The couple, identified as Zhang and Zhou, met about five years ago, and dated for five months before deciding to tie the knot.
Zhou, a 55-year-old civil servant, allegedly refused to have sex before marriage, claiming he believed in one of those religions where premarital sex is a sin.
But come their wedding night, Zhang realized she probably should have insisted on trying before buying.
Worse still for Zhang — who says she was promised sex at least three times a week — her new husband was also impotent. "We quarreled the whole night and I asked him to seek treatment," she said.
The two immediately separated, but tried to make it work several times since with little luck. Eventually, Zhang filed for divorce, and Zhou gave up any effort to salvage his marriage.
For his part, Zhou says his erectile dysfunction isn't even medical — it's elective.
In that instance, however, the court rejected the woman's request, saying penis size was "very subjective."
