Saudi man divorces wife on wedding night

Saudi man divorces wife on wedding night. A Saudi man is said to have divorced his wife on the night of their nuptials after he was given explicit pictures of his bride by her former lover.

According to local reports, which cite a story by religious preacher Shaikh Ghazi Bin Abdul Aziz Al Shammari, the newlyweds were celebrating their marriage at a hotel when the groom received a bouquet of flowers with a memory stick containing the offending photos.

The man was so shocked he ended their fledgling marriage on the spot.

Al Shammari said the bride had been contacted days before her wedding by her former flame, who threatened to tell her fiancé of their relationship if she did not go out with him.

When the woman refused, the jilted lover found the address of the wedding venue and hatched his diabolic plan.

“The groom came to see me the next day and he was under strong emotional trauma,” Al Shammari said. “It was truly the shock of his life and he could not bear the scandal.”
