Cut finger,Allegiance


A couple from Jingdezhen, Jiangxi province tried to attest their respective allegiance to the other side by cutting off their left ring finger on the New Year’s Day of 2014 and their wedding anniversary.

January 1st is the New Year’s Day and also the anniversary of their wedding ceremony for Mr. Cao and his wife Ms. Liu from Jingdezhen city, Jiangxi province in central China. But the couple transferred the anniversary and happy moment to a bloody memory by cutting their ringer finger to show allegiance to each other, Xinhua reported.

Mr. Cao and his wife Ms. Liu had meant to celebrate the New Year’s Day and their wedding anniversary at home. But during the celebrating meal,  both suspected the other side had a third person. When a loud quarrel could not prove their respective innocence, they took up a bet: each should cut off the left ring finger to prove he or she was loyal to the other with a knife!

Both appeared to mean seriously on their bet and loyalty to the other. The wife immediately took up a kitchen knife and slashed at her left ring finger. Out of anguish, she then left for the local Chinese medicine hospital before her man cutting into his finger.  The husband came to the hospital some time later. When he could not find his wife, the apparently drunken man shouted in front of the hospital staff and  threatened to cut off his injured finger completely if he could not see his wife.

Police was called in soon and the man was subdued.
