A 23-year-old man and a 38-year-old woman’s wedding in China caught the attention of online netizens who are questioning the authenticity of the pair’s romance.
The couple tied the knot in Qionghai, Hainan Province, on Jan. 9.
According to ETtoday, the young man took full responsibility when the woman got pregnant, and ultimately proposed to her.
The bride, just one year younger than his mother, already has a 14-year-old son.
The groom’s parents initially objected to their marriage, but finally agreed when the bride slammed them 660,000 yuan ($100,000) in cold hard cash, a real estate lot and a Ferrari sports car estimated at 5,000,000 yuan ($784,000), SETN noted.
In one viral video, the pair can be seen riding the sports car as they waved to guests.
The bride adorned herself with golden necklaces, bracelets and rings.
Meanwhile, netizens were divided on the reality of their love, with many pointing out that the groom only married the woman in the name of wealth.
“True love. True love of money.”
“Are you sure that [referring to the bride’s pregnancy] isn’t just fat?”
“She looks older than 38.”
“I wonder how he is able to keep an erection.”
“[If] she’s so rich, why not get plastic surgery?”
