Chinese woman who had nose bitten off by rats gets married after knowing man for 46 days

A Chinese woman whose nose was bitten off by rats when she was an infant married a man she had met online after knowing him for 46 days.

According to Lianhe Wanbao, the 21-year-old woman from Sichuan, Xu Qin Qin, had been left alone at home when she was 29 days old, while her mother went out to work in order to provide for the family.

Two hours later, her mother was alerted by her eldest daughter that Qin Qin had been involved in an incident.

When her mother returned, she was horrified to find that Qin Qin’s nose had been bitten off. From the marks and scratches left all over Qin Qin’s face, she deduced that rats were the culprit.

Qin Qin managed to pull through after three months, but her growing-up years were marred by schoolmates who teased her for her appearance. She dropped out of school when she was Primary 6 due to the endless bullying from her classmates.

When she was 18, Qin Qin was introduced to a man from a neighbouring village, whom she married. However, two years later, she came home crying as her in-laws called her a monster and told her to get lost.

From then on, Qin Qin grew fearful of going out and spent all of her time at home surfing the web.

Early this year, she started talking to a man from the same village online, with whom she could talk about everything under the sun. The man, 23-year-old Lin Zhou Qiang, expressed his wish to wed her after learning about the difficulties she had endured throughout her life.

Mr Lin’s mother was initially against her only child’s decision to wed Qin Qin, but was eventually persuaded by him.

The couple got married last month. They had known each other for 46 days.
