Zhao Gang, 32, from Chongqing city, lost his first wife Lu in a car smash three years ago, reports Chongqing Business News.
“I recovered after staying in hospital for half a year and I wish I could have died with her,” he said.
About six months ago, under pressure from his parents, Zhao Gang got married to his new wife, Cai.
“I got married only because she looks a bit like her and I want to have a chance to make up for my mistakes,” says Zhao.
Cai agreed to plastic surgery, after a lot of persuading.
“I feel conflicted. I don’t want to become another’s shadow, but I also don’t want to lose the family. Now I only hope the surgery will not make me look ugly,” she said.
