Woman marries 23-year-old man after paying his family Sh 81 million

She threw in a Ferrari, just for good measure.

The wedding, which was filmed in China, where it first went viral and stirred up controversy.

The woman apparently fell pregnant after a romance with the younger man, after which he proposed marriage.

Initially, the groom’s parents opposed the wedding, citing the 15 year age difference between them, as well as the bride’s 14-year-old child from a previous marriage.

However, the bride – a wealthy real estate businesswoman – offered them a dowry of Sh 10 million in cash, a real estate lot, and a Ferrari sports car, altogether worth an estimated Sh 80 million.

The parents gave their blessing immediately following the generous offer.

They married in an extravagant ceremony, arriving in a red Ferrari with the bride bedecked in gold and other expensive jewelry.

Chinese netizens have had mixed reactions to the union, with many congratulating the pair, but some claiming the young man only married the woman for her money rather than love.

Power of money

“I once again believe in the power of money,” wrote one Weibo user.

“Father: Our boy’s bride is loaded, let’s accept the deal to cash in!” wrote another.

Meanwhile, on the opposite side of the argument, some pointed out that the story going viral only highlights how far China has to go to achieve gender equality.
