Man divorces his wife for getting him to marry her under false pretenses. She had $100k of plastic surgery, never told her husband, but he found out when she gave birth to an ’incredibly ugly’ baby.
Mr Feng said he took issue with his wife’s looks only after the couple’s daughter was born. He was shocked by the child’s appearance, calling her ‘incredibly ugly’ and saying she looked like neither one of her parents.
Mr Feng was so outraged that he initially accused his wife of cheating. Faced with the accusation, his wife admitted to spending around £62,000 on plastic surgery which had altered her appearance drastically.
She had the work done before she met her husband and never told him about it after they met. Mr Feng filed for divorce saying his wife had deceived him and convinced him to marry her under false pretenses.
The judge agreed with him and awarded him the damages.
I will refrain from commenting on the sad human side of the story (poor kid really), but this makes me wonder if there could be such a thing as DNA surgery? Could science come up with a way to adapt your genes to your new face after you had a procedure? I know selection is possible, but could ovums be manipulated to reflect the mother’s new face?
Sounds like a completely crazy idea, pushing a lot of ethical boundaries. But apparently we live in a world where such a need exists, so I wouldn’t be too surprised if it happens…
