Target: Jian Feng
Goal: Return money won from a lawsuit against Feng’s wife for having had plastic surgery in the past.
Jian Feng, a Northern Chinese man, recently won a divorce settlement and became $120,000 richer after suing his ex-wife. Feng divorced his wife claiming that she had misled him to believe that her beauty was natural, and so he divorced her for having ugly genes. After the divorce was settled, Feng chose to sue his wife for tricking him into marriage. What is more absurd than Feng’s statement about divorcing his wife for her ugliness was the judge’s ruling which sided with Feng after he sued her for breaching their marriage contract.
Feng’s wife had undergone intensive plastic surgeries, totaling over $100,000, before she met Feng. When they were married, the couple stated that they were madly in love, but she never told him about the surgeries. Shortly after, Feng’s wife gave birth to a baby girl, who, according to Feng, was too ugly to be his daughter. The daughter looked nothing like either parents, which led Feng to immediately believe that his wife had cheated on him. After Feng continued to press on, his wife revealed to him her extensive cosmetic surgery history and showed him a picture of herself before she went under the knife.
Feng was appalled and sued her for manipulation. He claimed that she led him on under false pretenses despite saying that he was madly in love with her at the time of the union. Feng must not get a single dollar from his ex-wife because she was never disloyal to him. Suing someone for once having been ugly is absurd and unfair. Feng once claimed to love his wife deeply and now that she is no longer naturally beautiful, he wants nothing to do with her.
Amidst all of this drama, the innocent party is the poor girl who will most likely grow up without a father. She will also have to live with this lawsuit for the rest of her life. Feng does not deserve any of the money from the lawsuit and he should return the money.
Dear Jian Feng,
Although your lawsuit and divorce have already been settled, you should not keep the $120,000 won from the lawsuit against your ex-wife. Divorcing your wife for once having been ugly is absurd and insensitive. You claimed to have loved her once; how can her past physical appearance change your heart so quickly?
Furthermore, your poor daughter is still your child. She has both your genes and your ex-wife’s. Just because you think she is ugly does not mean that you can mistreat her and your ex-wife. She deserves better than a lawsuit between her parents stating that she is hideous. Return the money and try to have a relationship with your daughter despite what she looks like.
Be sincere and be a father.
