Man Sues His Wife for Ugly Daughter
This story has been floating around the World Wide Web for quite some time now. According to Snopes.com, a website covering urban legends and internet rumors, it has been making its rounds since at least 2004 and is in all likelihood a hoax. Such an internet legend speaks of a Chinese man, Jian Feng, who allegedly took his wife to court for bearing an unsatisfactory child. As the story goes, Feng discovers that his wife underwent very expensive plastic surgery years prior. The man claimed that this proves that he married the women under false pretenses and that could be the reason why their daughter was so hard on the eyes. In the end, a judge takes Feng’s side and awards him the equivalent of $120,000 in damages. Snopes.com cites that the chances of any aspect of the story being true is very slim. It was first printed in the Heilongjiang Morning Post, a news outlet known for publishing such articles without any verification.
