That is not just a state of denial, but the whole country.

That's a woman?

She married Yoko Ono?

Abe Vigoda's Ghost: That's a woman?


I saw the picture and thought to myself "that must be the father with the daughter on the right, yeah I would try for that girl without the bounty."

Nope. No way.
 
2012-09-26 12:47:53 PM  
How much for the other one?
 
2012-09-26 12:48:24 PM  
I'll need 10% up front...

Damnit, you mean the Beatles are going to break up AGAIN?
 
2012-09-26 12:48:47 PM  
Uh, is she the dude on the left? DO NOT WANT.

If she's the one on the right, sure she's attractive and rich, but I don't think she likes people born in the Year of the Rooster.

That's two women in the pic????  Holy fark.

She looks like she's sporting less then 2% up front right now.

I thought the picture was of the father and daughter until I read the caption. Oops.

Anyway, that father is delusional. It sounds like his daughter has grown up to be a successful, intelligent woman. He needs to accept that she's happy and be supportive before he ruins any relationship he has with her now.

My parents are Holy Rollers. I was terrified to come out to them because I assumed I'd be disowned. I was, thankfully, quite wrong. They're amazingly supportive and treat my partner like she's their daughter, too. I read stories like this and realize how lucky I am.

Wonder what the terms of the agreement would be - what's to stop someone from say, marrying the daughter, sharing a large house where they don't actually have to see each other and then splitting the money and parting amicably a year or two later?

I thought it was the father and daughter? The one on the right ain't bad...

I suppose for $40 million I would tho

OMG, they have yorkies! My wife and I just got one...

now I feel a bit gay. NTTIAWWT
 
2012-09-26 12:55:31 PM  
is that the guy and his daughter?
 
2012-09-26 12:55:34 PM  
With so many extra men in China, it's always a bit of a shame when women are gay. Now at least two more men have to be gay or marry their anime pets on top of the ones China already needed.
 
2012-09-26 12:57:10 PM  
I'll knock her up for 5 mil.
/with her consent of course.
 
2012-09-26 12:57:39 PM  
My sister has a friend who is openly gay and has a partner in Canada. His parents still live in China and will not give him his share of the family fortune until he is married. They claim it's because in tradition he is still a child until he marries. Until recently he was actively looking for a beard but decided to just marry his boyfriend and hope his parents are just willfully ignorant

I wonder if the lesbian chick would marry me if I gave her $490 million?

Why? Did she come to snuff the Rooster?
 
2012-09-26 12:58:33 PM  
Has anyone mentioned she kinda looks like a man?

2012-09-26 01:01:08 PM  
for 40 mil, i think i'd marry/fark just about anything.....(barring any itchy/scratchies) it doesn't say how long you have to stay married for...

shack up... take money... buy two of everything i've ever wanted.... divorce... get half of everything...

proffit???

Does this partner know all of the Fark posters' girlfriends in Canada ?

If my GIS skills are any good, it looks like the one on the right is his daughter.

I assume so. I'm pretty sure they went to camp together last summer.

Obviously my sister , her friend and his partner all love in Canada as do I
 
2012-09-26 01:08:36 PM  
If I claim to be mormon, can I marry both?

/no shame for that kind of money.
//I'm sure my wife wouldn't mind either, especially for that kind of money
 
2012-09-26 01:09:24 PM  
It's a phase. She'll grow out of it eventually.

What a shiatty father.

Not only are you in denial. But now you are going to have scumbags going after your daughter left and right.

Or better yet, and gay man and his partner agree to "marry" them. Have a grandson via IVF or turkey baster and jointly raise the kids.

No sex needed and Dad doesn't need to know. Hell, I think all he wants is grandkids.

This sounds like a great plot for a crazy romantic comedy!
