Online affair

Online affair

Blogging and adultery seem to have become two of China’s fastest growing trends. So it should come as no surprise that they should combine in the story of a man from Jiangsu province, who wrote a blog about his wife’s affair. Around 60,000 readers tuned in for regular updates on the straying spouse. The author’s entries – under the catchy title ‘The amour between a female staff member of Shanghai Railway Bureau and a man from Xuzhou’ – revealed his wife’s steamy sessions with a man called Sui, whose telephone number he also posted online. The vengeful blogger lamented: “What sort of mother is she?” The online rant ended with his wife suing for divorce (and damages for her loss of privacy).
