Mother wants married daughter to wed rich man

MALAYSIA - Major Chinese dailies reported about a woman from Taiping who tried to force her daughter to divorce her husband so that she could be introduced to a rich man.

Huang Pei Fen said that her mother had always harassed her and tried to introduce her to wealthy men numerous times despite being married, Nanyang Siang Pau reported.

"Even though my husband is not rich, I have a happy family," said Huang, who has three children, aged nine, six and three years.

Huang claimed that her mother had objected to her marriage to her husband, who is a 30-year-old hawker, 10 years ago.

She also refused to see her 58-year-old mother for months, prompting the mother to call for a press conference on Sunday.

The mother claimed that she had lost contact with Huang since June and Huang's husband was not aware of her whereabouts.
