After understanding a funny law in Hong Kong, let us see another.
Many people comment that marriages are made in heaven. Yet, this need not be true every time. There are some marriages which are made in hell not heaven. The cases of extra marital affairs are known to everyone.
In order to check this problem, Hong Kong has implemented husband killing rule. As per the rule, a woman is eligible to completely kill her husband if she finds her husband is a cheater. However, she cannot use anything other than her hands for this.
If she wants to kill that other lady, that is also allowed. While you can kill your husband using your hands, you don’t have any such limitation while killing your husband’s girlfriend. She could be killed in any manner liked by the wife.
Murder is not always recommended. Sometimes, by law, you might be satisfied by getting a monetary compensation as well. This compensation involved up to half the money the husband gave to the other woman. Considering this rule, many wives filed a petition to get the desired compensation.
Making deception in marriage punishable by murder seems really odd. But, this is a fact which cannot be answered easily. Well, also if the woman wants to neither file the petition for compensation nor kill her husband, she even has the right to send her husband to the labour camps as a working candidate for 2 years.
The law has brought many ups and downs in Hong Kong society and is indeed alarming for a vast majority of cheater husbands in Hong Kong. This is a really important rule everybody needs to know particularly those who marry in Hong Kong.
