China orders man to pay ex-wife for housework

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A Beijing divorce court has ordered a man to compensate his wife for the housework she did during their marriage, in a landmark ruling.

The woman will receive 50,000 yuan ($7,700; £5,460) for five years of unpaid labour.

The case has generated a huge debate online over the value of domestic work, with some saying the compensation amount was too little.

The ruling comes after China's introduction of a new civil code.

I agree, the compensation is too low, but I don't know what the economy in that area is.

I want to see the contract and consideration first.    I can't believe they draw up a contract so the wife gets paid to perform tasks and get paid for them.

In China, Woman is much stronger than man. 

Same as ROK.

I'm wondering if this is a real interpretation of Chinese family life.....

It's all about love & teamwork--that's enate in all humans,  is it not?

No, it has not been in any patriarchal society in any part of the world.  Not even your UK.

Too much unknown to claim she should be paid more.  Wasn't she paid with a home to live in and anything the couple purchased.   She didn't bring any money into their lives so she has been living for free or better yet, her housework was in trade for the amenities she had.
