A Saudi groom has divorced his bride immediately once seeing her face for the first time. It is when the photographer asked newly married to pose for pictures after their wedding. The husband was said to be furious when his bride removed her veil and smiled. After a second, he said.
‘You are not the girl I want to marry. You are not the one I had imagined. I am sorry, but I’m gonna divorce you.’
The groom explained that he had not seen his bride’s face before marriage, adding that it’s not his fault to make such decision. The poor bride immediately collapsed into tears after the the groom’s declaration.
The couple had agreed to marry each other despite not knowing each other’s face.
This is a popular custom in some Middle Eastern countries.
Also, all wedding guests were panicked. Some stepped in to try to resolve the dispute, but their efforts were in vain.
Many who heard of this incident expressed their disgust and anger against the husband on social media.
“He caused her great pain through his irresponsible attitude, and he deserves to suffer.”
“Unfortunately, many young people today are interested only in looks and ignore values and morals.”
