Groom Tried to Kill Self Because Bride is "Ugly"

Suicidal Groom
There is a reason why arrange marriages will not favor ... men. If most young women thought that their basic right is being violated by this century-old practice, then men should sympathize with them, especially those that do not like their future wife's appearance.

This was the case of a Chinese groom who went to the extreme just because he thought that the woman he was about to spend his life with was "ugly." He tried to drown himself even before the marriage ceremony was officially closed and told the bride that she was 'too ugly' before running away.

Kang Hu reportedly told his bride Na Sung that she would be 'bad for his image' after he left the ceremony, angering their families and waiting guests.

Police officers were called to a lake in the city of Shiyan in the central Hubei province, after receiving reports that a man had been spotted attempting to kill himself by drowning.

It is claimed the 33-year-old stunned guests when he apologized to his bride before telling her she was "too ugly".

"Kang has very exact tastes and had been forced into this marriage,” reports the Mirror newspaper.

Qan Tsui, 25, who took photos of the rescue, said: "He was fully clothed and floating face down in the water.

"He was unconscious and I thought he was dead.”

Police officer Hou Kunshan said: 'I saw a man floating in the water face down.

“We couldn't see his condition but when I got closer I could see that it was rather serious,’ reports the Daily Mail.

The man was taken to hospital in a stable condition where he is expected to make a full recovery.
