same situation as Jian Feng, would you sue your partner, too?

The Truth About Dating Younger Men

There a lot of things to think about when it comes to dating outside your decade. Herewith, the good, the bad and the ugly of dating young:

The good
Dating someone younger keeps you young, says Jane Ganahl, former singles columnist for the San Francisco Chronicle. Plus, there’s that whole sexual-compatibility thing. “If we can believe that nugget that women and men hit their sexual primes at different times, then a 25-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman is the best of all possible worlds,” she says.

The bad

A lack of life experience can be both a blessing and a curse, though. On the one hand, it means your date’s baggage compartment is more likely to be free of ex-wives and kids. On the other, they may still be on close terms with their inner child, a laundry-impaired brat who can’t get enough of video games and/or Family Guy.

The ugly

None of us dates in a vacuum, of course, and remarks by friends and family can have a souring influence on even the sweetest May/December romance. Men have to deal with “vicious” comments, too. And then there’s that whole cougar thing. And let’s not forget nature’s cruelty.


“At the end of the day, the 30-year-old I was dating really wanted to get married and have kids, and I wasn’t interested in that,” says Ganahl, who documented this and other relationships in her memoir, Naked on the Page. “I already had a daughter in college. So that’s another downside. You can’t really ‘work on’ the fact that you’re older.”

The big picture

Dating someone older has its challenges, too. Men raised in a more traditional era can be controlling and/or unwilling to accept independent behavior. And society makes certain assumptions about the older man/younger woman match, too. But despite the issues, there are couples that make it, says Sarah, a 36-year-old reporter from Seattle who’s been married to a man 10 years her junior for the last four years.
