Woman’s ‘mar­riage’ to brother ex­posed

China Daily (USA) - - CHINA - JXCN.CN

A woman in Fenyi county at­tempted to forge her mar­riage to her el­der brother. Sur­named Zhong, the woman wanted to have a sec­ond child with her hus­band in 2013 when the sec­ond-child pol­icy had not yet been im­ple­mented, and planned a false mar­riage with her el­der brother, who was sin­gle, to en­able the house­hold reg­is­tra­tion of her sec­ond child. Zhong di­vorced her hus­band and mar­ried her el­der brother in May last year be­fore di­vorc­ing him in Septem­ber. How­ever, the forged mar­riage was ex­posed when a man, sur­named Yuan, brought a law­suit against Zhong and her el­der brother, who bor­rowed 1 mil­lion yuan ($149,914) from the man. The court heard the case and judged on Aug 21 that Zhong did not ac­tu­ally marry her el­der brother and was there­fore not re­spon­si­ble for re­pay­ing her sib­ling’s debt.
