Halloween is over, I know, but with this kind of bizarre story it looks like Halloween continues.
Divorcing a wife won’t raise anybody’s eyebrows now-a-days, but what makes Jian Feng’s case against his wife freaky is that he also sued her later, accusing her of cheating, claiming that she got him to marry her under false pretenses and all these must have convinced the judge that the case was ruled in Feng’s favor, granting him $120,000 for damages.
Now, how did it happen and how was he able to win the case?
Apparently, Feng met this beautiful girl, whom he felt so in love with and decided to marry her. Soon, as normally happen, the wife became pregnant and gave birth to a baby girl.
What started as fine and dandy soon became a nightmare to the husband, Feng. For how could he have such an ‘incredibly ugly baby’ when his wife was good looking, and presumably, he, too, was? Needless to say, that the baby resembled neither of her parents.
This bothered Feng no end that he demanded to know who the father was, because obviously Feng thought that the only reason for it is that the wife has been unfaithful. (This reminds me of a Spanish adage that goes: “Hijo mio, pero cara del vecino” (He is my son, but he has the face of my neighbor).
As it turns out, Feng’s wife didn’t cheat, but, in fact, crowed over the fact that she had spent $100,000 on intense plastic surgery to drastically change her appearance before she met him.
Either the wife wanted the ‘mystery’ to be kept secret or she felt this was immaterial to the relationship.
Either ways, it cost the wife a failed marriage, a costly settlement, and, most likely, sole custodianship of the baby, for after she revealed this to her husband, Feng felt betrayed, divorced and sued her.
One can’t help but feel sorry for the child who is simply a victim of both vain parents.
Is there a moral lesson to this post-halloween story?
Sure, there is – have your head checked out first if the screws are all tight inside!
