A woman from Hangzhou, an eastern Chinese city, recently took her ex-boyfriend to court for failing to pay the 1 million yuan alimony she claims he promised when they broke up. The couple ultimately compromised on a 150,000-yuan compensation.
The woman, surnamed Zhu, and the man, surnamed Wang, fell in love in 2003, but decided to end their 8-year relationship in 2011. At that time, Wang promised to compensate Zhu 1 million yuan for the “loss of her youth“ within four years.
Zhu finally took him to court, complaining that he did not fulfill his commitment.
Wang’s lawyer refuted Zhu’s claim, saying Wang did not pay the compensation because Zhu told his colleagues and his promotion was canceled.
But Wang compromised, offering 100,000 yuan in compensation. Wang and Zhu finally signed a mediation agreement, with Wang agreeing to pay 150,000 yuan by installments within six months.
Wang and Zhu, both of who have gotten married, agreed that this would be the final conclusion.
