Groom ‘files’ for divorce at wedding

By on

cf857162e49fb80299620a4c281ff081_LA groom told his bride he wanted a divorce as she lifted her veil to show him her face for the first time.

The couple, who had not met before the arranged marriage, were about to pose for pictures after walking down the aisle.

The husband jumped to his feet and said: “You are not the girl I imagined. I’m sorry – but I divorce you.”

The bride is said to have collapsed in hysterics in Medinah, Saudi Arabia.

Local reports said the bride then collapsed and became hysterical as panicking wedding guests stepped in to try to resolve it.

As is the custom in some Middle Eastern countries, the couple from the western town of Medinah had agreed to marry despite having not met face to face.

News of the jilting was met with anger on social media.

One friend posted: “He caused her great pain through his irresponsible attitude, and he deserves to suffer.

“He should appreciate that beauty is in the character, not the face.

“Unfortunately many young people today are interested only in looks and ignore values and morals.

“May God give her a better husband who will appreciate her for who and what she is.”
