Simple text messages caused their marriage to fall apart. The shocking incident happened in Saudi, where the groom divorced his wife, as she kept texting her friends instead of having sex with him.
The bride refused to stop texting, saying her friends were more important to her than her new husband.
Post-wedding, following the rituals, the newlyweds went to their hotel room in Manama, Bahrain. However, instead of welcoming her husband’s advances, the wife chose to respond to the congratulatory messages sent to her by her friends.
According to Al Watan, a Saudi daily, a relative stated that the groom asked her to respond to his request and stop texting. However, she became angry and refused her husband’s request. The relative further said, “When he asked her if her friends were more important than he was, the bride answered that they were.”
In no time, their argument took on an ugly turn and became extremely heated. It was too much for the husband to digest on their wedding night, and he was irked by his new wife’s behavior as she seemed to prefer messaging her pals over getting intimate with him. He told her that he is divorcing her and left the hotel.
The relative also said that a divorce case was filed and the court referred to the reconciliation committee to assess if the newlyweds could be reconciled, reported Mirror.
Notably, the groom was in no mood to withdraw the case and was firm on the divorce.
Saudi legal experts cautioned against the disturbing increase in the number of divorce among newlyweds, saying that they touched about 50 per cent.
According to Gulf News, Ahmad Al Maabi said, “Misunderstandings, differences in views and the easy approach to marriage without a deep appreciation of the responsibilities are among the major causes of divorce among young people. Marriages are bound to fail when there are no robust foundations or trust.”
