Qian Yulu also said that she had conceived a child for Li Shouning. On March 3, 2022, she was locked out by Li Shouning and did not go back that day. She had a cold and a fever and recuperated for two days, and then returned to her husband’s house. “Husband and wife love each other, care about each other, have a stable relationship, and resolutely disagree with divorce.” Qian Yulu said.

As for the idea of ​​”returning to her in-laws”, Li Shouning said that it was purely Qian Yulu’s rhetoric. As for his wife’s pregnancy, Li Shouning said that he was not clear, and he had many doubts.

In the end, the court did not allow the two to divorce. Li Shouning refused to accept the judgment and appealed. The second trial is scheduled for December 2022.

Hanging up a banner while driving to ask for a refund

“We only lived together for 33 days, and we don’t ask them to return all of them, only part of them.”Li Shouning’s mother, Gao Fengying, said that in order to deal with the matter, she had rushed back to her hometown from other places. In order to pay off the debt as soon as possible, her husband continued to work in other places. “When I think of the money, my heart hurts, and the child’s father also worries about it all day long.” Gao Fengying said.

On the morning of November 27, the reporter called Qian Yulu’s mobile phone, but the number was already shut down. Later, the reporter called Qian Yulu’s younger brother, but he hung up the phone as soon as he heard the word “Li Shouning”.

Qian Yulu’s mother said that she didn’t plan to divorce at first, but now because Li Shouning is making trouble all day long, she has no choice but to stay together, and all the results are waiting for the court’s decision. “The money was left in their house. What he said was not true. Lulu returned it in June.” Qian Yulu’s mother said.

“If the money was left at our house, why would I still ask them for it? Qian Yulu did come back once in June, but in the middle of the night she returned I’m back at my mother’s house.” Li Shouning refuted his mother-in-law’s argument.

Li Shouning said that now the whole family wants to solve this matter quickly. “A total of 510,000 yuan was spent on getting married. The car was in my name, not counting her expenses. We calculated and spent a total of more than 300,000 yuan for her. Her dowry was a few quilts and two people’s living suits. Equivalent to about 10,000 yuan, we only ask them to return more than 40,000 yuan of gold and silver jewelry and 100,000 yuan in cash.” Li Shouning said.

Dong Wenming, a lawyer from Hubei Zhenghe Law Firm, said that regarding the issue of the refund of bride price, 〉Interpretation of the Marriage and Family Section (1) Article 5 stipulates three kinds of refundable situations: one is that the two parties have not gone through the marriage registration procedures; the other is that the two parties have gone through the marriage registration procedures but have not lived together; life is difficult. If the latter two cases apply, it should be conditional on the divorce of both parties.

In this case, only Li Shouning and the woman can claim the return of the bride price if they divorce successfully. The requirements for the refund of the bride price after the divorce are relatively strict, but if the living time of the two parties is obviously short, the bride price is too high, the woman is obviously at fault for the divorce, and the man pays the bride price, causing life difficulties, the court will generally make a judgment after comprehensive consideration Return part of the dowry.

In addition, Lawyer Dong also stated that Article 1042 of the “Civil Code” prohibits obtaining property through marriage. The freedom to marry is protected by law, and no one is allowed to ask for property to collect money in the name of marriage, otherwise it will be deemed illegal by the court and demanded to be returned.
