A Saudi bride was divorced by her husband withing minutes of the two getting married because the she was busy chatting with her friends on her phone, while the husband was trying to talk, said a Gulf News report.
Apparently, the groom felt ignored when he tried to get close to her and she didn’t acknowledge his presence. “Following the marriage ceremony, the groom took his bride to the hotel where they had booked a room. However, as soon as the bride was in the room, she kept using her mobile. Her groom tried to get closer with her and become more intimate, but he was shocked when she ignored him, not responding to his words and actions,” a relative was quoted as saying.
The husband then asked the bride, who was replying to all her friends who were congratulating her, whether he was more important or her friends. “She said they were,” which made the matters worse.
After a heated argument, the husband said he was divorcing her and left her by herself.
According to Gulf News, the matter has gone to the court, which has further referred the case to the reconciliation committee but the groom is too hurt to give his bride-for-minutes another chance.
