    And I thought suing in the US was bad.

    Goes to show that the guy only married her for her good looks. How shallow.

    Thanks to Ms Lucy for this awesome, funny gif.

    The person that you are now is not the person that I used to know. You're becoming a stranger that I've never met before. Not liking the change though.

    There ain't no such thing as an ugly baby. And who cares what the lady looked like before. I can dig a ”fake” girl. Odds are, she probably underwent surgery for him, and that sad excuse of a man failed to think about the feelings of his wife.

    I would have been on the guy's side if the baby's father was another man, but there is no other. So yep, this case is ridiculous.

    Default Re: Man sues wife for being ugly and wins.

    I had to read the article several times just to believe that people can do such things... But if the article is true, then here's my take on it...

    Firstly, it's abundantly clear to me that the man married the woman simply for her looks.

    Secondly, I suspect that the man, besides being repulsed by his daughter's appearance, probably didn't want to be associated with his "ugly" child (especially in public, I suspect), and so he filed a technically passable lawsuit to conceal his true motives (The financial award being something of a bonus should he have won the case). In any event, I doubt that the man would have won the case if he had directly sued his wife for being once "ugly", but he could still legally "fix" his "issues" by exploiting an ill-defined, technicality of deception in law (at least in China anyway...). For all his lack of morality, it does appear that the man at least knows how to work the system.

    The lawsuit itself (in this case, presummably: The civil action of the claimant suing the defendant for deception (i.e. her "convincing" him to marry her under false pretenses)) is not so much the issue here than what is considered as "deception" in Chinese law. In this case, I cannot accept that the defendant mislead the claimant because she had not disclosed everything about herself (her surgical procedures in this case) prior to marriage. The surgery she had, if anything, is irrelavent; for it is clear that the man was in love with his wife after her surgery and before she had his child. Okay, so naturally he might have assumed that her looks were natural at the time (His fault really and not her problem), but the fact of the matter is, he had no "issues" with his wife's looks until his child was born. Or to put it another way, I wonder: would the man have still sued his wife for deception if he had found out about her surgery and she had not given birth to an "ugly" child? In that instance he should have in principle, but his shallowness suggests that his true reasons behind the lawsuit had nothing at all to do with deception.

    This is just another example of how law and morality are clearly out of sync--not just in China, but also in countries like the US and the UK where other ridiculous cases have been won. In this case, it's rather disturbing to find that a person can successfully file a seemingly moral lawsuit on another, yet entirely for ammoral reasons.

    You know guys...if that story is true I don't think that the baby or the fact she had plastic surgery were the true reasons.

    for all we know, the child will grow up to look like zhang ziyi. but that is low for the husband to do that. if the child wasn't his and the wife cheated, i would be on his side and would agree with the lawsuit, but over the surgery? that is low.

    I got curious and looked up this story on Chinese websites. Oh look it does exist.

    I'm still not sure if the story is legit, though. With the great gender imbalance in China right now, I think that man should just be happy he found a wife who was willing to marry him and bear his child. What a conceited jerk if the story is indeed true!

    Actually, not all countries have that system. Here in Portugal when a judge makes a decision it doesn't create a precedent. Every case is different so we find that whole precedent thing to be kinda silly.

    Fair enough, but does China use precedence?

    Judical precedent is something from the English legal system, so countries not influenced by the English laws probably do not employ precedent in their legal system. And yes, I did google judicial precedent in Chinese; some courts in China have given it a try, but it's not an embedded element of China's legal system. In other words, court decisions in China are usually handed out case by case at the judges' sole interpretation of the law.

    In which case, I think the judge's interpretation of "deception" was flawed, hence the man winning the case. The rest of my comment's kind of off-topic though, so I put the rest in a spoiler. But yeah... another ridiculous case sprung to mind as I was writing this post and tempted me to go on a rant.

     
    Another ridiculous case imo: Apple went to the court in California and filed "patent infringement" lawsuits against Samsung for "copying" the appearance and gestures of their tablets and smartphones--and won...

    After reading extensively into a certain forum (to which I can't find the damned link in my browsing history at this point...) my overall impression was that the majority of members projected a strong hatred towards Apple, and by the time I had read page upon page of posts, I'd pretty much decided to never buy an Apple product again. I once had much respect for Apple's (so-called) innovative products, but now I see a protectionist company that has a genuine hatred of competition, is desperately pathetic at handling its competitors, and like a real Apple left out for too long, rotten to the core.

    Oh yeah... and there was this one Apple fanboy (whom I won't name here) whom tried to defend Apple and failed miserably; for the evidence suggesting that Apple had succeeded in suing Samsung over concepts (and even in US copyright law, concepts are not considered as intellectual property (so much for consistency, then...)) that should never have been patented in the first place was too strong; and funnily enough, although Apple won its case in California, it lost its case under the same claims in countries besides the US (surprise, surprise...). Also, it's very rich for Apple to lecture Samsung over interllectual properly rights while their key products house Samsung chips and they have a reputation for buying up inventions based on common-sense, then getting them patented so that no other company has a realistic chance to compete with them.

    Needless to say, I'm absolutely against these "localised", case-by-case, economy-lead and non-standardised courts, which in effect, allow persons to neglect their responsibilities to their child (as with the man suing his wife for being "ugly"), or in this case, to effectively claim a monopoly on the market of tablets and smartphones. If we go down that road, then one might as well file patents for inventions of natural gestures and rounded corners--oh wait... Apple have already done that.

    There's a difference between patenting a method (fair) and an idea (unfair), and allowing the latter serves only to discourage competion, thus retarding a future of better products for the consumer.

    End of rant.

    Asians are very serious to punishing 'lies' and being dishonest in overall I think.
    Just like you get severely punished for adultery in South-Korea.
    You honestly will go to jail for cheating on your partner if you get caught.
    So I wasn't really surprised when I heard the woman actually had to pay for the lies.
    I actually think its a good idea. This could have happened to anybody.
    However I don't like the way that man was horrified with his own child: 'that ugly thing isn't my child'.
    I sooooooo do not approve such behavior! Specially not towards innocent children.

    From the link given in the thread, I gathered that the woman had not so much lied than not told her husband of her surgery. Whether or not not telling is the same as lying is debatable I suppose, and maybe in some cases it comes down to context. Still, why should the woman be obliged to tell her husband of her surgery? There would be no need for such an obligation in the first place if the man was truly in love with her and not as shallow as he turned out to be.

    Also, as you can see I don't disclose my gender on AF (or on any forum for that matter). So, does my not disclosing my gender online make me a liar or deciever to the member who would presume that I'm of a certain gender, hit on me, and then learn that my gender is different to what they expected? Let's also say that I've had a sex change for sake of argument, but I do not mention that to the interested member; so after somehow discovering my past, that member attempts to sue me for deception--or lying if you prefer. At which point did I decieve that member? All I did was not tell him/her who I was. The point is, I chose not to mention my past, not because I was trying to decieve the person, but because such a revelation ought to be unimportant to someone who should be interested in the me that I am, not the me that I "was".

    I actually agree with you. Apple is being ridiculous; it's either greedily money-hungry or pitifully desperate. After Steve Jobs passed away, is this really all they could manage? Needless to say, I now have a negative view of Apple, just not to the point of boycotting their products...

    Exactly, the husband shouldn't be so shallow either... When a person has plastic surgery they typically do it because they didn't like the way they looked before, so why would they want to bring that up and remember it? This man is terrible, I can only imagine how the poor women feels.
