Two elderly men married recently in Beijing — though same-sex marriages are not officially recognized in China.
It turned into a bit of a disaster, however, as the “groom’s” son stormed into the house, where the ceremony was held.
He then humiliated the couple, kicked over tables and attacked the guests.
“It’s disappointing that outsiders can bless us but not my own son. This heartless child is sabotaging our happiness,” the old man, who calls himself Da Bao (Big Treasure), wrote on Sina Weibo.
The retired history teacher explained that the man was his son from his first marriage, to a woman, obviously.
On January 30, Da Bao tied the knot with his lover Xiao Bao at an unofficial ceremony attended by several friends.
The couple tweeted the ceremony and posted wedding pictures and videos on Weibo.
“There is nothing wrong with two elderly people falling in love,” they wrote. “If even two old men are brave enough to love, what are you young people waiting for?”
According to media, Xiao Bao — a bottled water deliveryman, used to send drinking water to Da Bao and they eventually fell in love.
