This is sad. But not sad sad. More like funny but sad.
An Arab ambassador called for an instant divorce after discovering his veil-wearing fiancée had a beard and was cross-eyed.
The would-be bride had hidden her face behind a Muslim niqab throughout their short courtship, meaning the diplomat had no idea what she looked like.
But as soon as the marriage was contract was signed in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, he tried to kiss her, before coming face-to-face with her hairy face and strange squint.
‘He was absolutely horrified,’ said a wedding guest.
‘The bride had a nice personality, but there was a good reason why she was hiding her looks behind a veil.
‘A divorce was inevitable, and the groom went straight to court leaving his new bride in floods of tears.’
The unnamed ambassador, who is in his 40s and has worked all over the world, including in Paris, told an Islamic Sharia court that he was tricked into the arranged marriage, Dubai’s official government newspaper reported.
He claimed the woman’s parents sent his own mother and and father pictures of her far more attractive sister.
A legal source said: ‘Every time the couple met, the bride would do her best hide her entire face.
‘The woman, who is a physician, was very keen to marry him, as she had had very few suitors, even though she’s well into her 30s.’
Her parents know they were wrong for that!!! Poor bearded lady. We have three words for girlfriend — LASER HAIR REMOVAL.
