We’re less than a week removed from news of a Saudi man immediately divorcing his wife after he saw her “features change” drastically after her makeup washed away in the ocean on their honeymoon.
A slight overreaction, by all standards of measurement, unless the makeup washed away and it was revealed she was a man.
Most recently, another Saudi man divorced his wife within two hours of tying the knot because his wife
fucked his dad shared pictures of the ceremony over Snapchat. That’s right, in America, sometimes it seems picture sharing is the only reason some couples get married, but evidently Saudis adhere by a different set of rules.
According to Daily Mail, the bride and groom made a binding legal agreement not to share pictures and videos from the ceremony, which was broken within hours of cutting the cake.
The bride’s brother told Saudi daily Okaz:
‘There was a prenuptial agreement between my sister and her fiancé that she would not use social-media applications such as Snapchat, Instagram or Twitter to post or send her pictures.
‘It was included in the marriage contract and became binding. Regretfully, my sister did not honour the pledge and used Snapchat to share pictures from the wedding ceremony with her female friends, resulting in the shocking decision by the groom to cancel their marriage and call for divorce.’
Treating the sanctity of marriage in the same regard as a teenager treats the ‘Are you over 18?’ prompt on a porn site is becoming the standard in Saudi Arabia.
As Daily Mail points out, according to a Saudi legal expert, around 50 percent of divorces involve newlyweds. Earlier this year, a Saudi husband divorced his wife hours after their wedding because she was too busy texting her friends to bang on their wedding night.
Moral of the story: If you’re ever invited to a wedding in Saudi Arabia, don’t bother getting them a gift.
