Man Sues Wife Over Ugly Baby—And Wins!

Just so you know:  I am tucking this into my big fat manila file of Really Sad Stories.

 A man in China has sued his ex-wife for giving birth to what he called an “incredibly ugly” baby girl. 

“I married my wife out of love,” Jian Feng told the Irish Times.  “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.” 

At first, Feng thought that his wife had been unfaithful and the baby wasn’t his—because he couldn’t imagine that he could have fathered an unattractive child.

When DNA testing proved that he was, in fact, the baby’s rightful father, he sued on the grounds of false pretenses.  It seems that before they met, his wife, unbeknownst to him, had undergone extensive plastic surgery in South Korea.  While she had once been homely, the surgery had transformed her into a beauty, someone he would be proud to be seen with in a public place.

Feng must have done a great job of explaining his humiliation, because the courts agreed with him.  A judge has ordered his ex-wife to pay him the sum of $127,000.

I am reminded of a quote from Dorothy Parker:

“Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clean to the bone.” 

By Parker’s standard, Jian Feng—unfit as a husband, unfit as a father—is the ugliest of all.

    I imagine a smile on her face and in her eyes knowing that her Father in heaven loves her beyond measure. She is beautiful! I agree with Dorothy Parker, her unfit father is the ugliest of all.

    Where did this happen, China or the US? It says China but the award is in $$. Sounds like something that could happen either place, both countries hate women.

    This is an ugly attitude to take, deacon’s wife. It reminds me of cold-hearted people who I’ve heard say, “God hates ugly.” God made each one of us, and as each of us is a child of His, none of us is ugly to Him. And we Christians are supposed to see Him in each other, rich or poor, beautiful or ugly. Not making any distinction between people. Hint: write about something else.

      Can’t for the life of me think what you’re talking about, Roseanne.

    How’s she ugly again??..Even before the plastic surgery she looks like a normal ordinary person, well after it she looks really really cute!! This man is a jerk…..Your wife does not need to be ugly for your child to be ugly, some people have mutated children born/ sometimes so hideous it is terrifying and the parents are in good shape/good health/ and are good looking…

    People like that piss me off!
