A court in Beijing recently accepted a woman's plea to divorce her husband after she provided evidence that the man cheated her for years saying he worked when he was actually just a student.

Zhang, 32, told his wife he was a lawyer and left his Miyun area home everyday dressed like an advocate only to hit a library, where he prepared for his post graduate exams till it was time to return home.

His wife sued him after finding him at the library during "work hours" one day. He later confessed to the lie, admitting he had been trying to clear his postgraduate exams for years.
