How much is your love? 

One very interesting case happened in China bar earlier this month. Two million yuan ($314,204) in cash were found and returned after a man left it with his ex-girlfriend at a Hangzhou bar as a ‘break-up fee,’ who then left it behind because she said it was not enough.

Employees at the bar called police after finding the suitcase stuffed with cash the previous night, China Global Times reported.

Police were able to track down and alert the owners. An hour later, the former couple, both in their twenties, arrived at the station to claim the cash. The man told officers he arrived at the bar with the money to meet his ex, who was demanding a break-up fee.

“I told her I only had 2 million yuan with me, and then I left,” said the man, who was described in reports as coming from a wealthy family in the IT industry.

After leaving the cash at the bar, it turns out the woman did the same thing.

“I didn’t take it and left. I then called him and told him that I didn’t take the money. I told him to get it himself. That was it,” said the woman.

Before handing over the cash, police warned the young man not to be so careless with so much money in the future, to which he reportedly replied, “Is 2 million yuan a big sum?”

WTF is ‘break-up fee’?

“Break-up fee” or  “parting fee” is the money a guy (usually) pays the girl when he wants to break up, as a compensation for his girlfriend “wasted” prime years of her youth and that she has to start over in finding a husband.

But the arrangements have diversified in recent years, with some men asking their former partners to split the bills, ex post facto, generated through the course of their . Insert the role of assertive families, and negotiations become even more complicated.

There are still some debates about so-called “parting fee,” which can range from hundreds to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the situation, and whether any party to a has the right to demand it.

The motivations and conditions for parting fees can vary. Someone extremely upset by a breakup might demand compensation for emotional damage. Conversely, the party initiating the breakup may feel guilty and offer compensation as a way to make a “clean break” and part on friendlier terms.

However many speak about the remnant of anachronistic views: since women and men are equal in modern relationships, their thinking goes, they should part on equal terms – without a monetary transfer.
