A husband in Saudi Arabia divorced his wife just few hours after their wedding for the reason that she was engrossed in texting her friends rather than spending the honeymoon with him.
According to the Daily Mail, the groom took his Saudi bride back to their hotel room after the ceremony in the city of Jeddah but got pushed away by his wife during the time of consummation because she was trying to respond to congratulatory messages from friends on her phone. She became angry when he asked her to stop.
“The groom asked her to delay the messages but she refused and became angry. When he asked her if her friends were more important than he was, the bride answered that they were,” a relative to the groom reported to Gulf News
The argument became heated and the groom stormed out of the hotel, telling his wife that he wanted a divorce. Meanwhile even though a court referred the case to a reconciliation committee the husband insisted on a divorce. Meanwhile a Saudi legal expert Ahmad Al Maabi has commented on the development describing it as proof of the increase in divorces among newly weds in Saudi Arabia.
“Misunderstandings, differences in views and the easy approach to marriage without a deep appreciation of the responsibilities are among the major causes for divorce among young people. Marriages are bound to fail when there are no robust foundations or trust,” he stated.
