A Taiwanese man is suing a woman for the most absurd reason of all. It turns out that more than a decade ago the woman promised him her daughter in marriage. Back then the man was a 31-year-old teacher who fell in love with one of his students, an 8-year-old girl. The mother promised the two would get wedded once the girl comes of age.
Believing he would marry the girl one day, the man supported the family financially and also paid the mother’s huge debts. He had to move away for a couple of years for work and lost contact with the family for a while. Then he looked up his ‘fiancee’ on Facebook and was shocked to find out she had already wedded another man three years ago and given birth to a child. Enraged by the finding, the man took the family to court and presented a contract between him and the mother proving their agreement. However, the judge ruled that such a contact did not have any legal value and was against public morals. The man is currently trying to appeal his case.
