Newly married bride spends wedding night texting; divorce follows
posted by Alan F. / May 17, 2016, 6:05 PM
Each time the groom tried to get closer to his new wife, she failed to respond. She claimed that all of the texts were from friends congratulating her on getting married. The groom asked if there was any way that the messages could be delayed, she angrily responded in the negative. And to add insult to injury, when the bride's new husband asked her who was more important, she told him that he friends were.
Eventually, an argument ensued. The groom told his new bride that he was divorcing her, and left the hotel. The case was referred to the country's reconciliation committee to see if the parties would agree to withdraw the divorce petition and give the union one more chance. The husband refused and the divorce proceedings continued.
As much as we all love to use our smartphones, let this be a reminder that sometimes they are no replacement for the human touch.

Engagement rings are actually legally a down payment of sorts going into marriage. Legally, add many aren't aware of this, as long as you didn't present it on a major gift giving holiday, they are LEGALLY BOUND to give it back in the case of a failed marriage.

The fact that she said her friends were more important than him probably ticked him off more than the actual texting. She must be really stupid to say that to her new spouse...

Hahaha, it sure is a big risk, especially as you never know her until you're stuck with her. And the saddest part is, there's no guaranteed benefit worth the risk (IMO) unless both work out fine together. Not easy to find such a person, especially if you're just going by "beauty"/"hot" like most men seem to do today... That said, it can also be as great as what my parents have had for 30+ years now. I'm just very grateful to have such disciplined, educated and religious individuals as my parents. Thankful for all the discipline I got as a kid. Back then it appeared harsh to me, but when I just see what kids do these days, here in the western world, I'm just grateful for all of that training and definitely wouldn't want to have it any other way.

Anyone from the middle east knows that GulfNews likes to spread made up news, they are known for their gossips. Not saying that we have crazy people over here, but I will never believe a story that doesn't include names or pictures that would make such stories more believable.

Whether it's true or not is irrelevant to be honest, similar stories to this are happening around the world, moral of the story is we humans need to put our gadgets down when talking or listening to someone. After all whats the point of these gadgets if not to get close to each other.

I bet this was an arranged marriage and the guy made it all up so he can just leave.

Yes, probably arranged. I'm surprised he wanted to divorce her instead of making her "fall on a doorknob" a few hundred times.

They real reason they got divorced was his irrational decision in the midst of anger and his inability to swallow his pride and reconcile with his new spouse. "However, the groom, too hurt in his pride to forgive, refused to withdraw the case and insisted on the divorce." Hit the source link to see this quote.
