China – A man filed a lawsuit against his wife over the appearance of their first born daughter. As reported by the Irish Examiner, the man labeled the child “incredibly ugly” and cited he had married his wife under false pretenses after learning of a secret she had kept from him regarding her own looks.
The Northern Chinese man is quoted in the report as stating of his wife, whom he had accused of having an affair due to the child’s appearance, “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, to the point where it horrified me.”
Although DNA proved the man was the child’s biological father, his wife admitted that she previously had plastic surgery to enhance her looks.
The man reportedly won $120,000 from his wife, whom he has since divorced, with the courts siding with his allegation that due to her changing her appearance, she had persuaded him to marry her under false pretenses.
