A recent decision in China, if it could be made into any binding precedent, could be bad news for women — or at least for the women of China. After Jian Feng married his attractive wife and had a baby, Feng was alarmed that their children was “incredibly ugly.” Reasoning that neither he nor his wife were ugly, he concluded that his wife must have cheated.

Apparently this wasn’t the case, but the “ugly” baby really did resemble the mother — before her $100,000 in plastic surgery. The Northern Chinese man, according to a report from PlanetIvy.com, divorced his wife and sued her, apparently, for being ugly — and won!

Since his wife used intense plastic surgery to drastically alter her appearances before she met Feng, and since she never told him of it, the courts determined that she had convinced Feng to marry him under “false premises,” and thus awarded him $120,000. What a sting, to be divorced for being ugly, and then having to pay for it!

This must be the least romantic story I’ve ever heard. But what does it mean, that women always have to divulge their plastic surgery history before they marry? Or how about the many other ways women amplify their appearances? Should a woman have a photo shoot of her at her least flattering in order to let him know what he’s getting into? One recalls Thomas More’s Utopia, in which he imagined a state custom where a couple are exposed naked before each other before they make the final decision to marriage (this was written in more conservative times when an inside view on the other’s anatomy would be unavailable till after marriage). Both in More’s case and also in Jian Feng’s the decision to terminate a marriage based on such a superficial quality is shameful.
