(Via Want China Times) Hubei-based Chutian Metro Daily reports that many Chinese men are on the lookout for larger women to marry, due to a Chinese fortune-telling tradition which states that chubby wives will bring their husbands good luck.
According to Chinese superstition, there are certain features that, if a woman possesses them, will bring her husband good luck. A woman with a round face and larger figure is allegedly able to ensure good fortune for her husband. A 45-year-old bachelor quoted in the Chutian Metro Daily, surnamed Liu, says he wants a wife who is “not too pretty … has a round face … and chubby body”.
asshole bachelor, a 44-year-old minerals mogul surnamed Deng, has had it with attractive women: “I’ve seen too many pretty women. They are not suitable for being a good wife to me. I need to take care of and soothe a pretty girl instead. I will be too tired.” Deng particularly doesn’t like girls who paint their nails (the harlots!) and wear too much perfume (a well known indicator of low moral character).
